Incident at VANCOUVER INTL BC (CYVR)

Summary

1996-09-23: Helijet 707, a Sikorsky S-76 was enroute from Vancouver Harbour to Victoria Harbour and was climbing to 6000 feet. Air BC 646, a Dash 8 had just taken off for Kelowna from Vancouver's runway 26 and was cleared to climb to 5000 feet. The departure controller was vectoring the Dash 8 and he issued a vector to a track that would cross in front of the Helijet aircraft. When the vector was issued, the vertical separation between the two aircraft was 2000 feet. The Helijet pilot decreased the helicopter's rate of climb. This was not detected by the controller and when the Dash 8 crossed the helicopter's path the aircraft were separated by 700 feet and 2 miles in an area where 3 miles and 1000 feet are required. ATS are conducting a fact finding board.
