Incident at RED DEER REGIONAL AB (CYQF)

Summary

2005-01-18: UPDATE Maintenance and manufacturing reported that upon gear down selection, the landing gear was heard to extend, however, there were no landing gear indication lights. Neither the 'in transit' lights nor the gear down and locked lights illuminated. In addition, the CAWS display captions that should have been on, were not illuminated. The pilot elected to terminate the approach in order to assess the situation. Upon review, the pilot discovered that the Circuit Breaker for the 'advisory lights' was 'popped'. He re-set the CB, it remained in and all the lighting serviced by that CB returned to normal. The pilot then selected gear down and all gear indications and functions operated normally. There had been no previous problems with this CB or its associated lights. As a precaution the CB was being replaced.
2014-11-05: Flight Number CMM 353 changed to ASP353.
2005-01-17: While on final to Runway 34 at Red Deer, the pilot of C-FASR, a Pilatus PC-12, reported an unsafe gear indication. He broke off the approach, did a circuit and cycled the gear. The pilot then reported a normal gear down indication and the flight landed without incident at 1041Z.
