Ornge Helicopter Down, 4 Souls Lost! :(

Recommended Posts

Federal health and safety investigators want a court to grant access to the cockpit voice recorder of the doomed ORNGE air ambulance flight that crashed and killed four men in Moosonee, Ont., in 2013.

 

ORNGE was charged in 2014 with 17 federal health and safety violations under the Canada Labour Code related to the crash of the chopper, which was on its way to pick up a patient. Before those charges hit court, investigators want to add the cockpit voice recording to their evidence brief. That poses a problem. So far, the only investigation team that has heard the recordings is the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, which is doing its own probe. That probe, with no sign of a report, is now the longest-running aviation accident investigation in Canada.
