, a Cessna 206, departed from Runway 13R at Whitehorse International Airport at 2359Z and shortly after takeoff, the pilot reported control problems with his a/c. The pilot stated that the nose of the a/c pitched up without control imput and he was having difficulty keeping the nose of the a/c down. ERS was called out and the pilot was cleared to land on any runway. The pilot was able to complete a circuit and C-FRKA
landed safely on Runway 13R a few minutes later. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that maintenance found that the trim chain had two stiff links which caused the chains to jump on the control wheel sprocket. The links were lubricated and freed. Also, a cotterpin on the left hand cable forward of the cable stop blocks appeared to be causing interference. The above defects were corrected and the trim ground-checked as servicable. The pilot/owner will check the system on the next flight.
