UPDATE from TSB Report #A20Q0039: C-FENO, a Bombardier DHC-8-400 aircraft operated by WestJet Encore, was operating flight WEN3538 under instrument flight rules from Toronto/Lester B Pearson Intl, ON (CYYZ) to its destination of Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau Intl, QC (CYUL) with 21 passengers and 4 crew members on board. While the aircraft was descending towards CYUL, the "mistrim left wing low advisory light" light came on. The crew disconnected the autopilot and found that the flight controls were very stiff. They pulled the roll disconnection lever, and the commanders controls became free but those of the first officer remained stiff. The crew completed the associated Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) checklist and an emergency was declared. The aircraft landed without incident. There were no injuries.
UPDATE from Flight Operations: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. During the descent of WEN3538, the MISTRIM LEFT WING LOW advisory light illuminated. When the First Officer (FO) / Pilot Flying (PF) disconnected the autopilot, it was noticed that the controls were very stiff and the Captain confirmed the same. The roll disconnect handle was pulled, which freed the Captain’s side while completely freezing the FO’s side. Quick Reference Card (QRC)and Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) procedures were actioned and air traffic control (ATC) was advised with a MAYDAY call that the aircraft was experiencing flight control malfunction. The runway assigned was the Instrument Landing System (ILS) 06R due to it having a longer available landing distance than 06L. Flight attendants were briefed for a non-normal landing, and the passengers were also notified. The approach and landing were normal and, upon stopping on the runway, the Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) unit conducted an inspection to confirm that no abnormalities were present. The aircraft taxied to the gate for a normal shutdown.

March 12, 2020

Incident at DOLBEAU-ST-FÉLICIEN QC (CYDO) (Incursion - runway - vehicle, Communication error)

Aviation incident report #16575: The crew of an Exact Air Cessna 310R (C-FTNF), with a flight instructor and a pilot on board, was conducting a VFR training flight from Chicoutimi/St-Honoré, QC (CYRC) to Chicoutimi/St-Honoré, QC (CYRC). The aircraft had planned to make a complete stop at Dolbeau-St-Félicien, QC (CYDO) after it had conducted a simulated IFR approach on Runway 29 at CYDO. Two communications were made on the CYDO aerodrome traffic frequency (ATF) to transmit their position/intention for a complete stop (1st at 9 NM and 2nd at 3 NM from the runway threshold). The first aircraft left the circuit at that time, after it had taken off from Runway 29, and a second aircraft coordinated with C-FTNF, on simulated IFR approach, lined up on Runway 29 for takeoff. Approximately 1 NM from the runway threshold, the pilots heard a vehicle report that it was taxiing on the taxiway, short of Runway 29. The pilots then reported that they were on short final for Runway 29 for a complete stop. The vehicle continued to taxi without any indication of stopping, crossed the hold-short line, and drove onto Runway 29 up to the threshold. The pilots then conducted a go-around approximately 200 ft from the ground. Weather conditions were SKCLR +12SM. Strobe lights and ground traffic lights went on. The pilots indicated via radio that they were pulling up. The driver of the vehicle then reported having poor radio reception. Traffic had to take off on Runway 29 (a CQFA Beechcraft with an instructor on board), and it confirmed that communication transmitted by the crew of C-FTNF were perfectly comprehensible on the ATF. It also seemed that a tractor driven by an airport staff member was moving around at the airport without a radio system with it, so ground operators initiated a relay via an unknown other method to inform it of the movement of the aircraft in the CYDO zone. Impact: A go-around and a cancellation of the originally planned complete stop at CYDO.

March 19, 2020

Incident at ROUYN-NORANDA QC (CYUY)
