Narrative:
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), Canada, 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 2500 feet asl, approximately 7 nautical miles from the midpoint of runway 24, and the crew declared an emergency (PAN PAN).
Aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) services were deployed and the aircraft landed safely on runway 24.
The damage was limited to a dent at the point of impact on the left wing de-icing boot, as well as scratches on the upper surface of the left wing. The damage was minor and had no effect on the airworthiness of the aircraft. The aircraft was returned to service the same day.

The investigation was unable to identify the operator of the drone involved in the collision. No debris from the drone could be found, and it could not be determined with certainty whether it was used for recreational or non-recreational purposes.
