Incident at Slave Lake, AB


1999-09-20: N17NW, a Cessna 414 operating as Photo 17, was doing photo work out of Slave Lake on an IFR flight plan when the pilot reported shutting down the left engine due to a "coolant" problem. The pilot did not declare an emergency and returned to land without further difficulty. The same a/c was again operating in the Slave Lake area the next day, September 19 at 1825Z, and the pilot reported the same problem. He returned to land uneventfully at Slave Lake. Later that day at 2309Z, N17NW was enroute from Slave Lake to Calgary and 30 miles south of Rocky Mountain House when the pilot advised ATC that he was shutting down the left engine. The a/c landed safely at Calgary at 2335Z. The reason for the succession of engine problems with this a/c is not known. TSB Edmonton was advised and more information may be available. (NavCanada had filed three separate occurrence reports for this a/c.) OPI - System Safety
