May 24, 2010

Incident at TORONTO / LESTER B. PEARSON INTL ON (CYYZ) (Conflict - loss of separation)

The Westjet Boeing 737-700 series aircraft (operating as flight WJA2711) was departing on a scheduled IFR flight from Toronto (LBPIA) (CYYZ) to Bermuda International Airport, (TXKF). The (Air Canada) Jazz Air Limited Partnership Bombardier CL-600-2D14 (705) Regional Jet aircraft (operating as flight JZA8857) was on a scheduled IFR flight from Charlottetown Airport (CYYG) to Toronto (LBPIA) (CYYZ). An ATS-OI occurred when WJA2711 was turned inbound from the downwind for Rwy 124L in front of JZA851 straight in for 24L. This resulted in less than the required separation.
UPDATE Supplemental information received from TSB Daily Notification Log [#A10O0100]: A loss of separation occurred at Toronto (LBPIA) (CYYZ) when WJA2711, a Boeing 737-700 airplane, was turned inbound from the downwind for runway 24L in front of JZA851, a Canadair CL-600-2B19 Regional Jet airplane that was further back on a straight-in approach to runway 24L. Both aircraft were at an altitude of 4,000 feet. The flight crews had been assigned speed restrictions so that WJA2711 was 70 KIAS faster than JZA851 with the intention of sequencing WJA2711 ahead of JZA851. Separation decreased to less than 2NM laterally (3NM is the standard) while WJA2711 was converging on the final approach course at which time the speed advantage was increasing separation. Controller training was in progress and the OJI had additional options to regain separation. However JZA851 had visual contact with WJA2711 (good VFR weather existed) and continued on a visual approach. Both flights landed without further incident. NAVCANADA is conducting an OSI.

NAV CANADA staff at Toronto (LBPIA) control tower reported that the flight crew conducted a missed approach to runway 05 due to the previous arrival being slow to exit onto the slippery taxiways. Ops. impact -- unknown.
