Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Summary

2013-01-17: UPDATE Airthworthiness: As soon as power was applied to both engines for the climb, the oil pressure dropped indicating power fail on both engines. After manipulation of the props and power levers the power returned. Loss of power was for a few seconds (less than ten). Prior to the climb the fuel pumps were turned on and mixtures were set to full rich. The aircraft returned to the airport for landing. Nothing out of the ordinary was noted during run ups both before or after the flight. Maintenance is investigating the incident.
2013-01-14: MFCLG04, Piper PA44, reported an airborne emergency (a mechanical issue that was later determined to be a drop in oil pressure) approximately 15 miles southwest of Moncton (CYQM). The flight cancelled IFR and returned to Moncton safely.
2013-01-23: UPDATE Airworthiness: The fuel and oil systems on both engines and the aircraft were inspected with no faults found. A calibrated gauge was placed on both engine oil systems and the gauges were found to be accurate. The right hand fuel pressure gauge was replaced as it was found to be fluctuating at higher rpm settings. Several ground runs were carried out with no issues found. A test flight was carried out and the only snag returning from the flight was that the oil pressure indications were split. According to the flight manual both oil pressures were within limits for the type. No further adjustments were carried out. The aircraft was returned to service.
