Incident at Calgary, AB


1999-02-02: The pilot of C-FMFB, a Piper Seneca, was doing his initial PPC ride with a Transport Canada inspector north of Calgary, and after completing a series of stall recoveries, one engine began to run a little rough. The pilot elected to return to Calgary and requested priority from ATC. The a/c landed without further incident on Runway 25 at 1820Z. Thirteen other a/c were delayed during the occurrence. The reason for the engine roughness has not been determined by the operator. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that both engines had had new fuel pumps installed and the right engine pump required some adjustment to increase fuel flow. The problem only occurred above 8,000 feet ASL and after a successful test run, the a/c was released to service.
