2013-04-19: Update: TSB report #A13Q0053: A Hawker Beechcraft 100, registered as C-GJBV and operated by Skyjet Aviation as flight number SJ512, was on an IFR flight from Wabush (CYWK) to Sept-Îles (CYZV). During the climb, at about 20 NM south of the airport, the crew noticed white smoke followed by a bleed air failure indication on the annunciator panel. The crew asked to return to Wabush immediately, and the control centre requested that emergency services be on the ground for the crew's arrival. The crew initiated the checklist and identified the smoke as coming from the right engine (P&W PT6A-26). They shut down the bleed air and the smoke stopped immediately. The aircraft landed without incident. The aircraft then made a ferry flight to Québec/Jean-Lesage (CYQB) without passengers and with the right side bleed air system shut down. The maintenance crew discovered a hole in a duct. The duct was repaired in accordance with manufacturer specifications, and the aircraft was returned to service.
