Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2017-03-06: UPDATE Airworthiness: The instructor and student were on an IFR flight. On the first approach the three landing gear lights came on like normal. On the second approach the left main did not indicate down. A flypast the tower was carried out with the gear appearing to be down. Pilot tried switching the bulbs, and the manual gear extension without solving the gear indication problem. Maintenance was consulted by radio for any other recommendations. During the approach and landing when the aircraft touched down the weight of the aircraft then turned the gear light on. Maintenance was unable to duplicate the issue. A new gear indication micro switch and down lock spring were installed. The drag brace truss was removed, cleaned and assembled. The switch was adjusted and multiple gear swings carried out with no faults found. The aircraft was released for a test flight and no faults were found during test flight.
