Incident at Peace River, AB (Communication navigation surveillance/air traffic system)


1997-12-01: NTM 100 was cleared for an instrument approach at Peace River ( wx at the time was 200 feet overcast and 4 miles visibility). The crew of NTM 100 were handed over to the Peace River FSS on 122.3, however the crew did not call on the MF. Another a/c, C-GAEN a PA-31, had landed ahead of NTM 100 and was unable to exit the runway because of 10 inch windrows of snow on both taxiways. A snowplough was dispatched and was in the process of clearing the taxiways when NTM 100 was heard overhead. The first call from the crew of NTM 100 was on the missed approach. When questioned, the crew of NTM 100 said they remained at 2800 feet ASL throughout the missed approach, and did not call because of a communication failure. NTM 100 did another approach and landed at 0017Z. OPI - Enforcement
