5 years ago a Cessna Caravan crashed in downtown Winnipeg. It was determined that too much ice had formed on the wings and the plane lost lift. Another pilot almost suffered from the same fate just last week. His airplane had started to ice up and lose speed. However thanks to recommendations made by Transport Canada, the pilot was able to land back at the airport.

Kudos to the pilot for averting disaster by following recommendations. However, are the recommendations of Transport Canada (or any gov't division of aviation) designed specifically to prevent future occurances of the same nature? Simply, he followed their directives, and lived to tell about it. Job well done, and mission accomplished by TCa. It's kind of like an FAA directive/recommendation that follows the investigation of an accident in the US; if the pilot/carrier follows the directives, it minimizes the chances of such an accident happening again.

Fierce, Fabulous, and Flawless ;)
