Canadian Man Charged For Landing Aircraft In ‘High Traffic’ To Buy Ice Cream Cake

A 34-year-old man from Leroy, Saskatchewan has been charged with the dangerous operation of an aircraft after landing a helicopter in a “high-traffic” parking lot in Tisdale so a passenger could buy an ice cream cake.

The complaint has been received by The Tisdale RCMP about the incident around 5 p.m. on July 31.

When it came down, the helicopter blew up dust and debris through the area, which includes schools, an aquatic centre and more,” RCMP said in a media release issued Wednesday.

A passenger hopped out of the helicopter and entered a nearby restaurant to buy an ice cream cake, they said.

Officers learned the pilot was licensed to drive the helicopter, but “it was illegal to land it where he did.”

So, the pilot will now appear in court on the charge in Melfort next month on September 7. 

Talking about the distance of Tisdale, it is approximately 215 kilometers northeast of Saskatoon.
