Incident at MAYO YT (CYMA) (Aerodrome - visual aids, Aerodrome - runway or taxiway surface condition)

Summary

2001-01-15: While taxiing at the Mayo airstrip, C-FRKA, a Cessna 206 with 2 people on board, struck the apron/taxi intersection lights with the propellor. The extent of the damage is not known and the aircraft was not disabled. No impact on other traffic.
2001-01-22: UPDATE M. & M. REPORTED THAT THE AIRCRAFT HAD JUST BEGUN TO TAXI FROM THE APRON TO THE TAXIWAY WHEN THE PROPELLER STRUCK AN UNSEEN LIGHT. THE PILOT INSPECTED THE DAMAGE, AND CALLED THE OWNER, WHO IN TURN CONTACTED HIS AMO FOR FURTHER INSPECTION. NO REPORT YET FROM THE AMO. THE AIRCRAFT REMAINS AT THE MAYO AIRPORT AND THE OWNER HAS SUGGESTED THAT THE AIRCRAFT WILL POSSIBLY REQUIRE A NEW PROPELLER AND A SUDDEN STOPPAGE INSPECTION ON THE ENGINE. THE OWNER OF THE AIRCRAFT IS VERY UPSET ABOUT THIS INCIDENT AS THIS WAS PREDICTED BY HIM 12 MONTHS AGO TO AIRPORT OFFICIALS AT THIS AIRPORT. THE OWNER REPORTS THAT TAXIWAY LIGHTS APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN INCORRECTLY POSITIONED WELL IN TO THE APRON AREA AND AN OVERZEALOUS SNOW REMOVAL OPERATOR HAS ACCENTUATED THIS PROBLEM BY OVER- CLEARING THE APRON. THE PILOT BELIEVES HE IS CLEAR OF THE TAXI WAY AND TURNS ONTO THE APRON ONLY TO CONTACT A CONTINUING ROW OF TAXIWAY LIGHTS. THE OWNER ALSO REPORTED THAT HE IS CONTACTING LOCAL GOVERNMENT ON THIS ISSUE.
