Location: Odanah, WI
Accident Number: CEN19FA018
Date & Time: 10/29/2018, 1345 CDT
Registration: N910S
Aircraft: EUROCOPTER AS350
Aircraft Damage: Destroyed
Defining Event: Unknown or undetermined
Injuries: 1 Fatal
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Aerial Observation 

On October 29, 2018, about 1345 central daylight time, a Eurocopter (Airbus) AS350 B3 helicopter, N910S, impacted terrain near Odanah, Wisconsin. The pilot was fatally injured, and the helicopter was destroyed. The helicopter was registered to and operated by Enbridge Energy Company, Inc., as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 aerial observation fight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident. The flight departed Gogebic-Iron County Airport (IWD), Ironwood, Michigan, about 1300 and was en route to Madison, Wisconsin.

The flight was scheduled as a routine pipeline patrol flight. Two pipeline employees who were working on the pipeline about 2 to 3 miles from the accident site reported seeing the helicopter flying overhead. One of the employees, who had seen pipeline helicopters flying overhead numerous times, stated that he saw "nothing unusual about the helicopter" and heard "no unusual sounds coming from the helicopter."

When the pilot did not arrive at his intended destination, an alert notice was issued for the overdue helicopter. The pilot had not been in contact with air traffic control during the flight, and there was no record of a distress call from the pilot.The helicopter wreckage was subsequently located about 22 miles west of IWD in a remote wooded area and about 200 yards north of the east-west pipeline.

PERSONNEL INFORMATION

The pilot was a Canadian citizen and held a Canadian commercial pilot certificate with helicopter and instrument ratings. He also held a Canadian private pilot certificate with airplane single-engine land and instrument ratings and a US private pilot certificate with a rotorcraft-helicopter rating (based on the pilot's Canadian license). The pilot held a Canadian category 1 medical certificate that was issued on March 12, 2018.

The operator reported that the pilot had 16,894 hours of total flight experience with 16,535 hours in helicopters, 693 hours of which were in the AS350. The pilot had flown 208 hours in the AS350 during the preceding 90 days before the accident.

AIRCRAFT INFORMATION

The helicopter, a Eurocopter AS350 B3 (present designation: Airbus H125), had a three-bladed main rotor system that rotated in a clockwise direction, with the three main rotor blades attached to a Starflex rotor head. The helicopter was powered by a (Safran) Turbomeca Arriel 2D turboshaft engine. Although the helicopter was equipped with a long-range fuel cell, it was not connected to the helicopter's fuel system. The helicopter received 120 gallons of fuel before departing IWD. The helicopter was also equipped with an Appareo Vision 1000 cockpit image and flight data monitoring system.

The helicopter was maintained under the manufacturer's maintenance inspection program. A review of the maintenance records revealed the helicopter's last inspection was completed on October 26, 2018, with a total airframe time of 2,965.7 hours. At the time of the inspection, the engine had accumulated 2,965.2 total hours and 1,483 cycles. 

METEOROLOGICAL INFORMATION

At 1356, the automated weather observing system at IWD recorded wind from 300° at 6 knots, 10 miles visibility, overcast sky at 1,600 ft, temperature 41°F, dew point 36°F, and altimeter setting 30.02 inches of mercury. 

WRECKAGE AND IMPACT INFORMATION

The helicopter impacted trees and terrain before it came to rest in an upright position within the trees. Several trees at the crash site showed cuts, and one tree with a diameter of about 10 to 12 inches was completely severed in half. Except for small fragments of plexiglass, the helicopter wreckage was confined to the impact/resting site.The front of the cabin and the cockpit area were mostly destroyed by impact forces and a post-crash fire. The major helicopter components were located at the accident site.

The helicopter was examined on scene by the NTSB investigator-in-charge, and technical representatives from the engine and airframe manufacturers. The flight control continuity inspection was limited due to fire damage, but the bolt connections to the actuators were confirmed. The tail rotor pitch control moved freely: the tail rotor flex cable was attached and ran forward and under the fire-damaged cabin floor. The cyclic and anti-torque pedals were connected to their respective tubes beneath the floor but were destroyed under the cabin area.

The helicopter's Appareo Vision system was located within the wreckage; however, the unit was badly fire damaged, and no data could be retrieved from the unit.

The engine received extensive fire and impact damage. The engine 's intake axial compressor blades exhibited damage near the outer tips, and the module 5 torque nut had a slippage of about 1/16 to 1/8 inch (2 to 4 millimeters), consistent with engine power at the time of impact. The digital engine control unit and engine data recorder were removed and sent to a laboratory for download. However, no data could be extracted from the units because they were badly fire damaged.

The tail rotor blades were broken but remained attached; paint transfer and impact scars were consistent with the tail rotor blades impacting the stabilizer. The three main rotor blades remained with the wreckage and exhibited impact and fire damage.

Though the examination was limited by thermal and impact damage to the helicopter, no preimpact abnormalities were noted during the airframe or engine examinations.

MEDICAL AND PATHOLOGICAL INFORMATION

An autopsy on the pilot was performed by the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office, Ramsey, Minnesota. The pilot's cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries. The autopsy noted moderate to severe coronary artery disease scarring of the heart muscle from a previous myocardial infarction (heart attack), and changes in the blood vessels of the liver that were indicative of congestive heart failure

Toxicology testing performed at the Federal Aviation Administration Forensic Sciences Laboratory was negative for carbon monoxide, ethanol and all tested drugs.

On November 2, 2018, about 1136 central daylight time, a Cessna T210N airplane, N81KD, was destroyed after impacting terrain near Bradley, South Dakota. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Instrument meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident, and no flight plan was filed. The flight departed about 1115 from Clark County Airport (8D7), Clark, South Dakota, and was destined for Sigurd Anderson Airport (1D7), Webster, South Dakota.

According to air traffic control data, the pilot conducted an earlier flight on the morning of the accident. The pilot departed Sioux Falls Regional Airport (FSD), Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with a planned destination of 1D7. Due to poor weather conditions at 1D7, the pilot diverted to 8D7 and landed there about 0940. 8D7 was located about 35 miles southwest of 1D7.

At 1108, while taxiing for takeoff from 8D7, the pilot called a friend to ask about weather conditions at his location, which was closer to 1D7. The pilot's friend told him that "pretty low clouds" existed at his location. During a postaccident interview, the friend reported that he expected the pilot to remain below the clouds and "scud run" from 8D7 to 1D7.

Radar data did not capture the airplane's departure from 8D7, which was consistent with the airplane flying at a low altitude. The airplane reached an altitude of 800 ft above ground level (agl) at 1132 and was midway between 8D7 and 1D7. During the last minute of data, the airplane turned left about 90°, climbed from 1,000 to 2,100 ft agl, and decelerated from a groundspeed of 144 to 106 knots. Radar data ended at 1135:05, and airplane wreckage was located less than one nautical mile from the last radar point.

A witness near the accident site heard what seemed to be the sound of an airplane climbing and descending twice, which was followed by a "loud bang." The airplane impacted terrain in a rural area in a steep nose-down angle, and a postcrash fire ensued.

The pilot held a private pilot certificate with a single-engine land rating. On April 12, 2018, the pilot received a special issuance third-class medical certificate (as a result of his obstructive sleep apnea) with a limitation to wear corrective lenses.

The pilot started flight training for his private pilot license at the end of March 2018 and completed the training in May 2018; afterward, he purchased the accident airplane. According to his flight instructor, the pilot was "conscientious" and had planned to start instrument flight training soon.

Another friend of the pilot who flew frequently with him described the accident pilot's personality as "gung-ho" and indicated that he was sometimes in a "go-go-go" mode. The pilot's friend (who was also a pilot) thought the accident pilot was "very knowledgeable" operating the accident airplane with the autopilot on but was not as skilled when hand flying the airplane. The pilot's friend reported that, during a flight in September 2018, the accident pilot climbed through a cloud deck with the autopilot on and flew in instrument meteorological conditions even though he did not have an instrument rating.

The airplane impacted terrain in a nose-down, left-wing-low attitude, and a postimpact fire consumed the cabin. The wreckage path extended about 270 ft on an easterly heading, and soot was observed on multiple pieces of the wreckage debris.

The engine was inverted near the impact crater. The six cylinders, which remained attached to the crankcase with varying degrees of impact damage, were inspected with a lighted borescope and no preimpact anomalies were noted. The crankshaft propeller flange was fractured from the crankshaft and remained attached to the propeller hub.

The propeller separated from the engine, and all three blades exhibited leading edge gouges and chordwise scratches. One blade was broken out of the hub and was bent aft from the root to the tip. The other two blades remained in the hub and exhibited S-shaped bending.

The fuel pump was disassembled; the shear shaft was intact, and no preimpact anomalies were noted. The magnetos had separated due to impact and could not be functionally tested. The fuel screen had no obstructions.

Control cable continuity was established for the aileron, rudder, elevator, and elevator trim. The instrument panel was fragmented and destroyed by postimpact fire. The pilot-side attitude indicator gyro rotor showed evidence of rotational scoring. The postaccident examinations of the airframe and engine revealed no evidence of mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation. 

Medical And Pathological Information

The Sanford Health Pathology Clinic, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, performed an autopsy on the pilot. His cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries. Toxicology testing performed at the FAA Forensic Sciences Laboratory was negative for drugs and ethanol.
