An Air Canada Airbus A320-200, registration C-GKOE performing flight AC-614 from Toronto,ON to Halifax,NS (Canada) with 151 people on board, was climbing out of Toronto's runway 24R when the flight crew attempted to retract the flaps, the flaps however stopped at position 1. The crew stopped the climb at 5000 feet, declared PAN and entered a hold to burn off fuel. After reaching maximum landing weight the crew commenced the approach to Toronto for a safe landing back about 80 minutes after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance following the Troubleshooting Manual for Flap Shaft Overspeed and reset the wing tip brake. The flap system was tested with no further fault found. As a precaution the slat flap control computer #1 was replaced.
