Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Summary

2005-01-10: TSB Update A05A0001: The Cessna 550, registration C-FLZA, was in the circuit at Moncton and reported an unsafe, left main landing gear indication. Forty three minutes later, the crew advised that the landing gear was in the down and locked position, that they were declaring an emergency and requested trucks on standby. The aircraft landed without further incident. Maintenance determined that the internal micro switch inside the left main landing gear side brace had failed.
2005-01-10: Update: A gear swing was accomplished after the incident with no fault found. Although the fault could not be duplicated, the operator is replacing the L/H gear actuator and sending it to the O/H shop for investigation because the down lock microswitch assembly is integral to the actuator. The indicator portion of the switch is thought to be intermittent.
2005-01-06: The Transport Canada Cessna Citation (TGO859) was in the circuit at Moncton when the pilot reported an unsafe, left, main landing gear indication. At 2318Z the pilot advised that the landing gear was in locked position but he was declaring an emergency and requested trucks on stand-by. The aircraft landed safely at 2332Z.
