AVIATION SAFETY CHRONICLE
THE TURN IN THE FINAL (or the turn that kills)
According to Transport Canada, almost 30 percent of fatal accidents are due to a loss of control during takeoff or landing. And often they are experienced pilots. How do you explain that? You'd better understand what's going on, because it could happen to you!
Several accidents occur during a turn with a large incline during the turn in the final. The pilot realizes that he is not aligned and tries to correct by a sharp turn at 45 ° or even 60 ° while raising his nose to keep his altitude. The result: the speed decreases and the plane stalls. At this altitude, it is unlikely to recover.
What happens to your stall speed during a turn? At 45 °, the stall speed will be 20% higher than that at level flight and at 60 °, it will be 41% higher. So, for example, a Cessna 172R which stalls at a stall speed (Vs) of 51 knots (POH) will stall at 72 knots during a 60 ° turn. The recommended approach speed is 65-75 knots. The pilot who is used to making his approaches at 70 knots and who decides to make a 60 ° turn while straightening the nose is likely to stall. This has happened to many.
The lesson is that if your approach is not stabilized and you are not aligned in advance in the final go straight. The habit should be that when we feel discomfort with our approach we should simply go around and come back. We will not tell anyone!
Watch this Smart Pilot video on the dos and don'ts in this crucial phase of a flight.

FAILURE OF THE KANNAD 406 AF-COMPACT EMERGENCY LOCATOR TRANSMITTER SWITCH LOCKING SYSTEM
On 10 July 2019, a privately operated Robinson R44 helicopter (registration C-FJLH, serial number 2044) was conducting a visual flight rules flight from De La Bidière Lake, Quebec, to Sainte-Sophie, Quebec, with 1 pilot and 1 passenger on board. The aircraft never arrived at its intended destination. The Joint Rescue Coordination Centre Trenton was notified the next day that the aircraft was missing, and a search was begun. No signal was received from the emergency locator transmitter (ELT).

AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SERVICE MONTREAL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MIRABEL, (CYMX)
Since January 30th, an ATC Tower is in operation for 16 hours a day from 1100 to 0300 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) (1000 to 0200 UTC during daylight savings time) using the current Mandatory Frequency (MF) 119.1 MHz.
The Control Zone (CZ) and Terminal Control Area (TCA) become Class C airspace for the 16 hours per day when the tower is in operation.
The Flight Service Station (FSS) is in operation for 8 hours a day on the same frequency 119.1 MHz from 0300 to 1100 UTC (0200 to 1000 UTC during daylight savings time) and the CZ and TCA become Class E and Transponder Airspace.
Ground Control Service during ATC Tower operating hours and Ground Advisory Service during FSS operating hours is provided on very high frequency (VHF) frequency 121.8 MHz.

AN INNOVATION FOR IFR PILOTS
André Durocher, director of the Aviateurs.Québec board of directors and a pilot very well known in the community, recently announced that the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) has finally approved his invention `` AIRCRAFT APPROACH CHART '' after almost 3 years of negotiations and 7 years of research!
Its approach for IFR approach charters is to simplify the presentation of information. Will he be able to convince you?

10th SAINTE-ANNE-DU-LAC WINTER RVA
Still the weather… Nice temperature at -12 Celsius on arrival and -7 Celsius around noon, but it is once again the wind which will be the limiting factor, a bit like it was the case in Montebello at the end of January, but adding good gusts at times. Eleven planes and five helicopters made it possible, despite everything, to have a good gathering.
The five helicopters arriving in turn from Saint-Rémi on the South Shore created a craze for rotary wings. A Cessna 120 arrived early from Rouyn (after stopping at Mont-Laurier for gasoline) is definitely the visitor from the farthest this year.
Nice meeting, great camaraderie, great day!
