Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC)

Summary

2005-01-31: GLR 914, a Beech 1900 with 4 people on board, was on a positioning flight from Grande Prairie to Calgary and 180 NM northwest of YYC when the crew declared an emergency due to engine problems. The crew was cleared direct YYC and landed without incident 45 minutes later at 1205Z with emergency vehicles on standby. TSB will contact the company.
2005-02-22: UPDATE TSB reported that the Beech 1900D, C-FCMN, had departed Grande Prairie on a positioning flight to Calgary, with 2 pilots and 2 AME's on board. The previous flight had diverted to Grande Prairie after the LH engine had lost oil pressure (CADORS 2005C0238). About 180 NM from Calgary, the crew again noticed the LH engine (Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67D) oil pressure decreasing and conducted a precautionary shutdown of the engine. An emergency was declared, with ATC clearing C-FCMN direct to destination where the aircraft landed without incident. Emergency vehicles were standing by. Maintenance found and replaced an oil seal that had been leaking into the air intake, and have not had a recurrence of the problem.
