HELICOPTER CRASHES SOUTHEAST OF YELLOWKNIFE, CREW UNHARMED March 10, 2011 Yellowknife, N.W.T. - One pilot and two passengers have left the scene of a helicopter crash unscathed after a Great Slave chopper went down about 200 kms outside Yellowknife. The pilot was attempting to land near Pellet Lake, but it rolled onto its side in the crash no one on board was injured. The crew was doing survey work around the N.W.T./ Nunavut border. Great Slave Helicopters President, Jeff Denemy said the pilot has plenty of experience, and it's unclear what caused the crash. “Every pilot at great slave helicopter has arctic winter training and experience. This is very uncommon and until we do our investigation, we are not sure why this would have happened at this time.” Denemy said Great Slave's sister company, Air Tindi, was able to pick up the crew within three hours of the crash. An investigator with the Transportation Safety Board looking into the crash, said he's still waiting to speak with the crew to figure out what happened.
