Incident at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan


1996-03-24: The aircraft was enroute from Winnipeg to Saskatoon with a crew of 5 and 78 passengers on board. The pilots advised ATC that due to an engine condition message they would be shutting down the number one engine on final approach. The pilots requested ERS to be standing by and advised Tower that they had approximately 4000 lbs of fuel on board. Further technical information will be provided by TSB. UPDATE: Maintenance personnel reset the fault warning and then ground checked the system as serviceable. A "Throttle Lever Failure" message is generated by the ECAM system when both resolvers for one of the throttle levers fail. In this instance, the warning system apparently generated an erroneous alert as there were no noted failures in the throttle lever system. This is the first "Throttle Lever Failure" fault that has been noted by the air carrier.
