Incident at THE PAS MB (CYQD) (ATS operating irregularity)


1997-01-29: An operating irregularity occurred in the Winnipeg ACC. Calm Air Flight 1555, a SAAB340, C-FTJW, was departing The Pas, Manitoba for Swan River. The initial ATC IFR clearance issued through The Pas FSS cleared CAV1555 to maintain 13, 000 feet. A revised clearance was then issued by Winnipeg reclearing CAV1555 to 9000 feet. The Pas FSS specialist did not pass the revised clearance to CAV1555. CAV1555 contacted Winnipeg Centre before flight reached 9000 feet; however, the controller realized that CAV1555 had not yet received the revised clearance. A technical loss of separation occurred with another flight operating at 10,000 feet. NAVCAN are conducting an internal investigation/followup.
