Incident at CAMBRIDGE BAY NU (Water) (CJD7)
2003-07-23: Maintenance and Manufacturing advised that Company Maintenance inspected and cleaned the entire fuel system and found no faults. Extensive ground runs were carried out and no faults were detected in the operation of the powerplant. A maintenance check flight was performed and the aircraft operated per the TCDS requirements; the aircraft has been returned to service. The company feels it may have been the flight crew with a fuel selector selected to the wrong fuel tank and shortly after takeoff the engine failed due to fuel exhaustion.
2003-07-17: 0122UTC, the pilot of C-FGYN, a DHC-2 Beaver, called Cambridge Bay CARS to advise taxiing for departure at the waterbase. At 0127UTC, he called to request assistance from his company to de-plane the 4 passengers. Adlair Aviation later advised CARS that C-GFYN had an engine failure at 200 feet following takeoff. The pilot was forced to land on the ice. There were no injuries and the aircraft was not damaged. The cause of the engine failure is not known.
