TSB says all commercial Beaver planes should have stallwarning system

first_imgMONTREAL – The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is recommending all Beaver-type planes be equipped with a stall-warning system.The agency made the announcement Thursday as it released its report into a fatal crash involving a Beaver floatplane that struck ground near Tadoussac, Que., in 2015.As the pilot tried to manoeuvre the plane closer to the ground, it stalled in a steep turn and crashed, killing all six people on board.The TSB said the experienced pilot didn’t realize a stall was imminent when he was making the turn and the aircraft had no stall-warning system.It is recommending Transport Canada require all commercially operated de Havilland DHC-2 float planes, known as Beaver aircraft, be equipped with such a system.The TSB said there are currently 382 DHC-2s registered in Canada, 223 of which are used commercially.last_img
