The Transportation Safety Board of Canada says a strong probability of a lack of visual cues to judge altitude caused the crash of a Canadian Coast Guard helicopter in the western Arctic. The crash killed three people in 2013. The TSB says the investigation also points to the possibility of pilot distraction. The board's Jean-Marc Ledoux says when a pilot is flying close to the ground, the margin of error is very thin. (The TSB says investigators would have been able to better understand the circumstances that led to the crash, had the aircraft been equipped with a flight data recorder or cockpit voice recorder, which weren't mandatory.)
