A Jazz de Havilland Dash 8-100, registration C-FABW performing flight QK-8882 from Halifax,NS to Deer Lake,NL (Canada), was climbing out of Halifax, the gear had been fully retracted, locked up and gear doors had correctly closed, when all gear door lights and the red gear handle light illuminated, the gear doors opened and closed resulting in a safe indication again. A few minutes later all gear door lights and the gear handle light illuminated again, all gear doors opened and closed again resulting in all lights extinguishing again. The crew stopped the climb at 8000 feet and decided to return to Halifax where the aircraft landed safely about 20 minutes after departure.
