UPDATE TSB: A06A0003: ACA600, C-FFYT, an Air Canada Embraer ERJ 190, with 61 passengers and crew, on a flight from Toronto to St. John's, NL, was on approach for Runway 16 at St. John's. At approximately 1,000 feet above ground level, the aircraft encountered severe turbulence and airspeed fluctuations of plus and minus 20 knots. The flight crew conducted a missed approach and climbed to 5,000 feet, 2,000 feet above their cleared missed approach altitude. During the climb, the airspeed exceeded the maximum for the selected flap setting and the crew also noticed that a bleed air high-pressure warning light had illuminated. They requested and received a clearance to divert to Halifax, carried out the appropriate checklist for the bleed air pressure warning, and requested the airport ARFF be standing by in Halifax. The aircraft landed safely at Halifax without further incident. Initial inspection of the aircraft did not reveal any visible damage; maintenance personnel will complete a more thorough inspection before the aircraft is returned to service. The flight data from the FDR has been sent to the TSB Engineering Branch for analysis.
