Beaver Air Services – Beech A100 King Air – Smoke in Cockpit

C-FSKA, a Beech A100 King Air aircraft operated by Beaver Air Services (dba Missinippi Airways), was conducting a flight York Landing (CZAC), MB to Thompson (CYTH), MB with 2 crew members
and 2 passengers on board. During cruise flight, the flight crew smelled and observed electrical smoke and fumes in the cockpit.

All unnecessary electrical equipment was turned off, and the
smoke was evacuated. The flight crew advised ATC, however no emergency was declared. The flight continued to CYTH where an uneventful landing was conducted with emergency vehicles
standing by as a precautionary measure.

A subsequent inspection by the operator’s maintenance revealed that the aircraft’s heater vent blower had seized. The vent blower motor was replaced, and the aircraft was returned to service.
