2013-01-25: UPDATE Maintenance & Manufacturing: After departing Yellowknife, NT the crew selected the landing gear up and received a Nose Gear unsafe indication light. The gear was selected down and all gear down and locked lights came on, the crew decided to return to Yellowknife. The aircraft landed without further incident. Company Maintenance inspected the aircraft and found the Nose oleo ?flat? (fully compressed). During flight, with the gear selected up, this prevented the striker plate on the oleo from contacting the up lock switch. The oleo was serviced and gear swings completed with the system operating normally. The aircraft was cold soaked and a test flight completed (2 complete landing gear cycles) with normal system operation. The aircraft was returned to service and there have been no further reported incidents.
