Incident at RANKIN INLET NU (CYRT) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


2003-02-06: The pilot of SGK 300, a Cessna 402, was departing Rankin Inlet for Thompson when he rejected the takeoff because of a rough engine. The aircraft had to be towed to the ramp and as a result, the runway was closed for about 10 minutes. No impact on operations reported. TSB will contact the company.
2003-02-19: Maintenance and Manufacturing advised that the pilot of the Cessna C402 rejected takeoff due to a rough running right engine. Maintenance trouble shooting identified that both magnetos had failed internally. The aircraft had spent the night outside in extremely cold weather. It is suspected that this was a contributing factor in this failure. The mags were replaced and a satisfactory runup was carried out. The aircraft was released to service. SDR and component tear down reports are in process at this time.
2003-02-11: The Manager of Tranportation Programs at Rankin Inlet advised that the base manager at Rankin Inlet for Skyward Aviation towed the aircraft off the runway. While he has an AVOP it is not valid for Rankin Inlet. He is getting licensed for this airport and understands the importance of being current for each airport he is working at.
2003-02-10: TSB reported that Flight SGK300, a Cessna 402 aircraft, registration GSRL aborted the take-off due to a rough running right engine (Continental TSIO-520). The aircraft had to be towed to the ramp for inspection by maintenance personnel. The operator will provide information from the maintenance action.
