Incident at Edmonton, AB (Conflict - potential, Communication navigation surveillance/air traffic system)


1997-09-09: CDR 1346 was inbound from Fort McMurray with a crew of 2 and 32 passengers, and cleared for the approach to Runway 20. Co-ordination between the ACC and Tower was done, and approval given by Tower for CDR 1346 to do that approach. The a/c was handed off to Tower frequency well back of the airport. At the same time, C-FAFC departed from Runway 02 with a pilot and 1 passenger for South Kabob, AB and was assigned runway heading and 4500 feet. The pilot of C-FAFC was also given a transponder code to squawk, however he apparently did not turn on his transponder. The two a/c came within 1/4 to 1/5 of a mile of each other at about 6 miles from the airport, with CDR 1346 at 4100 feet and C-FAFC at an undetermined altitude. The CDR 1346 crew altered course to avoid the other a/c. The traffic information had not been passed on to the a/c, and there was no controller action to separate the a/c. NavCanada will conduct an internal investigation into the incident. Weather at the time of the incident was VMC.
