|Owner/operator:||OSM Aviation Academy AS|
|Fatalities:||Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 2|
|Aircraft damage:|| None|
|Location:||Sola TMA (ENZV), between Lysefjorden and Hunnedalen -
|Phase:|| En route|
|Investigating agency: ||AIBN|
|Confidence Rating:|| Accident investigation report completed and information captured|
The aircraft was certified for IMC, but not to be used in icing conditions. The crew observed slow flight controls and aircraft vibrations. With assistance from the air traffic services, the crew changed the route and made descent to lower altitude where they got rid of the ice. The aircraft landed normally at Stavanger airport Sola.
After this serious incident, the flight school has implemented measures to ensure that risk of icing is adequately considered during the planning of longer IFR flights. The main measure, do not fly IMC when the 0-isotherm is below Minimum Safe Altitude, could have prevented the incident in question. The Accident Investigation Board Norway believes that similar precautions should be consider by anyone flying IFR with aircraft that are not certified for icing conditions.
