Recommended Posts

I hope they get it, we are flying fully deiced Super Pumas out of Halifax, that kit is the cat's pajamas for winter flying! I do not miss the S61 in icing season!


After 7000 hours of 212, 61 and 76 in the Beaufort and the High Arctic - DO I EVER WISH!!!!!


Oh, and a bit of 214ST and 61 in your part of the world.

Narrative: London Air Services Ltd. Agusta AW139, registration C-FPSE enroute IFR from Tofino (CYAZ) to Victoria Harbour (Camel Point, CBF7) encountered icing conditions that required a descent to 5000' which was below the IFR minimum alititude of 7000'. Controllers treated the situation as an emergency and monitored the aircraft to ensure that the helicopter remained over water, clear of terrain. The aircraft was handed off to Seattle (SEA) Air Route Traffic Control Centre (ARTCC) at 1850z.
