The PG Airport Authority noted today (Monday), a replacement part has been installed in the de-icing truck.
Duke also explained the importance of a de-icing truck, this time of year.
“Any snow or ice contamination of the control surfaces can really severely impact the aircraft’s handling. There are very prescriptive regulations on the de-icing process. There is really zero tolerance on any leeway in changing any of those requirements.”
“I am pretty happy they were able to source the part locally and get the unit installed and get it up and running fairly quickly.”

In addition, a replacement de-icing machine has departed from the Lower Mainland. It is expected to be here today and will be put into service after a brief inspection.
Over the last few days, several flights at YXS have either been late, cancelled or delayed due to the equipment issue.
