A privately registered float-equipped Cessna A185F aircraft was conducting a post- maintenance test flight from Gods Lake, MB, approximately 3 nm east of Gods Lake Narrows Airport (CYGO), MB. The aircraft was being operated on the left fuel tank only due to minimum fuel.
While turning to a final approach to the lake, the aircraft was banked sharply to the left and the engine (Teledyne Continental IO-520-D) abruptly lost power. The aircraft landed short of the intended landing area in a stand of trees. The pilot, who was the sole occupant, was not injured. The aircraft was substantially damaged.
