August 12, 2014

Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Update System Safety: The emergency locator transmitter (ELT) was set off while installing in the aircraft. The engineer did not realize immediately that the ELT had been activated. The ELT has a light that flashes when it is activated. Due to the aircraft being on the ramp outside it was not obvious that it had been activated. The ARTEX ELT manual states as a caution that it is possible to activate the ELT while connecting the plug to it. Normally the engineer checks the ELT for proper activation at the normal test times. Procedures are being placed to ensure that the ELT is checked at install also to avoid further issues.
Emergency locator transmitter (ELT) burst, approximately 1 minute duration heard. Source was a Canlink Aviation Diamond DA 20-C1 (C-FNIN) on the ground at Moncton Flight College, inadvertently turned ELT on.

August 18, 2011

Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

UPDATE TSB: flight training exercise when it was noticed that the exhaust gas temperature indication was rapidly decreasing. It was decided to return back to Fredericton airport. While inbound, exhaust gas odour was detected in the cockpit. It was also noted that the passive-style carbon monoxide detector had begun to turn colour. The instructor consulted the Pilot Operating Handbook, confirmed the cabin heat vent position closed, and opened both air vents and the windows for ventilation. The instructor then contacted Fredericton tower, briefed them on the problem and requested priority for landing. The flight landed without incident and with ARFF meeting the flight. The instructor and student's condition was checked and although some slight dizziness was noted directly after the flight, no symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning continued thereafter. Maintenance staff found and replaced a cracked number two exhaust riser pipe and replaced the contaminated carbon monoxide detector.
At 22:53Z, C-FNIN, Diamond DA 20 C1, reported inbound to Fredericton (CYFC) with a carbon monoxide indication, a possible gas leak, and requested priority.

UPDATE Maintenance & Manufacturing: The oil pressure indication was found to be reading slightly low, however discussions with the pilot indicated a slight loss of oil pressure after leveling off and a resulting increase in temperature, followed by a further decline in pressure, so the oil filter was inspected for metal. It was found to be clean and a new filter installed.The oil pressure regulator poppet valve was removed and inspected. No metal particles were found, or any evidence of particles being caught in the seat area, but the valve showed evidence of uneven seating, so a new poppet was installed.The oil pressure transmitter and gauge were replaced and the accuracy will be verified on a ground run.

C-FNXA was provided traffic information on C-FNIN as 1/2 mile final RWY27 for a full stop. The pilot of C-FNXA acknowledged the information. C-FNIN landed and was still on RWY27 when the FSS specialist noticed C-FNXA was on short final RWY27. The FSS specialist then requested that the pilot of C-FNXA conduct an overshoot; the pilot acknowledged the information. The pilot then requested a full stop landing and proceeded to land while C-FNIN was still occupying the runway.
Two Diamond aircraft were conducting left hand circuits on RWY27 at the Fredericton airport. CFNIN was preceeding CFNXA in the circuit.
