A) No it hasn't. Not in CYLW lately.

B) Theres no wx that would cause you to go -2000fpm on a 500. Even on 1 engine.

Condolences to all involved.

Long duty day, regardless if split duty, wouldn't have helped deal with emergency issues. Especially if single pilot. Easy to make mistakes, pull the wrong lever after losing an engine, etc. Could have been medical, who knows.

The TSB is incredible at what they do, I'm sure they'll get it figured out in due time.

GTNT took off from YLW five minutes after I did yesterday; I doubt it was weather related. My condolences to those affected.

This was a privately registered aircraft. But all good points.

The 3? I have are
1) was there a strong jet stream or Mountain wave in the Kelowna area those have been known to exceed 3000ft min
2)medical issues
3) did aircraft have inflight structural failure
Note this is not speculation. But?
To his family I was fortunate to have met him 1 once. When he was industry minister. Also he took the time to answer my opposition to the sale of mc Donald Dwettwiller to ALLIANZ. Re sar sat 2 technology it spoke volumes to me about the kind of guy he was. My sincere condolences to his family and to also to the families of all on board.

Well .. okay ..your post is made 305pm.
FYI there's a radar image publicized for 9:40pm last night shown on CBC 3:45pm today by Chris, of the wx network. Seems there ... if you performed a right turnout at YLW off rwy16 for climbout west could encounter markedly different precip in climb than in the left turnout into a northeast climbout east of Kelowna.

I spent a fair amount of time sitting in a relative's house at Black Mountain in Rutland this summer and every jet I saw coming of 16 climbed straight ahead and abeam Black Mountain started a climbing left turn for eastern points.

Do we know they departed off 16. The METAR seems to favor 34, no?
