Incident at The Pas, MB


1997-04-23: C-FSAL was on a clearance from Regina direct The Pas direct Thompson at 15,000 ft. estimating The Pas at 2015Z. C-FEMA, a Cessna Citation C500 was issued a descent clearance to FL 200 approaching The Pas. C-FSAL progressed to The Pas at 2015Z, and the controller observed a target over The Pas at 17,000 ft. which was confirmed to be C-FSAL. C-FEMA was cleared to FL190 until geographical separation could be established. A loss of separation did not occur, although a potential conflict did exist. UPDATE C-FEMA had been cleared to descend from FL310 to FL200 and as they approached The Pas, requested a further descent. The pilot of C-FSAL reported by The Pas at 15,000 ft. but radar showed that the a/c was at 17,000 ft. The controller contacted the pilot of C-FSAL and confirmed that the a/c was at 17,000 ft. Required separation for the sector is 1000 ft vertically and 5NM horizontally. The controller delayed issuing a descent clearance for C-FEMA to ensure loss of separation did not occur.
