Incident at ST. THERESA POINT MB (CYST) (Aerodrome - runway or taxiway surface condition)


2003-04-03: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the a/c had frozen brakes on taxing for departure at St. Theresa Point due to thawing ground conditions. The a/c brakes subsequently released on their own and the flight was able to proceed. An AMO inspected the brakes and tires later that day in St. Andrews and found them to be satisfactory. This is a normal type of occurrence during this time of year due to soft/wet/muddy conditions on gravel strips as the snows melt away.
2003-03-31: After taxing to position for departure at St. Theresa Point, the pilot of C-GBDN, a Piper Navajo, advised his brakes were locked and he was unable to move. Six minutes later, he advised that the brakes had unlocked and he was able to taxi clear of the runway.
