Incident at EDMONTON INTL AB (CYEG)

Summary

2005-01-12: AR 377, a Piper Navajo, departed Edmonton International Airport for Hamburg and the pilot then advised ATC that he could not retract the gear. He requested to land at City Centre Airport and landed safely at 1549Z. The pilot did not request assistance and no other flights were inconvenienced.
2005-01-17: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that C-GZNB displayed the red in-transit light after the gear retraction cycle was completed. The pilot selected gear down at YXD and it functioned normally. Subsequent trouble-shooting revealed that the nose gear was not retracting into the uplock sufficiently to fully close the gear doors and extinguish the in-transit light. The nose gear actuator was replaced due to some external seal leakage and suspected internal leakage. Ground temperature was extremely cold and was a contributing factor. The landing gear was lubricated and the rigging checked. An aircraft test flight was satisfactory.
