Incident at Saskatoon, SK


1999-05-28: C-GKNL, a Piper Navajo, was on a local VFR flight at Saskatoon with one person on board, and when the pilot was returning to the airport, he advised of an unsafe gear indication. He flew by the Tower and it appeared that the gear was not down, so the pilot elected to circle to the south of the airport where he was able to get the gear to extend. The a/c landed without incident at 2032Z with ERS on standby. No other a/c were inconvenienced. The nature of the gear problem is not known. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that the nose gear micoswitch was out of adjustment. Switch was re-set and gear swing completed on ground. Aircraft returned to sevice.
