Final Report: Incident involving a Gulfstream Aeroplane, (EI-JSK) Overhead Waterford, 7 July 2019. Report 2020-011

At 16.30 hrs on 7 July 2019, the aircraft departed Shannon Airport (EINN) with two pilots, one cabin attendant and one passenger on board. Approximately 15 minutes after take-off, while climbing through Flight Level (FL) 290, an amber ‘L [Left] ENGINE MAINTENANCE’ message appeared on the Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (EICAS). This was quickly followed by an Electronic Engine Controller (EEC) commanded shutdown of the left-hand engine with an associated red ‘L ENGINE FAIL’ message on the EICAS. The right-hand engine reverted to an alternate control mode. The Pilots declared a PAN, which was later upgraded to a MAYDAY, and diverted back to EINN where they landed safely. The crew and passenger disembarked normally. There were no injuries.
