Accident: 23 mi. SW of Lac Cesar, QC, 23-Sep-2008. The float-equipped aircraft owned by Club César (1993) Inc., with the pilot and one passenger on board, was on a visual flight rules flight from Sainte-Véronique, QC, to the outfitting operation on Lac César, QC. When the aircraft was about 30 nm. from the destination, the weather deteriorated. After a few minutes, the pilot could neither continue the flight nor reverse course. For several minutes, the pilot tried to find a safe spot for a water landing, without success. He then decided to set the aircraft down in the trees. The two occupants, who were wearing their seatbelts, were not injured and had no difficulty evacuating the aircraft. The aircraft sustained substantial damage. It struck the trees at low speed and the floats absorbed most of the impact forces. After the collision, the front part of the floats was touching the ground and the wings and empennage were holding the aircraft in anose-downposition. The aircraft sustained major damage to its two floats and damage was also observed on the underside of both wings. The cabin was not significantly deformed and the two forward seats and seatbelts withstood the impact forces; this explains the absence of injuries to the occupants. The occurrence happened at approximately 15:30 EDT. Investigation report A08Q0187.

Total time: 15,813 hrs at Sep-2008.
