Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC)

Summary

1999-03-03: The pilot of C-GVLO, a Cessna 172, was instructed to backtrack on Runway 25, but then departed without takeoff clearance. The crew of ACA 185, an A319 with 118 people on board, had been cleared for takeoff on Runway 16 and the a/c was in the takeoff roll as C-GVLO was getting airborne. The Tower Controller directed ACA 185 to abort and it came to a stop at Taxiway C2. The crew stopped the a/c on the runway and requested the CFR equipment due to hot brakes. Runway 16 was closed for about 35 minutes during the occurrence. OPI - Enforcement UPDATE TSB reported that a review of the ATC tapes and discussion with the Cessna pilot indicate some confusion in his interpretation of the ATC instructions. The A319 had reached 120 knots on the takeoff roll at the time the crew was requested to abort.
