The aircraft auto-throttle system compensated for the performance change and enabled the crew to regain the glide slope. The crew then observed a GEN 4 caution light for the No. 4 engine (Avco Lycoming, LF-507-1F) and noted the engine continued to produce power based on the associated gas producer speed (N1) indication. The crew proceeded with the landing and touched down without further incident. Once on the ground, the crew found the No.4 engine was now indicating a decrease in N1 with an exceedance in the exhaust gas temperature (EGT) limitation. The No. 4 engine was shut down on the taxiway, with no additional indications or warnings. There were no reported injuries or damage to the aircraft. Following arrival, the crew inspected the engine and no damage or leakage was found. When weather permits, the aircraft will be ferried on the 3 remaining engines to CYYC for completion of the required maintenance actions.

Incident at 30NM E VANCOUVER INTL BC (CYVR)

A Pacific Coastal Airlines Beech 1900D (C-GPCR/PCO453) from Vancouver, BC (CYVR) to Trail, BC (CAD4), climbing out of FL200 for FL210, reported an engine failure. The aircraft returned to CYVR, landing safely at 1905Z. No emergency declared.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. The right engine indicated an excessively high oil temperature on climb-out from Vancouver, BC (CYVR), prompting the crew to perform a precautionary engine shutdown, as per the Quick Reference Checklist. The aircraft returned to CYVR and maintenance identified a faulty oil cooler. The oil cooler was replaced, a test flight was completed and the aircraft was returned to service. Incident has been entered into the organizations Safety Management System (SMS) program for further investigations and the oil cooler has been sent out for evaluation. Investigation to be completed by the company via approved SMS program. Principal inspectors will follow-up with SMS investigation.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A21P0138: C-GPCR, a Pacific Coastal Airlines Textron (Beech) 1900D, was conducting flight PCO453 from Vancouver Intl (CYVR), BC to Trail (CAD4), BC with 2 flight crew members and 19 passengers on board. When climbing through 17 000 feet above sea level, the crew observed the right engine oil temperature was high, approximately 90° C. The right engine (PT6A-67D (S/N: PCE-PS0584) oil temperature continued to rise rapidly despite the crews efforts to cool it by reducing power and levelling off. The crew shutdown the right engine as a precaution. They declared an emergency (MAYDAY) and requested a return to CYVR. The aircraft landed without further incident. Company maintenance discovered that the right engine oil cooler had some bent fins and some small rocks embedded therein. The overheated oil was the result. The oil cooler was removed and a new one installed. A successful test flight was completed and the aircraft was returned to service.

The power was reduced on the affected engine, and the warning light extinguished. The crew conducted a successful fire warning test to confirm integrity of the system and elected to return to CYVR. The flight crew completed an uneventful landing and taxied to the apron. After the aircraft was parked and the engines shut down, the crew were advised by maintenance that there was smoke coming from the wheel well area and were instructed to discharge fire bottle. ARFF vehicles were requested and attended the aircraft to ensure there was no fire. On inspection, it was determined that a clamp associated with the number one engine exhaust duct had failed, allowing hot exhaust gases to be directed at the fire sensors. The flight was cancelled, the clamp was replaced, and the aircraft was returned to service.

A Jazz de Havilland DHC-8-402 (C-GGOY/JZA8399) from Vancouver, BC (CYVR) to Sandspit, BC (CYZP) declared a "PAN PAN" during the en route climb due to an engine failure. Following a series of system checks, the aircraft elected to return to CYVR, where they landed without further incident at 1714Z.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. During climb, the No. 2 Engine shut down. The Flight Crew used the alternate system to feather the propeller, declared a "PAN PAN", and conducted an Air Turn Back. The aircraft landed safely. The No. 2 Engine was replaced by maintenance and the aircraft was returned to service. The engine has been sent to a repair facility for further investigation and repairs. Service Difficulty Report (SDR) no. 20211216010 has been submitted into the Continuing Airworthiness Web Information System (CAWIS). The Principal Maintenance Inspector (PMI) will follow-up further as part of the SDR process.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A21P0136: C-GGOY, a Jazz Aviation de Havilland DHC-8-402, was conducting flight JZA8399 from Vancouver Intl, BC (CYVR) to Sandspit, BC (CYZP) with 4 crew and 26 passengers on board. While climbing through approximately 12 000 feet above sea level with the autopilot engaged, the flight crew heard a noise from the right side of the aircraft, followed by a sudden and significant yaw and roll to the right. The right engine was indicating zero torque. The propeller did not feather and was indicating approximately 700 RPM. The flight crew subsequently selected the “Alt Feather” switch and the propeller then feathered. The flight crew declared PAN PAN and returned to CYVR. The aircraft landed without further incident. 1 cabin crew member experienced a minor injury when they fell against an emergency exit in the aircrafts aft galley during the engine failure event. Subsequent maintenance actions by the air operator noted the propeller and low-pressure impeller rotated freely, but the reduction gear box could not rotate. The engine, a PW150A (S/N FA0878), was replaced and the aircraft was returned to service.
