Incident at HALL BEACH NU (CYUX)

Summary

2003-04-15: The Bradley Air Services HS 748 registered C-GTLD, operating as First Air Flight FAB 802, was en route from Iqaluit to Hall Beach when the flight crew detected a smell of acrid smoke. Further investigation revealed the electric cockpit door latch to be the source of the smoke. The cockpit door was unlatched electrically and the smell of smoke did not recur. The flight crew elected to continue the flight to Hall Beach where an uneventful landing was carried out. A company 'NOTAM' has been issued to inform all flight crew to no longer use the electronic locking mechanism on the reinforced cockpit door on the HS 748. The door is to be locked using the deadbolt until further notice. The electric flight deck door locking system is currently under review by the manufacturer as well as Transport Canada.
