In its report that it was made public in Montreal, the board suggests that the pilot took some risks before landing.

The plane crash that caused the death of seven people in the Magdalen Islands, including that of political columnist Jean Lapierre, is due to an “unstabilized approach” of the driver, has decided the Office of transportation safety.

In its report that it was made public in Montreal, the board suggests that the pilot took some risks before landing.

Thus, he concludes that when the pilot was in cruise flight, it has changed its approach to delay the onset of its descent.

It is, therefore, found himself with less time to react and a number of maneuvers to perform before landing.

The pilot therefore continued his approach, but not stabilized, concludes the Office of transportation safety.

The chair of the TSB, Kathy Fox, says ” a too large number of these approaches to non-stabilized “, which may lead to accidents.

The TSB also points out that the device in question, the Mitsubishi MU-2, ” presents challenges to control “.

The accident of march 2016 has caused the death of seven people, including former politician, his wife, his two brothers, his sister, the pilot and the copilot. Brothers and sisters, and Lapierre went to the Magdalen islands to attend the funeral of their father.

Mr. Lapierre had a long political career before becoming one of the chroniclers policies the most prominent and best-informed. He had been a member of the liberal Party of Canada and minister in the liberal government of Paul Martin.
