Another Tragedy...


Recommended Posts

Date Entered:2015-10-28


An Elephant Enterprises Bell 206B (C-GIFY) reported entering severe icing with Saskatoon, SK (CYXE) Tower 27 miles southwest of CYXE. No further communication received and the aircraft descended below radar coverage. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) advised and later confirmed that the helicopter had crashed. Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Trenton, Transportation Safety Board (TSB) and Aviation Operations Centre advised.

O.P.I.: Further Action Required:



Scary situation to get into. I notice the accident occurred around 7:45pm and sunset in Saskatoon is around 5:45pm. Icing sucks but severe icing at night has got to be terrifying.


Condolences to family and friends.
