Incident at Regina, SK

Summary

1999-07-05: C-GCRL, a Cessna 414, was 7 miles from Regina Airport after an IFR flight from Villeneuve when the pilot advised he had lost one alternator, then moments later he advised the second one had malfunctioned as well. There was an acrid electrical odour in the cockpit. CFR was placed on standby. C-GCRL landed safely at 0034Z. No other aircraft inconvenienced. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that the operator informed that a voltage regulator had burnt-out, causing the charging system failure and acrid odour in the cockpit. The operator's AME is still working on the a/c at this time and they will know later if there is a related alternator failure as well. The operator indicated that the AME will file a SDR when the work is completed.
