Incident at RIVIÈRE-DU-LOUP QC (CYRI)

Aviation incident report #15273: an Irving Air Service Inc. Beech B200GT (C-GJDI) arrived at CYRI on the wrong frequency (122.8 instead of 122.775, the frequency published only by NOTAM in August 2017). At the same time, a helicopter was taking off towards the SW and merely a few minutes earlier, another plane landed on the same runway, and these two planes had no idea that there was an aircraft in conflict. There was therefore great potential for a multi-aircraft collision.

UPDATE TSB:A09A0105: The Irving Air Service Inc. BE200 aircraft, registration C-GJDI, was enroute from Saint John, NB to Halifax, NS when the temperature inside the aircraft rose dramatically and the occupants could detect fumes. The pilot depressurized the aircraft and carried out an emergency descent to 3000 ft, then ventilated the aircraft via the cockpit windows. ARFF was standing by as the aircraft landed at Halifax without further incident. Examination revealed that the air conditioning temperature controller had failed in the full hot position.
C-GJDI, Beech B200GT, enroute from Saint John (CYSJ) to Halifax (CYHZ), conducted an emergency descent due smoke in the cockpit. Once at 3,000 feet, the pilot was able to open windows and clear the smoke. The Airport Duty Manager (ADM) was advised. Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) was on standby. The aircraft landed safely on Runway 05 at 15:39Z. TSB Case Closed.

February 5, 2002

Incident at GREENWOOD NS (CYZX) (Conflict - potential, Conflict - loss of separation, ATS operating irregularity)

Operating irregularity. At 2248Z the Moncton ACC (Digby Sector Controller) issued a clearance for CFC1624 (a P3) to LICZ via Greenwood direct to YQY flight planned route at 9000 ft. At 2307 the Moncton ACC issued a clearance via the Greenwood MTCU for C-GJDI (a DHC6) from Waterville airport (approximately 10 nm east of Greenwood) to Saint John airport, to maintain 3000 ft. The 3000 ft altitude was used to ensure sufficient separation with CFC1624 crossing track in airspace controlled by Moncton. Greenwood reported the departure of C-GJDI at 2312Z, confirming the coordinated altitude of 3000 ft. At 2316 the Greenwood controller advised Moncton that C-GJDI was cleared to 4000 ft in order to meet direction of flight rules. This now put C-GJDI within Moncton controlled airspace with no planned separation with CFC1624. TSB Evaluating
