Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2001-08-09: The aircraft was en route to Sydney when, while on descent through 15,000, the crew heard a popping sound.Crew observed the cabin altitude increasing rapidly and the pressure differential decreasing. Just before the cabin altitude reached 10,000, the crew donned their 02 masks as precaution. The cabin altitude reached 13,000. The aircraft was in VMC. The crew contacted ATS and advised them they were experiencing a pressurization problem; the crew did not declare an emergency but requested diversion at 10,000 to Moncton. While at 10,000, the cabin altitude recovered with a differential of 1.8 PSI. The aircraft lost cabin pressurization again when the throttles were reduced from 85 to 70% NI for the descent into Moncton. The cabin altitude subsequently went up to 9,000 feet during the descent. The aircraft landed in Moncton with no further problem. It was determined that the squat switch (p/n 41 EN49-6) was stuck. The switch was unstuck and the aircraft returned to Ottawa at 10000 as per MEL. Maintenance replaced the squat switch and the aircraft was returned to service.
