Incident at Thompson, MB


1999-02-12: The pilot of C-GTQR, a Piper Navajo, was issued an IFR clearance from Thompson to Norway House that included the instruction to climb on runway heading after takeoff from Runway 05 to 4,000 feet before proceeding on course. Following departure, the a/c was radar identified and was observed turning south when leaving 3,600 feet. The a/c then climbed through the assigned altitude to 4,700 feet, at which point the pilot was questioned by the controller. The pilot descended to 4,000 feet and was later cleared to his flight planned altitude of 5,000 feet. The pilot was instructed to contact Winnipeg FSS approaching Norway House for a descent clearance. The next information on the a/c was received from Winnipeg FSS which indicated that the a/c was on the ground at Norway House, without receiving either descent or approach clearances. Separation with other a/c was not compromised by this incident. OPI - Enforcement
