Incident at WHITEHORSE/ ERIK NIELSEN INTL (CYXY)

Summary

2005-01-13: JZA 7075, a Canadair RJ, departed Whitehorse for Vancouver and the crew could not get the gear to retract after takeoff. Subsequently, they decided to divert Prince Rupert.
2005-01-14: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the a/c was being re-positioned to Vancouver with no passengers, just the 3 crew, an AME and three dead-heading company employees. The aircraft was initially started following the limitations and conditions listed in the AFM under ATA02-05-2, Part B for Cold Soak Operations. The flight was done due to apparent cold start restrictions from the manufacturer. (Engine starting not recommended if cold-soaked below minus 30 Celsius per the AFM). Jazz apparently obtained a conditional release from the manufacturer to allow them to start and reposition to YVR for this flight. The flight crew apparently accomplished all conditional starting requirements per the AFM prior to initiating the flight. The flight was a positioning flight at time of departure due to the cold weather requirements, no Ferry Permit was required, and aircraft did not have a mechanical deficiency until after takeoff. If the aircraft had come direct to YVR, there would have been no requirement for a ferry flight permit. Then the flight took off and they could not retract gear due to a low nose oleo (N2 suspected). The diversion to Prince Rupert was a change to the positioning flight plan after departure, due to increased fuel consumption with the gear down [not known until after departure from Whitehorse]. There were no fuel restrictions related to the positioning flight requirements from Bombardier.
