Commutair DH8B at Washington on Apr 7th 2016, aileron mistrim indication
Last Update: April 10, 2016 / 12:48:52 GMT/Zulu time
A replacement Dash 8-200 registration N365PH departed about two hours after landing and reached Albany with a delay of 2.5 hours.
On Apr 9th 2016 The Aviation Herald learned that the aircraft was climbing through 2000 feet when the ailerons went to full left hand trim, the crew needed to counter which was possible as the roll spoilers had not extended, hence the situation was not an immediate emergency situation. The checklist for aileron trim runaway was completed but did not resolve the problem prompting the crew to avoid weather and return to Washington. Due to the pending overweight landing the crew declared emergency and landed safely.
