Prince George, B.C. – For the second time this week,  Prince George Airport  Emergency Services  personnel were in place and ready in the event  a  Pacific Coastal charter flight  didn’t land  safely.

The  pilot  indicated   there was a possibility of an issue with the landing  gear.    A  flypast the tower confirmed the  landing  gear was in  position,  and the  Beechcraft made a safe landing.

While emergency personnel from  the  City of Prince George and  Pineview  Volunteer  Fire Department were   heading to the airport to assist the Airport’s emergency team,  they were  told to  stand down,  as the  plane had  landed  safely.

Earlier this week, a WestJet flight from Vancouver to Terrace diverted to Prince George  because of  concerns over the nose gear  not deploying properly.  That flight also  landed safely. ( see previous story)


The issue when you under cut local business like NTAIR CMA but do not pay for proper unkeep. I sure you will hear more.


    Umm what are you talking about ..

    All commercial aircraft must undergo regular maintenance and inspection regardless how big or small the company or planes are its mandated by federal law and only certified aviation mechanics are allowed to work on commercial aircraft and all commercial aircraft must meet stringent regulations set by the federal government, the companies policies and air worthiness orders set forth by the CTSB in order to be allowed to fly commercially

Couple burnt out light bulbs/proximity switches, err on the side of caution folks.
