Incident at Gull Lake, SASK


1997-10-31: While enroute Regina from High River, Alberta the pilot of a single engine PA28 noted high engine temperatures. He diverted to Gull Lake where a successful precautionary approach and landing was accomplished. There was no damage to the aircraft and no injuries to the pilot or his passenger. Update: The single engine Piper Cherokee 180 was in level cruising flight when the pilot noticed a loss of oil pressure indication on the oil pressure gauge. While the engine continued to operate normally the pilot diverted the aircraft to a nearby airfield. Once overhead the airfield and assured of landing, the pilot carried out a precautionary shutdown and carried out a landing without further incident. A visual inspection did not reveal any obvious indication as to the cause of the oil pressure loss. Should detailed maintenance examination reveal further information it will be submitted in a SDR.
