Incident at Goose Bay


1999-02-26: CFFZB C172 on a local training flight experienced a loss of power. Aircraft returned to the airport and landed safely. TSB case closed. Update: The same aircraft had experienced a total power loss on January 12/99 which required the crew to land on a frozen lake. Maintenance found that the fuel filter was blocked by ice crystals which resulted in fuel starvation. Since this occurrence, the operator began using an anti-icing agent in the fuel. However, when the aircraft was refueled on February 17/99 there was no additive used. The operator will train all their pilots on the procedures for adding the proper anti-icing agent in accordance with Teledyne continental. Service Bulletin No. M87-12 Revision 1. TSB Notification # A99A0026
