Narrative:
C-GJBV, a Beech King Air A100 operated by SkyJet, was conducting flight SJ512 based on instrument flight rules from Rouyn-Noranda, QC (CYUY) to Quebec City/Jean Lesage Intl, QC (CYQB) with two crew members and six passengers aboard. The aircraft was on RNAV approach (GNSS) for Runway 24 and had just passed the ULBOM final approach fix when the crew saw a drone at the tip of its left wing. The aircraft hit the drone at an altitude of 1500 feet and the crew declared an emergency (PAN PAN). Aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) services were deployed and the aircraft landed safely on Runway 24. An inspection of the aircraft revealed a few scratches and a paint transfer on the left wing top surface, as well as friction marks on the deicer boot. No one was injured, and the aircraft was returned to service.
