General Pilot Talk / Re: 2 plane collided near Carp November 4

Very unfortunate! Can't wait for the preliminary reports from TSB to get more details.

You can hear the radio call, by the surviving pilot first reporting the collision to ATC, at this location:

Just forward to 14 min and 50 seconds and listen to the call from Charlie-Sierra-Lima.

General Pilot Talk / Re: Pilot seriously injured in crash off Old Almonte Road
« Last post by npereira on October 22, 2018, 01:41:13 PM »
this is a QuadCity Chalenger2 Ultralight.

my opinion:
looks like the pilot had an engine out and tried to make the field but clipped the wires.
That morning, it's was prime carb icing temperatures.
the pilot had registered this plane on September 29th.
Pilot is (from what I heard) a registered PPL.

My personal opinion is that the lack of experience of emergency engine out procedures caused him to mis-judge the descent, thnking he was making the field accross the road but stalled and cliped the wires.

This is just my opinion from others account and digging I did. Although I could be way off.

The pilot is recovering.

Only what I've read in the news. That said, Global put a lot of photos on their site, and I can't help but think what a shame it is that appears he tried to land on the road instead of the flat fields clearly visible all around.

Learning to fly, when I asked my instructor about landing on roads, he said "Next time you are driving on a country road, look up and to the side and see how many wires there are crossing and alongside most roads. Then look down and notice the steep drainage ditch on both sides. You wont see any of those from the air.  If you land in a field, you will very likely damage the aircraft, but walk away. If you land on a road, you will either do no damage at all, or kill yourself."

I've never had to make a forced landing, but if I do, I am picking a field!
