Cessna 150L (C-FEKY) from Edmonton/Cooking Lake, AB (CEZ3) to Edmonton/Cooking Lake, AB (CEZ3) suffered an engine failure on climb-out. The pilot attempted to conduct a forced landing in a nearby field, however, the main landing gear clipped the tree line on the approach. The aircraft flipped and landed upside down in a field. Only the pilot was on board, no injuries. The sole pilot self-extricated. The Emergency Response Services (ERS) unit was on scene. The extent of damage to the aircraft remains undetermined. The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) was notified, as well as the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Trenton. (Information merged from Aviation Incident Report for Incident #2020-06-06743)
2020-07-02: Update TSB Report #A20W0044: C-FEKY, a privately operated Cessna 150L, was conducting circuits at Cooking Lake (CEZ3), AB. Following the first successful circuit, the pilot came to a full stop on the runway prior to the first taxiway, approximately half way down Runway 28. The pilot elected to commence a second take off from the intersection of Runway 28 and the taxiway, with approximately 1550 feet of runway remaining. The aircraft became airborne just prior to the end of the runway. During the climb out, the aircraft did not gain enough altitude to clear the trees that were approximately 3250 feet from the start of the take-off run (approximately 1650 feet from the end of the runway). The wheels contacted the top of the trees and the aircraft stalled just over the field. The aircraft impacted the wet ground and flipped over. The pilot was able to get out of the aircraft on their own and were not injured. The aircraft was substantially damaged.
