Incident at 22NM MONTRÉAL / PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU INTL QC (CYUL)

A Jazz Bombardier CL-600-2B19 (C-FIJA/JZA8030) on a flight from Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau Intl, QC (CYUL) to Philadelphia Intl, PA (KPHL) requested a return to CYUL at 2002Z, and requested emergency vehicles meet the aircraft. The aircraft did not declare an emergency, and landed safely at 2106Z. No impact on operations.
Update: TSB Report #A19Q0194: C-FIJA, a Jazz Aviation LP CL-600-2B19 (CRJ2) (JZA30), was on a regular IFR flight from Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau, QC (CYUL) to Philadelphia Intl., PA (KPHL) with 46 passengers and 3 crew members. After the wheels were retracted during the initial climb after takeoff, the message "Gear Disagree" appeared on the engine-indicating and crew-alerting system (EICAS). The crew placed the gear control in the extension position and confirmed that all wheels were down and locked. The crew then decided to go back to CYUL and land, and it conducted a holding pattern for approximately 45 minutes so that it could reduce the aircrafts weight to below the maximum landing limit. The aircraft landed without incident on Runway 24L with Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) services on alert. There were no injuries or damage to the aircraft.

June 3, 2018

Incident at MONTRÉAL / PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU INTL QC (CYUL)

UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. While taxiing after an uneventful landing, the Flight Crew was informed of smoke originating from the right main landing gear due to a flat tire. The Aircraft was stopped and Fire Emergency Rescue Services attended the aircraft. The passengers were transported by bus to the airport terminal. Maintenance found both right main wheel tires flat. The Main wheel assemblies and associated brake units were replaced and the aircraft released to service. Analysis of the flight data recorder confirmed that the aircraft did not sustain a hard landing nor did visual inspection of the main wheel tires reveal any abnormal damage that could have explained the flat tires. The Flight Crew did not notice anything abnormal except for a slight higher thrust required to taxi after exiting the runway.
TSB #A18Q0077: C-FZJA, a Jazz Aviation LP CL-600-2B19 (CRJ2) (JZA8827) was on a regular instrument flight rules (IFR) flight from Ronald Reagan Washington National, U.S. (KDCA) to Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau International, QC (CYUL) with 46 passengers and 3 crew members. While the aircraft was taxiing on the ground after landing, another plane reported noticing smoke coming from the right landing gear wheels as well as a blown tire. The crew brought JZA8827 to a complete stop in the de-icing area and it was met by aircraft rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) services. No fire was reported and the aircraft did not sustain any damage. The passengers were brought to the terminal by bus, and no one was injured.

Incident at In the vicinity of: MONTRÉAL / PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU INTL Q

UPDATE: TSB#A17Q0141: A Skywest CL-600-2B19 (CRJ2) flight SKW3126, and a Delta Airlines Boeing 717-200 (DAL1870) were both conducting an IFR flight from Chicago/O?Hare Intl, IL (KORD) to Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau Intl, QC (CYUL). While SKW3126 was on final approach for Runway 24R, at 3,000 ft. ASL, DAL1870 was extending the right-hand downwind leg on radar vectors for an instrument approach on Runway 24R. A loss of separation occurred when DAL1870 was instructed to turn onto heading 080°; the flight crew turned onto a heading of 180°, placing it on a conflicting track with SKW3126. The air traffic controller (ATC) intervened, the crew of DAL1870 turned left to avoid the aircraft on final approach and confirmed that it had traffic in sight. Separation was reduced to 1.5 nautical miles (NM), when 5 NM was required between the two aircraft at 3,000 ft. ASL.
Even though a Delta Air Lines Boeing 717 (DAL1870), from Atlanta (KATL), GA, to Montréal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau (CYUL), QC, received and read back the instruction to turn on a heading of 080, the aircraft was seen on a heading of 180. Impact on operations: Separation reduced to 1.5 NM and 3 100 ft between DAL1870 and a SkyWest Bombardier CL-600-2B19 (N955SW/SKW3126), from Chicago/O?Hare (KORD), IL, to Montréal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau (CYUL), QC.

UPDATE: TSB#A15A0070 - The Jazz Flight 8899 CRJ2 (registration C-GKEP) aeroplane was enroute from Goose Bay (CYYR) to Halifax (CYHZ). During climb to cruising altitude the crew observed an intermittent TCAS/FAIL message that extinguished and did not reappear. While in cruise, at FL320, ATC pointed out two aircraft as traffic that did not show up on TCAS. The crew determined that their TCAS was not operational, consulted the MEL, and observed in the MEL that RVSM flight without TCAS was prohibited. The crew advised ATC the TCAS was not operational and requested descent to FL280. The flight was continued at FL280 to destination.
Moncton High controller passed traffic at 1239Z between a Jazz Bombardier CL-600-2B19 (JZA8899) from Goose Bay, NL (CYYR) to Halifax, NS (CYHZ) at FL320 and a United Parcel Service McDonnell Douglas MD-11 (UPS213) from Louisville, KY (KSDF) to Cologne, Germany (EDDK) at FL330. JZA8899 also passed another aircraft, a Southern Air Boeing 777 200 (SOO275) from Cincinnati, OH (KCVG) to Bahrain (OBBI) at FL310. At 1244Z, JZA8899 advised they had lost traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS) and were no longer reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM) certified and requested FL280. The aircraft was coordinated with Gander and Montreal and given FL280. Pilot was queried on when they had lost the RVSM certification and indicated on departure during climb out.

Incident at VANCOUVER INTL BC (CYVR) (Conflict - potential, Conflict - loss of separation, Communication error, ATS operating irregularity)

UPDATE from TSB; A11P0140: CYVR Vancouver - JZA440 a CRJ2, was on a visual approach to 26R behind PAL106 a A343. The pilot of JZA440 switched to tower frequency before being instructed to. The controller tried to contact JZA440 to reduce speed as it was faster than the aircraft ahead. Before contact was established JZA440 entered the 6 nm wake turbulence protected area. The controller did not advise the JZA440 of possible wake turbulence once contact was made. The aircraft did not encounter wake turbulence.
UPDATE from Vancouver ACC: JZA440 was turned final for an ILS runway 26R approach 7nm in trail of PAL106. The controller attempted to issue speed reductions to JZA440 to maintain separation. However, JZA440 had changed to the tower frequency on his own. Separation behind PAL106 reduced to 4.5 nm at touchdown.
The Air Canada Jazz Canadair RJ200 operating flight JZA440, IFR Whitehorse (CYXY) to Vancouver (CYVR), was turned final for an Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach runway 26R 7nm in trail of the Philippine Air Lines Boeing 747-400 flight PAL106, IFR Manilla (RPLL) to CYVR. As separation was starting to reduce the controller gave JZA440 speed reductions to maintain separation. JZA440 had left the frequency on his own and separation behind PAL106 reduced to 4.5 nm at touchdown.
