Landing Light, PN: 45-0234-3 SN: 0583 on PO M77986 received however upon receipt the unit could not be added to the maintenance control program as a Landing Light, PN: 45-0234-3 SN: 0583, with identical part information was already installed other aircraft. P/No: 4502343.

Fokker F28 MK070 fire protection system—actuator unserviceable. SDR 510021647
while carrying out an emergency shut-down system operational check the right hand fuel fire shut-off valve (FFSOV) failed to travel from the open to closed position in three seconds (took approximately eight seconds to actuate). FFSOV actuator replaced.

Fokker F28 MK070 Flight control system—flight control unit suspect faulty. SDR 510021696
During descent the flight crew encountered an uncontrolled pitch down of the Aircraft for approximately one second with the Autopilot engaged, with a No Autoland message displaying. Troubleshooting by engineering staff identified automatic flight control and augmentation system (AFCAS) faults. Investigation continuing.

Fokker F28 MK070 flight control system—flight control unit suspect faulty. SDR 510021713
During descent, the flight crew encountered an uncontrolled pitch down of the Aircraft for approximately one second with the Autopilot engaged, with a No Autoland message displaying. Investigation ongoing.

Fokker F28 MK070 flight control system—flight control unit suspect faulty. SDR 510021715
During flight with Autopilot engaged, the flight crew encountered an uncontrolled pitch down and then up of the aircraft. Troubleshooting by engineering staff identified automatic flight control and augmentation system (AFCAS) maintenance panel (AMP) diagnostic code No. 121840, elevator servo jammed, with the subsequent elevator servo, AFCAS Test carried out without fault.

Fokker F28 MK070 Ice and rain protection wiring—wire damaged. SDR 510021479
During scheduled anti-ice system wiring modifications, discolouration and melting of a system wire was discovered. Inspection of the surrounding area identified no further damage. Damaged wire replaced, investigation determined that the damage was probably caused by high resistance at the wire/splice interface.

IAI 1124 DC generation system—bearing collapsed. SDR 510021723
Airframe vibration felt through airframe. Vibration ceased when RH 3 engine shut down. Engineering confirmed that the RH DC Generator was the source of the engine vibration. This component was replaced and the aircraft returned to service with nil further related defects. The strip report for the DC Generator notes that the ADE (armature drive end) bearing cage had collapsed allowing the ball bearings to move around erratically. P/No: 03601018.

IAI 1124 Power lever—cable suspect faulty. SDR 510021757
LH power lever was extremely difficult to move during flight, as if the friction was too tight. As the aircraft passed through 11,000 ft the power lever had started to move more freely and by 5000 ft normal full and free movement was restored. Investigation ongoing. P/No: 5536281.

Lear Jet 36A DC generation system—generator unserviceable. SDR 510021701
During flight it was noted a minor generator rumble was evident followed by a RH generator failure indication. Investigation found RH generator physically binding internally when rotated causing subsequent failure of RH voltage regulator. P/No: 66082019. TSO: 1148 hours/404 cycles/404 landings/36 months.

Lear Jet 45 detection system—fire detector failed. SDR 510021700
During pre-flight inspection it was noted the RH engine fire detection system failed to test. Fault was isolated to open circuit RH engine hot section fire detection loop. After further access it was noted the RH hot section fire detect loop was broken at the rear of the upper engine deck disconnect. Detection element was removed and replaced, aircraft restored and operational testing carried out with nil further defects detected. P/No: 74412135. TSN: 4119 hours/3159 cycles/3159 landings/117 months.

Saab SF340A Landing gear retract/extension system—controller unserviceable. SDR 510021691
On departure, the crew selected gear up and the disagreement light in the landing gear control handle failed to illuminate. It did work during the subsequent extension of the gear. Engineering investigation confirmed the fault was in the landing gear controller PN: D494-12-001. The controller has been replaced and the aircraft has been returned to service. P/No: D49412001. TSO: 198 hours/146 cycles.

Saab SF340B DC generation system—PDU faulty. SDR 510021702
LH power distribution unit (PDU) faulty. PDU failed due to internal FOD contamination. PDU replaced. P/No: A2042C. TSN: 49539 hours/51597 cycles.

Saab SF340B EICAS—circuit breaker blanked off. SDR 510021545
After rotate, F/O EFIS screen went blank. On taxi, nose wheel steering became inoperable. Fault traced to R/H Avionics switch intermittent in operation, sometimes internal short to GND causing CB to pop. Switch assembly replaced.

Saab SF340B Landing gear retract/extension system—landing gear unserviceable. SDR 510021640
After landing gear was retracted, the landing gear disagreement light in the handle was not illuminated. Engineering staff confirmed the defect and replaced the landing gear control panel. P/No: D49412001. TSO: 8661 hours/9323 cycles

Saab SF340B Pneumatic system—duct disbonded. SDR 510021706
LH bleed duct rubber gooseneck ducting found disbanded. Ducting replaced. P/No: 9303688100.
