Accident Sebastian Municipal Airport, FL. 09-Feb-2015 Two de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft, N30EA and N70EA were both parked right next to each other, wing-tip to wing-tip at Sebastian Municipal Airport, Florida. N30AE was parked on the right side of N70AE.

Both aircraft were planning to conduct a re-positioning flight that was destined for the Exuma International Airport, Bahamas.

The pilot of N30AE stated that she had just started the engines when she advanced the throttles (one at a time) to bring the generators on-line. At that moment, the airplane began to move forward. She said she tried to apply the brakes, but they were not working and she was unable to move the tiller, which was positioned all the way to the left. The pilot was unable to stop the airplane and it collided with N70AE.

The pilot of N70AE said that he had not started the engines yet when N30AE struck his airplane.

The repairs were completed on site in Sebastian in a joint project between Wipaire Inc., and Regent Aircraft Services of Calgary.

Ferried. 18-Jun-2015 Sebastian, FL - Dalton, GA - Ottawa-Skydive Chicago, IL.
