Incident at ST. JOHN'S INTL NL (CYYT)


2015-07-21: At 0731Z, an Exploits Valley Air Services Beech 1900D (C-FEVA/ EV7616) departed from Gander, NL (CYQX) to St John's, NL (CYYT). At 0758Z, the flight advised they were aborting approach to Runway 16, CYYT, and returning to CYQX due to a landing gear issue. Flight manually extended landing gear and landed CYQX at 0826Z with no further incident. Although flight did not declare an emergency, emergency vehicles were standing by in CYQX.
2015-09-01: Update from Maintenance and Manufacturing: On approach in to St. John's the crew selected landing gear to the down position and the circuit breaker (CB) popped and gear did not extend. CB was reset and the CB popped again. Crew decided to return to maintenance base. On approach into Gander, the gear was manually lowered as per checklist and the aircraft landed without incident. After trouble shooting was carried out by maintenance the fault could not be duplicated. During the gear swings the LDG hydraulic pack and motor was found to be straining and the gear was slow to operate. The power pack assembly was replaced with a serviceable unit with successful function checks carried out. The aircraft was returned to service. The aircraft flew the remainder of the day with no defects reported.
