At the beginning of the takeoff roll, on an untreated runway surface contaminated with ice, the aircraft started an uncontrollable drift to the left. The takeoff was abandoned and the aircraft slid off the runway at slow speed without suffering any damage. The Airport Authority and aircraft operator have amended their procedures for operations on runway surfaces contaminated by snow or ice.
