Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2010-05-25: C-FNJW, Diamond DA 20 C1, was in the circuit for Runway 27 when it reported a flap indication problem. The aircraft landed safely at 04:30Z. No assistance was required and there was no impact on operations.
2010-05-31: UPDATE Maintenance & Manufacturing: The student pilot reported that during the night flight the flap indicator lights were not visable however the flap positions were confirmed visually. On the ground, the aircraft was checked and the flap indicator lights were operational. It was determined that the flap indication had not failed rather it was a problem of the student pilot not able to see the indication due to other cockpit lighting being illuminated at that time. Reduced cockpit lighting should avoid this problem in the future.
