The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is investigating a crop duster crash that sent a 25-year-old pilot to Saskatoon hospital with serious injuries — but investigators are not expected to visit the site near Aberdeen.

The Air Tractor AT-502B went down Saturday around 12:30 p.m. The pilot, whose name has not been released, was the only occupant, TSB spokesman Chris Krepski said Monday.

MD Ambulance spokesman Troy Davies said someone, likely a bystander, put the injured pilot in a private vehicle and started driving him toward Saskatoon before meeting paramedics on the highway shortly after 1 p.m. Davies confirmed the pilot was taken to Royal University Hospital with “serious” injuries but said the man’s life was not in danger. He declined to provide further details about the pilot’s condition.

Investigators from the Transportation Safety Board ( TSB ) say engine failure caused a crop duster plane crash that claimed the life of a 31-year-old Alberta man. On Friday, the Piper PA-24 registered to BP Airspray crashed nose-first into a field near Rose Valley killing the pilot.

RCMP reported incorrectly on Sunday that STARS Air Ambulance had transported the pilot to hospital.

Between 2004 and 2015, there were 187 aviation accidents reported in Saskatchewan, of which 30 — 16 per cent — were related to aerial spraying operations, according to TSB data.

Over the same period, 244 less serious incidents were reported in the province, of which four involved spray planes. Several organizations regulate the aerial application industry, including the TSB and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture.

More recently, 22-year-old Colby Becker died last July when the spray plane he was flying crashed in a farmer’s field near his hometown of Rocanville. His family said at the time that the crash had “torn a piece of us apart.”

A man walked away with minor injuries after the small plane he was piloting crashed near Pine Bluff Wednesday afternoon. There is no word yet on what caused the single engine crop duster to go down.

Multiple pilots who spoke with the Saskatoon StarPhoenix in 2015 said the crop spraying industry is safer than its reputation suggests, and that good pilots take all precautions before “going low.”

The Air Tractor AT-502B, which has a 15.8-metre wingspan, a 1,893-litre tank and cruising speed of 240 kilometres per hour, is described by its Texas-based manufacturer as “the industry’s workhorse.”
