Incident at WINNIPEG / JAMES ARMSTRONG RICHARDSON INTL MB (CYWG)

Summary

2003-04-25: UPDATE TSB reported that the Piper Navajo was on the takeoff run at Winnipeg when the pilot observed a power loss on the left engine (Lycoming TIO-540), rejected the takeoff, and shut down the engine. Company maintenance determined that the turbocharger seal had failed, causing the power loss and allowing oil to leak into the exhaust system. The turbocharger was replaced and the aircraft has been returned to service. The company intends to file an SDR with TC.
