Incident at Peace River, AB (TCAS alert, Conflict - loss of separation)
1997-11-19: C-GSCX executed a missed approach at the Shell/Hamburg airfield and returned to Peace River where the crew entered a hold at the Allex fix at 5500 feet. CDR 1136 attempted to land at Peace River, but had to do a missed approach, and received a clearance for a second attempt, not to go above 4500 feet. During their maneuver for the second approach, the crew of CDR 1136 requested a clearance to go to High Level. When this new clearance was issued to CDR 1136, the a/c was northbound, and north of the Peace River VOR. The new clearance required CDR 1136 to climb toward C-GSCX, to 7000 feet, which resulted in CDR 1136 passing C-GSCX with less than the required separation. The two a/c passed each other by 1000 feet, and both crews reported that they saw each other, and CDR 1136 received a TCAS alert. OPI - System Safety UPDATE Weather conditions at the time of the incident were 400 feet overcast with light snow and five miles visibility. NavCanada will be conducting a fact-finding board to determine why this loss of separation occurred.
