Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2014-12-12: Update Maintenance & Manufacturing: Pilot reported that engine oil temperature was at upper redline (240 degrees) and oil pressure was slightly below minimum cruise pressure of 30 psi. The engine cowlings were removed, engine and oil cooler inspected with no faults found. The engine was allowed to cool, an extended ground run was carried out and temperatures and pressures were found within limits. It is believed that the high outside air temperatures combined with longer ground waits in YFC are creating the overheating problems. Because the aircraft has a smaller oil cooler it is harder to recover from a higher oil temperature which gives it the lower oil pressure. The aircraft was released.
2014-12-12: At 1948Z, a Canlink Aviation Inc. Diamond DA 20-C1 (C-FNZQ) on a local flight at Fredericton, NB (CYFC), reported a high oil temperature indication, returning to CYFC for landing. The aircraft landed at 1954Z with no further incident.
