1999-04-19: The pilot of C-GXFB
, a commercially-registered Helio H295, departed Whitehorse on a VFR flight to Silver City and a short time later advised Tower that he was returning due to an oil pressure problem. The a/c landed safely at 2231Z with ERS on standby. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that the a/c was on its first flight of the season and after departure, the pilot noticed the oil pressure fluctuating, so he decided to return to the airport. An AMO inspected the engine and it is suspected that the oil pressure relief seal had a small piece of contamination stick on the seat for a short time, which caused the fluctuation. The engine has bee run up several times with no recurrence of the problem.
