Narrative: Mise à jour #1 : Le numéro d'enquête du BST a été ajouté. La classe d'enquête est présentement sous évaluation. Selon le rapport du BST #A08Q0110: L'hélicoptère EC120 privé a décollé du lac des Neiges à destination de Québec/Jean-Lesage (CYQB) avec le pilote et un passager à son bord. L'appareil a percuté la surface du lac à l'Épaule. L'appareil a subi des dommages importants. Le pilote a subi des blessures mineures et le passager est décédé. Selon les témoignages rapportés par les média, l'hélicoptère se serait soudainement retrouvé au milieu d'un violent orage. En tentant de trouver un endroit où se poser, la visibilité du pilote aurait été réduite en raison des précipitations.

 

Please note that for the most part, CADORS reports contain preliminary, unconfirmed data which can be subject to change.

My condolences to all involved and I'm sure the CBAA will have to respond as to why an Audit was not carried out to prevent such an occurrence. Our esteemed NDP MP colleague from BC seems to figure that any accident can be prevented as long as an audit is carried out. Good Luck.
