Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)

Summary

2011-01-19: UPDATE Maintenance & Manufacturing: Upon landing the aircraft was pulling left, and the instructor was quick to take control, although the aircraft continued to pull left, they were able to come to a full stop. When attempting to move the aircraft, the left brake seemed to still be applied and only after cycling the parking brake valve in and out several times did the left brake let go and they were able to move the aircraft. A slight adjustment to the park brake valve cable was made and the aircraft brake system could no longer be faulted. The lock up of the left brake caused a flat spot of the tire; therefore it had to be replaced.
2011-01-18: After landing, MFCLG03, Piper PA44 180, reported a flat tire and was unable to vacate the runway. Investigation revealed that it was actually a stuck brake. The aircraft taxied off the runway at 23:15Z. Multiple aircraft were moved to Runway 24.
