A Calm Air Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-202, registration C-FJCQ performing flight MO-117 from Thompson,MB to Winnipeg,MB (Canada) with 43 passengers and 4 crew, was enroute about 150nm north of Winnipeg when one engine (PW124) rolled back to about 37% torque. The crew selected continuous relight and the engine recovered to cruise torque. About 30 minutes later the engine rolled back to 0% torque, the crew secured the engine. As the related checklist offered the option to restart the engine, the crew attempted a relight of the engine which was successful. The aircraft landed in Winnipeg without further incident.

The Canadian TSB reported: "While en route, at approximately 150 nautical miles north of CYWG, the flight crew observed instrument fluctuations on the number 1 (right) engine and the torque rolled back to 37%. The flight crew then selected continuous relight and the engine torque slowly recovered to cruise value. Approximately 30 minutes later, the right engine dropped to 0% torque. The flight crew secured the engine and completed the ATR QRH checklist for "engine flame-out in flight". Included in the checklist is an option to attempt a re-start of the engine. The flight crew successfully restarted the engine and landed uneventfully at CYWG. During a subsequent inspection by the operator's maintenance, the #1 engine EEC, the #1 engine high-pressure fuel pump and the MFCU were inspected and replaced. Ground runs were carried out with no faults found, and the aircraft was returned to service." (Editorial note: there is no possibility as of current to find out whether engine #1, which would be left hand engine, or the right hand engine was affected. The crew told ATC "one engine" had been shut down, which could cause the confusion of the #1 engine although the right hand engine #2 according to the narrative was affected).
