Incident at Moncton NB


2000-03-02: ANU302 SW3 enroute Moncton to Charlottetown declared Emergency due to Trim Problem. Pilot cancelled IFR and returned to circuit for landing. Prior to landing, pilot stated that problem solved and continued on to Charlottetown landing at 1252. No other aircraft involved TSB case closed. More to follow. Update: The Metroliner Aircraft employs a Horizontal Stablizer Trim system which is electrically activated by a toggle switch located on either the Captain or first Officers Control yoke. However, authority to move the Stablizer Trim is only available to one position at a time by way of a selector switch located on the center pedestal. Transferring command is accomplished by moving the selector switch left or right - Left for the Captain or Right for the first Officer. The first officer was the pilot flying during the take off in Moncton. The Trim Selector switch was set to the Captain's side. Consequently, when the first officer attempted to change the trim position during climb there was no effect. TSB file # A00A0031
