Incident at DAUPHIN (LT. COL W.G. (BILLY) BARKER, VC APRT) MB (CYDN)
2005-04-06: UPDATE The owner reported that the airframe was inspected and no damage or defects were found. An inspection of the engine revealed a loose fuel line fitting, which likely caused air to enter the fuel system. The fitting was secured, a ground run-up completed and a test flight done with no further problems encountered. The a/c was returned to service.
2005-04-05: C-GQOJ, a Piper PA-28, taxied for circuits on Runway 08 in Dauphin at 1706Z. Shortly after lift off, the aircraft experienced engine troubles and the pilot attempted to touch down on Runway 08 again. The aircraft was unable to stop on the runway and overshot, coming to rest approximately 300 feet off the end of the runway, stuck in mud. There were no injuries or damage reported
2005-04-07: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the a/c had an instructor and student pilot on board and just after lift off, maximum engine power decreased to idle power setting (engine stayed running). The instructor landed the a/c straight ahead and overran the end of the runway, however there was no damage to a/c nor injury to crew members. Investigation by the contact AMO revealed a loose carburetor fuel inlet fitting, which caused air to enter the fuel system, which led to the power loss. A/C landing gear was also inspected with nil damage noted. The engine was re-installed after a major overhaul approximately (10) ten hours prior to this incident. The fitting was removed, re-sealed and re-secured. The a/c was ground run satisfactorily, and a subsequent flight test was also satisfactory. The a/c was released to service 06/04/05. The company will be submitting an SDR and the TC-PMI will follow up with contract AMO.
2005-04-05: UPDATE TSB advised that the Piper PA-28-140, registration C-GQOJ, was taking off on Runway 08 in Dauphin, MB, for a local training flight. During rotation the aircraft began to lose engine (Lycoming 0-360) power and the pilot elected to reject the takeoff. The aircraft came to rest approximately 300 feet off the end of the runway. The instructor and student were not injured and the aircraft was not damaged. The aircraft was able to taxi back to the hangar under its own power. The operator is currently inspecting the aircraft and will advise of their finding.
