Incident at Coquitlam BC

Aviation Incident Report #16598: Member of the public reported that a helicopter was flying over 3100 Dayanee Springs Blvd, Coquitlam, and that the radius over the rooftops was low. Additionally, the aircraft sounded its police sirens more than 4 times while conducting two circling events over the Westwood plateau and Dayanee Springs areas. Aircraft was black and dark green and resembled a military helicopter, and appeared to have the word "Sherriff" written on its sides. The actions of the aircraft prompted some citizens to call the local police, who were unaware of anything going on, and numerous people came out on their balconies to see what was happening due to the police sirens sounding from this helicopter. Given that the helicopter did not appear to belong to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) or local police, citizens were quite concerned as to who actually owns the helicopter and who was operating it in that fashion (i.e. flying low and sounding police sirens). A later research by Transport Canada officials at headquarters determined the aircraft to have been a Los Angeles County Sheriff Eurocopter AS 332L1 (N951LB) from Langley, BC (CYNJ) to Vancouver, BC (CYVR).
UPDATE: Aviation Incident Report: The Coquitlam, BC, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) reported a helicopter flying, for a second day in a row, low over Coquitlam, BC whilst using sirens such as police sirens. The helicopter has a Sheriff sign on it, black-dark green-light green, and also says "Los Angeles County" on side. The main concern is the use of police sirens. It is reported that there are Twitter feeds and video footage from private individuals. The RCMP also has footage.

Update TSB Report #A20P0057: C-FAFR, a Fairchild SA227-AC operated by Carson Air Ltd, was conducting a cargo flight from Vancouver Intl. (CYVR), BC, to Kelowna (CYLW), BC, with 2 flight crew members onboard. During descent into CYLW, the crew observed a hydraulic pressure annunciator light with a corresponding low pressure indication. The crew followed the emergency checklist, advised the CYLW tower of a hydraulic failure, and requested ARFF on standby. The crew lowered the landing gear manually and carried out a flapless landing without incident. There were no reported injuries and no damage to the aircraft. Maintenance found the right hand hydraulic pump return line was chaffed through at the hydraulic reservoir. The rigid return line was temporarily replaced with a flexible line as per the AMM and the hydraulic system was ground tested satisfactory.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. On approach into CYLW, C-FAFR experienced fluctuating hydraulic pressure, accompanied by both hydraulic warning lights and subsequent hydraulic failure. The crew completed the hydraulic failure checklist and completed a manual landing gear drop and flapless landing. On the ground, maintenance found hydraulic fluid dripping from the right-hand (R/H) engine cowl and landing gear doors, further inspection revealed a pinhole leak in a chaffed hydraulic line at the R/H engine firewall. It appeared that the line had chaffed against a clamp on an adjacent line, causing the leak. The damaged line was replaced, the hydraulic system was tested for function and the aircraft was returned to service. A Safety Management System (SMS) investigation was carried out, as there had been no previous failures of this part number (P/N) line in the fleet and the area has a general visual inspection every 300hrs under the Phase Inspection Program. The operator has published a bulletin for company ACA holders and will monitor the fleet for further failures of this type.
