BTA3058, un Embraer 145 exploité par Continental Express, effectuait un vol selon les règles de vol aux instruments (IFR) depuis Newark (KEWR) à destination de Montréal/Trudeau (CYUL). JZA7671, un De Havilland Dash 8 exploité par Air Canada Jazz, effectuait un vol selon les règles de vol aux instruments depuis Fredericton (CYFC) à destination de Montréal/Trudeau. L'équipage de BTA3058 ne s'est pas conformé aux instructions du contrôleur et l'appareil est entré en conflit avec JZA7671 établi en finale pour la piste 24 droite. La séparation a été réduite à 2.2 milles nautiques à la même altitude avant d'augmenter.*** ** *** BTA3058, a Continental Express Embraer 145, was IFR from Newark (KEWR) to Montreal/Trudeau (CYUL). JZA7671, an Air Canada Jazz De Havilland Dash 8, was IFR from Fredericton (CYFC) to Montreal/Trudeau. The crew of BTA3058 did not comply with the controller's instructions and the aircraft came into conflict with JZA7671, which was in final for rwy 24R. Separation was reduced to 2.2 NM at the same altitude before it increased.
Mise à jour #1 : Le numéro et la classe d'enquête du BST ont été ajoutés. Selon le rapport du BST #A09Q0143: L'Embraer 145, BTA3058 exploité par Jet Link (Continental Express), a effectué une remontée à la suite d'une approche visuelle piste 24D à l'aéroport Montréal/Trudeau (CYUL). Le contrôleur de l'aéroport a placé l'appareil en vent arrière serré piste 24D afin de le faire revenir en finale devant un DH8, JZA7671, qui était en longue finale. Parce que BAT3058 n'a pas immédiatement viré en base lorsque le contrôleur lui a demandé, il a dû prolonger son vent arrière. L'espacement entre le BTA3058 et JZA7671 a été réduit à 2,2 milles nautiques alors qu'ils étaient sur une trajectoire opposée et parallèle.*** ** *** Update#1: The TSB number and class of investigation were added.According to TSB report #A09Q0143: BTA3058, a Jet Link (Continental Express) Embraer 145, pulled up after making a visual approach to runway 24R at the Montreal/Trudeau airport (CYUL). The airport traffic controller placed the aircraft on a tight downwind leg for runway 24R in order to have it come back in final ahead of JZA671, a DH8, which was on a long approach. Because BTA3058 did not immediately turn when the controller asked it to, the controller had to extend its downwind leg. The separation between BTA3058 and JZA7671 was reduced to 2.2 NM while they were in opposing and parallel trajectories.

Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Update Maintenance and Manufacturing : The aircraft departed Charlottetown (YYG) for Montreal(YUL). Icing conditions in the YUL Region were called for so the flight crew engaged the anti-ice system prior to entering only to find out the No.1 engine intake heater was unserviceable. The crew found the C/B popped, reset once no fix, still no load. The crew was trained in elementary maintenance and the decision made by all parties to divert the aircraft to YFC where the flight crew would select the standby heater element and add more fuel for alternates (if required). Upon landing in Charlottetown it was discovered that the Mod to the aircraft was not done. YUL maintenance was dispatched to select to alternate heater at the connector 3021-P4 pin A to Pin B I.A.W. AMM. Ground runs carried out aircraft was returned to service. Please note that RCMS has been reviewed and no similar incidents have been noted at this time.
The Air Canada Jazz Dash 8 was enroute from Charlottetown to Montreal when the pilot reported that the aircraft de-icing equipment was not functioning properly. No assistance required. Flight diverted to CYFC and landed safely at 2244z.
