Incident at TORONTO / BUTTONVILLE MUNICIPAL ON (CYKZ)

TSB Report #A19O0011: C-FOST, a Beech B300 Super King Air aircraft operated by Chartright Air, was conducting an IFR flight from Toronto/Billy Bishop Toronto City (CYTZ), ON to Toronto/Buttonville Muni (CYKZ), ON. Approaching CYKZ, the flight crew of C-FOST conducted the RNAV approach to Runway 33. Shortly after passing waypoint SINRU (2.6 miles from the threshold of Runway 33), the flight crew observed a high-wing aircraft on a tight base leg for their intended landing runway. The flight crew initiated a go-around, and entered a right hand circuit for Runway 33 in VFR Meteorological Conditions (VMC). As the aircraft turned to line up with Runway 33 on final approach, the flight crew observed the same high-wing aircraft departing on Runway 15, flying towards them briefly before making a right turn. C-FOST subsequently landed without further incident.
UPDATE Aviation incident report #16260: A Chartright Air Beech B300 (C-FOST) was on the area navigation approach for Runway 33 at Toronto/Buttonville, ON (CYKZ). The aircraft was instructed by Toronto Centre to switch to frequency 124.80 by VIGSA. The first officer (FO) made the first call announcing the aircrafts intentions to proceed on the IFR RNAV approach. At least 3 subsequent radio calls were made after VIGSA prior to short final. A radio call was heard from a helicopter which announced its position relative to the field. Visual contact was also made with the helicopter. After crossing SINRU while in landing configuration, the pilots of C-FOST saw a high-wing aircraft on a tight base to final for Runway 33. There was a short and unclear radio call stating "... on final Runway 33". It was later learned that the aircraft was a privately registered Cessna 206H. The pilot in command (PIC) of C-FOST initiated a go-around immediately. C-FOST climbed to 1 800ft above sea level (ASL) and initiated a right turn to join the mid-right downwind for Runway 33. The right downwind was chosen as it was determined from the helicopters call that the high wing plan was in the vicinity of Runway 15. Some time later, the Cessna 206H made a call stating that it would be doing a "tear drop for Runway 15". While on the right downwind for Runway 33, C-FOST made calls requesting any aircraft in the vicinity to state their position. As there was no response or visual contact, C-FOST continued its approach and landed Runway 33 without further incident. Witnesses surmised that C-FOST and the Cessna 206H had come relatively close in their flight paths. It was determined that the Cessna 206H had not made the proper radio calls.
