Incident at PRINCE ALBERT (GLASS FIELD) SK (CYPA)

Summary

1996-03-19: The pilot of a PA31, who was enroute Nipawin VFR from Prince Albert, reported that due to a loss of oil pressure in the number one engine, he had shut down and secured the left power plant and was returning to Prince Albert. An uneventful landing was accomplished. CFR was on standby. Update: Maintenance personnel inspected the aircraft after landing and determined that an oil line had ruptured, thus causing the loss of pressure. The rupture occurred near the centre of the line and away from any fittings. The line appeared to have been damaged through abrasion against some unknown source.
