Cessna TR182 Turbo Skylane RG
Registration: N4602S
C/n / msn: R18201353
Fatalities:Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 2
Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:Wichita Mid-Continent Airport (KICT), Wichita, Kansas -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Departure airport:Wichita, KS (ICT)
Destination airport:Wichita, KS (ICT)
Investigating agency: NTSB
The pilot reported that, during initial climb, the landing gear failed to retract into a locked position. He left the airport traffic area to troubleshoot the landing gear problem, but the gear would not retract or extend properly. He chose to return to the airport to land without the landing gear in the down-and-locked position. During the landing, the left main landing gear collapsed, which resulted in damage to the left wing tip and empennage.
Postaccident examination of the airplane revealed that a hydraulic line that attached to the forward left side of the actuator was twisted and ruptured, that the hydraulic fluid had leaked from the hose, and that the hydraulic power pack reservoir was empty. Maintenance personnel had conducted maintenance on the landing gear to repair a hydraulic leak from the nose landing gear actuator 5 days before the accident; it is likely maintenance personnel improperly repaired the landing gear system during the maintenance.

Probable Cause: Maintenance personnelís improper landing gear system repair, which resulted in a hydraulic leak and subsequent gear collapse during landing.
