July 9, 2003

Incident at LETHBRIDGE AB (CYQL)

C-GTXG, a Piper PA-34 Seneca, was on approach at Lethbridge when the pilot advised the FSS the he had not obtained a safe gear down indiction and advised that he would conduct a low pass prior to landing. FSS advised the pilot that the gear appeared normal. C-GTXG landed without incident at 2253Z.
UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the 'gear down and locked' lights did not seem to be illuminated on the approach into Lethbridge. It was late in the day, and the sun was shining onto the instrument panel. The Seneca also dims the gear lights when the nav lights are on and it appeared that the gear lights were not illuminated. The pilot did the inspection pass, the FSS could see nothing wrong, and the pilot cycled the gear with all the right sights and sounds but no noticable change in the lights, so he opted to try the landing, which was normal. Later, in the dark of the hangar, the lights came on with the master switch, as they should, and they functioned normally ever since. No repair was done because nothing could be found to be wrong.

September 1, 1997

Incident at Calgary, AB

C-GTXG was on a local IFR training flight with 2 people on board, when the pilot overshot Runway 16 because of an unsafe gear indication. The pilot declared an emergency and ERS responded, as the a/c came back around to land safely on Runway 10 at 0034Z. Maintenance determined that a small spring clip that is part of the microswitch for the gear indication system was missing, and this clip allows the " three green" indicators to illuminate. The gear was in fact down and locked, but the pilot saw that the nose gear indicator was not illuminated, so he believed that the nose wheel might have been unsafe. The a/c is up on jacks and the gear operates normally, and maintenance is replacing the spring clip.
