An Air Canada Airbus A320-200, registration C-GPWG performing flight AC-913 from Orlando,FL (USA) to Toronto,ON (Canada) with 110 passengers and 6 crew, rejected takeoff from Orlando's runway 36R at low speed due to a "minor issue". The aircraft slowed safely and vacated the runway via taxiway E about 3000 feet/900 meters down the runway and joined taxiway B to taxi to the holding point again. The crew subsequently reported they had fairly hot left hand brakes and needed emergency services, who responded and cooled the brakes.

A passenger reported while the aircraft was holding on taxiway B that the aircraft rejected takeoff, the captain subsequently announced they had a computer message prompting them to reject takeoff. Emergency services responded and went onto stand by next to the aircraft, engines were shut down and the APU activated and they were now waiting for the brakes to cool off. The passenger added the following day, that after the brakes had cooled down the crew attempted another takeoff but again needed to reject the takeoff at about the same point due to the same message. The aircraft subsequently returned to the apron.

A replacement Airbus A321-200 registration C-GITY reached Toronto with a delay of 4.5 hours.

The incident aircraft was able to resume service about 12 hours after the rejected takeoff and performed flight AC-923 of Nov 2nd, that had been scheduled to be flown by C-GITY, and is about to reach Toronto on schedule (of flight AC-923).

On Nov 9th 2012 the Canadian TSB reported the crew received a vent skin valve fault indication and rejected takeoff. A reset of the system cleared the fault and the aircraft began another takeoff run, but the same fault occurred again resulting in another rejected takeoff. The crew suspected hot brakes after the two rejected takeoffs and requested emergency services to check the aircraft before the aircraft returned to the gate. The Avionics Equipment Ventilation Controller was replaced, subsequent testing showed no further fault. A brakes inspection revealed no damage.
