Incident at RED DEER REGIONAL AB (CYQF)

Summary

2001-02-05: UPDATE TSB reported that while returning from a local training flight in the Red Deer area, the student pilot of the Cessna 172P reported about two miles from the field, that he was making a forced landing in a farm field, due to an Avco Lycoming O-320-D2J engine problem. The aircraft was landed safely with no damage to the aircraft or injuries to the pilot. A post-landing inspection did not reveal any discrepancies with the engine, however the right fuel tank was found to be empty. The left tank contained less than one-quarter of a tank. When the engine initially began to run rough, the pilot selected the other fuel tanks, however there was not enough time for the fuel to drain from the tank to the carburettor prior to the pilot selecting the fuel off for the forced landing.
2001-02-01: Returning from a night training flight at Red Deer, the pilot of C-GJSK, a Cessna 172, reported about 2 NM short of the airport that he was making a forced landing in a field due to engine problems. The pilot landed safely with no injuries and no damage to the airplane. Skywings Aviation was advised and picked up the pilot. The aircraft is being left in the field overnight and will be flown out in the morning. TSB has been advised. No impact on the airport operations. TSB will be discussing the incident with the operator.
