Incident at THOMPSON MB (CYTH)

Summary

2003-01-14: SGK 301, a Cessna 207, was inbound to Thompson on a flight from Oxford House when the pilot reported a very rough running engine. Thompson FSS inquired if the pilot was declaring an emergency and the pilot responded 'negative'. Thompson AFF and city fire department was put on standby. The pilot reported that the engine at one point quit and he was able to re-start it, but there was a considerable vibration and it would only operate at full power. The aircraft landed safely at 2330Z. TSB has been in touch with the company.
2003-01-16: UPDATE M. & M. was advised that an inspection after landing revealed that the left fuel tank was empty. It is believed that the fuel selector allowed fuel to be drawn from the left tank regardless of selector position. The aircraft remains in maintenance awaiting a replacement fuel selector. The Quantity system for the left hand tank will be checked for accuracy.
2003-01-15: UPDATE TSB reported that Skyward 301 was en route from Oxford House to Thompson. As it was approaching the Thompson area, the aircraft's engine (Continental IO-520) began to run rough and vibrate, and at one point lost all power. The pilot re-started the engine and landed safely with ERS standing by. Maintenance found a faulty fuel selector, which was believed to have allowed air into the fuel system during the flight.
