Temporary difficulty with aircraft control, Jazz Aviation LP (dba Air Canada Express), DHC-8-102 C-GJMO, Mont-Joli Airport, Quebec, 03 February 2016: TU3-5/16-0020E-PDF

"The Jazz Aviation LP (doing business as Air Canada Express) DHC-8-102 (registration C-GJMO, serial number 079) was operating as flight 8964 (JZA8964) from Montréal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, Quebec, to Mont-Joli Airport, Quebec, with 24 passengers and 3 crew members on board. At 1852 Eastern Standard Time, the Montréal Area Control Centre cleared JZA8964 for the area navigation approach for Runway 06 at Mont-Joli. As the aircraft was descending through 2480 feet above sea level with the landing gear down, the aircraft encountered moderate turbulence. The maximum landing gear extended speed was exceeded, and the pilot flying disconnected the autopilot. The pilot flying experienced temporary difficulty controlling the aircraft but was able to maintain the approach profile and carry out the landing with no further difficulty. After landing, the aircraft taxied normally to the air terminal, and the passengers disembarked. There were no injuries and no damage to the aircraft. The occurence took place during the hours of darkness."--Summary.
