March 13, 2003

Incident at HALIFAX / STANFIELD INTL NS (CYHZ) (Conflict - potential, Conflict - loss of separation, ATS operating irregularity)

A Bell 412 was doing an IFR approach to Runway 24 in Halifax with an overshoot clearance. A Dash8 was departing Halifax for Boston and was taxied to position on Runway 24 and cleared for take off. The departure was slow and a loss of separation occurred with the Arriving and overshooting Helicopter. TSB - More to Follow
TSB Update - 2003/03/25 - A03A0033:A Canadian military Bell 412 (CH-146 Griffon), WOLF26A, was en route from Shearwater to Halifax, and was on an IFR approach to runway 24 at Halifax. JZA8855, an Air Canada De Havilland DHC-8 had taxied to position on runway 24 for a flight from Halifax to Boston and was subsequently cleared for take off. The take off roll was slower than expected by ATC personnel and separation between the aircraft eroded to approximately one and one half miles laterally and less than 1000 feet vertically in an area where 3 miles lateral or 1000 feet vertical are required. Nav Canada will be convening an operational safety investigation into this incident.

July 25, 2002

Incident at HALIFAX / STANFIELD INTL NS (CYHZ)

Update - On climb out of YHZ the Captain called a complete Green Hydraulic system failure. The aircraft returned and ERS was called out. He did report he would also like MTC to meet him due to no nose wheel steering and they needed to be towed. The PAX were briefed and other than aggravation due to the original hour delay everyone was fine. The cause of the hydraulic fluid loss was a leak in the #3 EDP (Engine Driven Hydraulic Pump). The leak was through a flange in the pump itself. The hydraulic pump was replaced. The hydraulic system was replenished & bled. System functions were carried out (including landing gear swings), & all tested Serviceable. The aircraft was returned to Service. The hydraulic pump is now being sent out to the repair facility for teardown/analysis & repair as required. Captains Report : Shortly after rotation the crew experienced an MWS single chime (no hydraulic hook up or overhead warning)F/O advised that hydraulic quantity on the green system was fluctuating. Over the next few minutes the system was watched the quantity bleed off to empty. All appropriate checklists were actioned, A+C company flight attendants and passengers were advised. No further problems were encountered and the landing and tow-in from Delta taxiway was uneventful.
A BAE146 enroute from Halifax to Boston returned to Halifax due to a hydraulic problem. There was a Hydraulic pump failure with subsequent loss of Hydraulic fluid. The aircraft landed on Runway 06 at 1538Z. No problems were encountered and there was no effect on other aircraft operations.
