DND/Initial Flight Safety Report: CT-114 Tutor Accident of October 9, 2008

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 22, 2008) - The initial flight safety report entitled "From the Investigator" (FTI), dealing with the October 9, 2008 CT-114 Tutor crash in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, will be available today on the Air Force Directorate of Flight Safety (DFS) website.

The Directorate of Flight Safety (DFS) investigation is still ongoing, but the FTI is the team's initial report containing the facts of the accident as they are known at this time. Conclusions, cause factors and recommendations are not contained in the FTI report. A final Flight Safety Incident Report (FSIR) will be published on the same website, normally about one year after the accident.

Flight safety investigations are ordered to determine the causes of accidents so measures can be put in place to prevent a recurrence. These preventive measures can then be applied throughout the Air Force.

The FTI can be viewed at the DFS web site as follows:
