Incident at LACHUTE QC (CSE4)

Aviation Incident Report #17435: A privately registered Mooney M20E from Sherbrooke, QC (CYSC) to Lachute, QC (CSE4) was on very short final Runway 28 when a 6800009 Canada Inc. Cessna 172N (C-GVWT) from Lachute, QC (CSE4) to Lachute, QC (CSE4), which was holding on Taxiway B for Runway 28, lined up and took off without any radio communication. The Mooney M20E had made prior radio announcements on the aerodrome traffic frequency (ATF) on downwind, base let, final and short final. The Mooney M20E had to conduct a go-around at around 200 feet above ground level (AGL) and lost sight of C-GVWT as both aircraft were almost vertical of each other. The Mooney M20E made a short low altitude left-hand uneventful circuit and came back to land Runway 28. C-GVWT continued on normal traffic pattern for Runway 28 and landed uneventfully 3 minutes later, without any radio communication made on the ATF.
