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

At 1033Z, a Jazz de Havilland DHC-8-402 (JZA8701) from Quebec/Jean Lesage, QC (CYQB) to Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau, QC (CYUL) initiated a missed approach for Runway 06R due to an indication of a landing gear problem. At 1104Z, JZA8701 declared a "PAN PAN" and emergency services were deployed. The aircraft landed safely at 1122Z and left the runway at 1203Z. No impact on operations.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A21Q0018: C-GGOY, a Dash 8-402 operated by Jazz Aviation under the callsign JZA8701, was on an instrument flight rules flight from Quebec/Jean Lesage, QC (CYQB) to Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau, QC (CYUL) with 3 crew members and 34 passengers on board. While the aircraft was on final approach for Runway 06R at CYUL, the "Left Gear Unsafe" light illuminated when the landing gear was selected for the extended position. The crew ascended and an emergency (PAN PAN) was declared. The Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) checklist was completed and the light remained on. The aircraft touched down on Runway 06R safely and the aircraft came to a stop. The landing gear was secured and the aircraft was towed to the boarding gate.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. During approach, the flight crew received a "left" red Main Landing Gear (MLG) unsafe warning indication. The Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) was reviewed and an alternate gear extension was performed, with the same result. The alternate gear extension verification light was also indicating an unsafe condition. An emergency was declared. After burning off excess fuel and repositioning passengers in the cabin, the aircraft landed without further incident, stopping on the runway. Maintenance confirmed that the left MLG was not in a locked position. The gear was physically moved to a locked position and secured with a ground lock safety pin. The aircraft taxied to its assigned gate, where passengers deplaned. Following troubleshooting, the left MLG downlock actuator was replaced and the system tested serviceable. The aircraft was returned to service following a successful test flight. Service Difficulty Report No. 20210414003 was submitted
