Narrative:
While taxiing on Eagle Flight Centre property at the Sudbury Municipal Airport (CYSB), an ultralight Kitfox aircraft (C-IGVW) taxiied under power into tied-down Eagle Flight Centre Cessna 172 (C-GGXL). The Kitfox's propeller sliced the leading edge of the Cessna 172's wing in several places. The owner stated that while taxiing on a grassy area, the castoring tail wheel came off the locking detent. When power was applied (and coincidentally, a gust of wind arose), the aircraft weather-cocked and collided with a parked aircraft.
