2015-02-18: While on approach Runway 05, an Exploits Valley Air Services Beech 1900D (C-GLHO / EV7589) from Moncton, NB (CYQM) to Halifax, NS (CYHZ) advised the tower of an indicator problem and asked to circle to troubleshoot. 9 minutes later, aircraft advised they were inbound for landing but requested Emergency Response Services (ERS) on standby as a precaution.

2015-03-05: UPDATE: TSB Report#A15A0007: The Exploits Valley Air Service Ltd. Beechcraft 1900D, registration C-GLHO, was operating as EV7589 on a scheduled flight from Moncton, NB to Halifax. NS (CYHZ). On approach to CYHZ the crew selected the landing gear down and noted that they had not received a landing gear down position indication. The crew elected to overshoot and coordinated with the CYHZ tower to hold so that they could troubleshoot the problem. The crew could see that the main landing gear was down, tested the down position lamps as serviceable and noted that the in-transit indication was extinguished. The crew then selected a manual extension to assure landing gear hydraulic system pressure was present and returned to CYHZ for a landing with ARRF requested to stand by. The flight landed without further incident. Company maintenance replaced an annunciator system printed circuit board and confirmed correct indication during functional testing. A service difficulty report was filed by the operator with Transport Canada.
