Incident at FORT SIMPSON NT (CYFS)

Summary

2003-03-06: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that company operations has the report of the crew for this flight. On approach to Fort Simpson when the crew selected flaps they were 'INOP'. They notified the CARS O/C there was a malfunction but did not specify. Within five or six minutes they discovered the flap circuit breaker (CB) was pulled. The breaker was re-set and the flaps operated normally and continue to do so. The crew assumes they inadvertently caught a piece of winter clothing on the CB and pulled it out when they moved and did not notice. This would be possible as it is located low on the side panel next to the pilot seat. There were no entries in the aircraft journey and the company has been counselled in this regard by the PMI. The company Director Of Maintenance and Quality Manager discussed this with the Chief Pilot and crew of the aircraft to ensure clarity in the future regarding log book entries. The Chief Pilot will advise all company flight crew.
2003-02-27: The pilot of AT 223, a Cessna 208, advised the CARS O/C at Fort Simpson of a 'slight malfunction' and orbited the airport until 0241Z. The pilot subsequently advised the problem had been resolved and AT 223 landed without incident at 0243Z.
