Incident at HALIFAX / STANFIELD INTL NS (CYHZ)

Summary

2005-10-19: CME112, Piper PA31350 enroute from Charlottetown (CYYG) to Halifax (CYHZ) called Tower on cell phone and advised of a communication failure. Descent to YHZ VOR . At 1224Z pilot called again to say he was VFR and had traffic ahead in sight. No assistance required. Landed safely Runway 23 at 1230Z. Pilot called after landing and confirmed same aircraft that had communication failure on October 16. Nil TSB
2005-10-25: Maintenance & Manufacturing Update: Every thing worked normally until the aircraft was on its way back and once again the radios started to fade out and then faded out completely. The avionics shop said there might be a problem with the audio panel and changed the audio panel. At this time they also found some errors in the way the headsets were wired to the audio panel. The intercom system is an integral part of the audio panel, which would explain the com and intercom problems combined. According to the avionics shop there was nothing wrong with the radios. The aircraft has flown more than two hours since the change with no reported problems. The Audio panel is a Garmin 340 p/n 011-00401-10. The unit was brand new when installed on the aircraft in July.
