CF-MPR Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Air Division, Ottawa, ON. Delivered Sep-1956.

C-FMPR Royal Canadian Mounted Police Air Services, Ottawa, ON. On CCAR at May-1981. Canx 05-Dec-1984 following accident.

Accident: N of Sept Iles, QC. Lat 51.03N, Long 66.22W. 30-Aug-1984. (Translated from French) The aircraft was equipped with floats, and left Squaw Lake (QC) to conduct a flight under visual flight rules (VFR) up to Wabush, Sept-Îles (QC). The ceiling was falling and the visibility decreasing in fog. To maintain VFR, the pilot descended below the top of the hills and flew along the lakes along its route. Forty miles north of Sept-Iles, the aircraft struck trees on rising terrain and came to rest in a wooded area.

The pilot had checked the weather before the flight. The meteorological conditions at Sept-Iles were below VFR minimums, but they were set to improve to become VFR marginal at the time of arrival at the planned destination. The approach of a cold front made the air mass in the region unstable and after the forecast, the ceiling descended to 500 feet above the ground and the visibility was to be limited to a mile in thunderstorms. The pilot was advised of the latest weather conditions for Sept-Iles, which indicated an improvement at arrival time. Meteorological conditions provided for the area were such that the pilot could have expected to encounter poor weather conditions below VFR minimums. With this knowledge, the pilot continued the flight to the moment he was forced to fly at a very low altitude to stay VFR. He could not see the rising terrain before it arrived because of the poor visibility and the aircraft encountered trees. When the weather started to deteriorated, the pilot could have turned around and landed VFR in a suitable location or climbed to height and filed an IFR flight plan.
