January 5, 2022

Incident at TERRACE BC (CYXT)

A Carson Air Ltd. Cessna 560 Encore (C-GRFC/CRN888) on a MEDEVAC flight from Terrace, BC (CYXT) to Vancouver, BC (CYVR) was unable to retract its landing gear after departure. CRN888 returned to CYXT and landed without issue. No operational impact.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. A Carson Air Ltd. Cessna 560 Encore (C-GRFC) was unable to retract the landing gear following take-off from Terrace, BC (CYXT). The crew elected to return to CYXT and landed without incident. Due to the extreme cold weather conditions, maintenance suspected a frozen squat switch. Further investigation revealed that the scraper seal on the left-hand (L/H) oleo strut had been damaged, preventing the strut from fully extending and allowing landing gear retraction. It is likely that, during a previous flight, ice had formed on the oleo strut and damaged the scraper seal when it was compressed on landing. The seal was replaced and the aircraft was returned to service.

Incident at 60NM NE VANCOUVER INTL BC (CYVR)

A Central Mountain Air Ltd. de Havilland DHC-8-102 (C-FVRJ/GLR8292) from Kamloops, BC (CYKA) to Vancouver, BC (CYVR) declared an emergency due to a nose gear indication issue. The Aviation Operations Centre (AVOPS) and the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Victoria were advised. The aircraft landed safely, no operational impact.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. Troubleshooting was carried out and found the nose oleo to be flat. This did not let the gear go fully up, thus keeping the nose gear open. Nose oleo hydraulic fluid was replaced and serviced, as per maintenance manual (MM) 12-10-32. A gear swing was carried out 3 times, and no further fault was found. See task card 221762-0008. Service Difficulty Report (SDR) #20220112021 was submitted.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A22P0001: C-FVRJ, a de Havilland Aircraft DHC-8-102 operated by Central Mountain Air, was conducting flight GLR8292 from Kamloops, BC (CYKA) to Vancouver Intl, BC (CYVR) with 3 crew members on board. After the landing gear was retracted on departure from CYKA, the flight crew received a landing gear unsafe advisory indication. The landing gear was subsequently lowered and the nose gear down-and-locked indication did not illuminate. The flight crew declared an emergency and anticipated having to extend the landing gear manually prior to landing at CYVR. The crew cycled the landing gear a second time and, on that extension, the indication showed that all the gear was down and locked. The flight landed without further incident. Subsequent maintenance actions found the nose landing gear shock strut assembly to be compressed. This prevented the landing gear from fully retracting and kept the nose gear doors from properly closing. Hydraulic fluid was added to the shock strut as per the aircrafts maintenance manual and landing gear test swings were successfully conducted. The aircraft was returned to service.
