The Knighthawk Air Express Dassault Falcon DA-20 aircraft (C-GRSD) was departing on an IFR cargo flight from Wilmington (Airborne Air) Airport, OH (U.S.A.) (KILN) to Winnipeg International Airport (CYWG). The flight crew carried out a normal anti-ice departure and, upon gear retraction, the airframe anti-ice was selected on. The flight crew noted that the #1 EGT was 620ยบ, N1 was 90% and N2 was 90% with the power lever full forward (these numbers are well below what would be considered normal with the anti-ice selected on). The climb was maintained until 6,000 feet, at which point the #1 engine RPM rolled back and the engine flamed out. The flight crew completed the engine failure checklist and attempted a re-light, however, this was unsuccessful. The engine was secured and an emergency was declared. The flight crew were provided with vectors back to KILN and landed on runway 04L. The approach, landing and taxi were completed without further incident. Maintenance staff discovered some fuel in the #1 engine cowling that appeared to be leaking from the Fuel Control Unit (FCU). The FCU was changed and the aircraft was returned to service.
