Incident at WABUSH NL (CYWK)

Summary

2015-09-01: Update from Maintenance & Manufacturing: During area navigation (RNAV) approach into Wabush (CYWK), the crew lost receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM) just before the final approach fix (FAF). As per standard operating procedure (SOP) and safety the crew carried out a missed approach. RAIM was rechecked and determined to be functional. The crew conducted a second RNAV with no incident. It is to be noted that on July 6th the crew reported that the GPS was constantly showing "RAIM" not available. Maintenance found that the coax connector at the antenna was found to be corroded causing an insulation breakdown between the conductor & shield. The connector was replaced with the system testing serviceable.
