The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) released its final investigation report into the fatal accident that occurred in Winnipeg, on October 6, 2005 involving a Cessna 208 Caravan. Although the aircraft took off clean, the performance diminished as ice built up on its critical surfaces. While encouraged that significant safety actions have been taken by regulatory authorities to date, the Board believes that it would be safer still if Cessna 208 pilots never take off or continue flight into anything more than light icing.
