Incident at BROOKS REGIONAL AB (CYBP)

Summary

2003-08-12: Edmonton FIC received a call from the pilot of C-GRHO, a Cessna 150, who indicated that he had to make a precautionary landing on a highway 35 NM northeast of Brooks, AB due to an electrical fire. The pilot landed safely on the highway and advised that the aircraft was clear of the highway in a farm yard.
2003-09-22: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the pilot reported that the volt meter was pegged at over 30 volts more than an hour before smoke and sparks started. The symptoms stopped as soon as the master switch was turned off. The damage found upon inspection was charred wiring, a burnt out voltage sensor and a burnt up overvoltage light. The overvoltage was caused by a failed voltage regulator, however the damage might have been avoided if the pilot had turned off the master switch as soon as the overvoltage was detected. The AME is going to submit an SDR.
