Shortly afterwards, C-GSEU saw and heard another aircraft, a Cessna, report being on the left downwind for Runway 27. C-GSEU saw that this Cessna aircraft was on a possible collision course with the southbound RV6 aircraft. A few seconds later, the RV6 executed an evasive hard right turn (over 45 degrees of bank) to avoid and follow the Cessna on the downwind. The RV6 then reported that it had seen the Cessna and would widen its circuit to follow it. C-GSEU, the RV6 and the Cessna aircraft all landed uneventfully.

The Instructor of the Principal Air Cessna 152 (C-GMGF), VFR Chilliwack (CYCW) to CYCW, was flying with his student at CYCW, an ATF aerodrome, at approximately 12:30 Local PST. The C152 was joining early downwind when 2 groups of 3 aircraft, consisting of privately-registered Globe GC18, 2 Vans RV6, Vans RV7A, Vans RV4, and a Harmon Rocket II, flying in formation crossed midfield announcing they were landing. The six aircraft flew an abnormally large circuit, forcing the C152 4 miles from the airport on their downwind. The C152 was cut off on final when 2 of the 6 aircraft ahead did not land, but instead did a right break into a 360 turn to bring them back on final at 500 feet without appropriate radio call of their intentions. When queried, their response was that formation flights have the right of way and the group continued to cut the C152 off at 500', With a solo student, the anticipated result would have been a near miss. The Company's Chief Flight Instructor did request they follow published procedures at the airport when other traffic is in the circuit. The lead Globe GC18 aircraft advised that formation flights have right of way and students were to stay out of their way.
UPDATE from General Aviation: During examination of the statements from both parties by General Aviation and Commercial & Business Aviation it was decided that there was not any regulatory action needed. The Formation Leader made request to the Pilot-In-Command (PIC) of the Cessna 152 to extend the circuit and it was refused by PIC (instructor) stating ?can?t do that, we are Commercial flight?. At that point it was clear that the Cessna would not accommodate the Flight of 6. Both parties flew a non standard circuit procedure.
