Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2005-04-12: Maintenance and Maunfacturing Update 2005A0232: Maintenance was advised that when selecting the gear down, crew noted a gear unsafe light / warning horn on and nose gear green light not illuminated. Crew reported that they replaced the nose gear down light, cycled the gear a number of times & with all lights in the green, landed the aircraft safely. Maintenance conducted an inspection of the landing gear system & found no discrepancies other than a ""tight"" rod end in the nose gear system. The rod end was lubricated, the gear swung a number of times and the problem was not repeated. Aircraft released to service with no problems reported since.
2005-04-11: CGMFC, on a local training flight, reported his nose gear stuck in the retracted position. Aircraft held for 10-15 minutes and managed to extend the nose gear. Firehall in standby positions. Aircraft landed safely at 0032z. TSB Case Closed
2005-04-15: A05A0040. TSB Update April 15, 2005. C-GMFC, a Piper Seneca on a local VFR training flight, reported that the nose gear was stuck in the retracted postion. The nose gear eventually extended after a number of re-cycle attempts, and the aircraft landed uneventfully with ERS in standby position. Maintenance was not able to duplicate the fault; however, it was noticed that the nose gear was not cycling smoothly. The nose gear rod ends were lubricated, which improved the cycling action, and the aircraft was returned to service.
