Incident at Yellowknife, NT


1999-05-26: The pilot of C-GRJN, a single-engine four-seat Maule M-4, was doing circuits at Yellowknife when he reported smoke in the cockpit. The pilot landed and shut down on the runway, where the a/c was inspected by ERS. No fire was found, so the pilot then taxied to the apron without further problem. The two occupants were not injured and no other a/c were inconvenienced. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that on the downwind leg the pilot decided to extend to allow another aircraft to depart. He selected cabin heat on and a puff of smoke entered the cockpit, so he asked to land immediately. The aircraft has been inspected by an AME and the rocker box cover gaskets were found to be leaking oil onto the muffler assembly. The gaskets have been replaced and the aircraft returned to service.
