Incident at Calgary, AB (Engine - malfunction, Conflict - potential)


1999-10-01: C-GJEF, a Piper Chieftain, landed on Runway 25 at Calgary International Airport with N64EW, a Piper Cherokee Six one mile behind. The pilot of C-GJEF was instructed to cross Runway 16 and exit beyond. Because the Tower considered that C-GJEF would be clear of the runway, the pilot of N64EW was given clearance to land. Very shortly after, both engines of C-GJEF quit and the a/c stopped on the runway as N64EW was touching down. The reason for the engine failures is not known. NavCanada has investigated this occurrence and will not be convening a Fact-Finding Board. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing (Change in registration of aircraft) UPDATE M. & M. reported that the pilot of C-GJEF indicated that only one of the engines quit during roll-out. When he selected the throttles to idle, one engine quit because the idle setting was too low. He stopped on the runway to re-start when the Tower had expected him to vacate the runway because of the following traffic. An SDR was requested, and the idle had not been checked since the last annual Inspection which was approximately 10 months prior. An SDR is not mandated as the a/c is privately registered
