A Perimeter Aviation de Havilland Dash 8-100, registration C-GWPS performing flight 4B-639 from Winnipeg,MB to Sainte Therese Point,MB (Canada) with 22 people on board, was climbing out of Winnipeg when upon gear retraction the crew received a hydraulic caution indication. When the crew reselected the gear down and up again, the main hydraulic pressure gauge dropped to zero. The crew decided to return to Winnipeg for a safe landing about 35 minutes after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported that maintenance performed a number of gear swings but could not reproduce the problem. The aircraft had received maintenance the day before the occurrence, it is believed that air had been introduced into the hydraulic system during that maintenance work.
