Thunder Bay – Professionalism and skill at the Thunder Bay International Airport as a second incident that Transport Canada updated earlier today required a little more expert action.

2020-12-07: A Jazz Bombardier CL-600-2D24 (JZA7936) from Toronto/Lester B. Pearson, ON (CYYZ) to Thunder Bay, ON (CYQT) reported a hydraulic issue, advised continuing to CYQT and requested trucks to be on standby. JZA7936 landed safely. No impact to operations.

Today’s Update: A Bombardier CL-600-2D24 operated by Jazz Aviation as flight JZA7936, was en route from Toronto/Lester B. Pearson, ON (CYYZ) to Thunder Bay, ON (CYQT) with a crew of 4 and 43 passengers onboard.

While descending through 33,000 feet, the crew received a #2 hydraulic low pressure caution indication and the #2 hydraulic fluid quantity indicator indicated a complete loss of fluid.

After referencing the QRH and consulting with company maintenance personnel by radio, the crew decided to continue to CYQT.

During approach into CYQT, the crew was able to extend the landing gear using normal procedures.

The crew requested that AARF be put on standby and the aircraft then landed safely.

The aircraft came to a stop on the runway and was inspected by AARF before it continued to the gate. The operator’s maintenance crew subsequently replaced the #2 engine driven hydraulic pump and engine quick disconnect for the pressure line.

There were no injuries.
