Incident at Bridgetown


2005-02-18: The Sunwest Home Aviation Lear 45, registration C-GVVZ, departed Bridgetown/Grantley Adams Intl., Barbados, on a local sightseeing flight. As the aircraft was climbing through 7,500 feet, the master warning illuminated and a right engine pylon overheat ECAS message appeared. The emergency checklist was completed up to the point of engine shutdown. An emergency was declared and the flight returned to the airport with the right engine (Garrett TFE731-20AR-1B) at idle. With the power on the engine reduced to idle, the pylon overheat warning extinguished. Maintenance examination determined the right high pressure bleed air duct was cracked and leaking bleed air into the pylon. The duct was replaced and the aircraft was returned to service.
