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

Summary

1997-05-13: The aircraft departed Prince Albert on a local training flight. Approximately 10 miles southeast of the airport the crew advised Air Radio that they had shut down and secured the starboard engine due to high engine temperatures and a loss of oil pressure. The aircraft returned and landed at Prince Albert without further incident. The oil screen was pulled by Company maintenance and a large amount of metal was found which indicates a bearing failure. The engine is being replaced and had approximately 740 hours since overhaul.
