Incident at RED DEER REGIONAL AB (CYQF)

Summary

2001-02-19: On a training flight near Red Deer, the pilot of C-GNSX, a Cessna 152, reported he was having engine problems and landed in a field. Another aircraft (C-GGYB) diverted to the area and relayed back to FSS that the aircraft had landed safely with no injuries or apparent damage. The company was advised and will send out maintenance staff to check the aircraft.
2001-02-23: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the company CFI advised that the pilot was practicing forced approaches at the time of the incident. The engine began to run rough and carb heat was applied. The engine improved and then ran rough again. The carb heat was removed and the engine ran smoother, but at next power application, it quit and would not re-start. The aircraft had fuel on board, 1/3 tank L/H side and 1/4 tank R/H side. No water was present when the drains were activated. The aircraft was moved to another field, ground run serviceable and flown back to Red Deer without further incident. The only damage found was the oleo had deflated on forced landing. Carb ice is the suspected cause, with the carb heat not being applied long enough to clear the ice. The aircraft is in the process of being further inspected at the moment for other possible causes (nothing found yet), and there was no recent history of related defects.
