Incident at Edmonton, AB

Summary

1999-06-14: KUGR 12, a CF-18, departed Edmonton on a training flight to CFB Cold Lake and the pilot was cleared to FL 310. The a/c was observed climbing through FL 310 to FL 334. Controllers were initially unsuccessful in contacting the pilot, although the pilot later reported being able to hear the transmissions, but being unable to contact ACC. Contact with the pilot was re-established and the flight was re-cleared to FL 290 to accommodate an approach of another a/c into Fort McMurray. The instructor pilot in KUGR 12 later contacted the Shift Manager at Edmonton ACC and reviewed the occurrence. Apparently there is a known deficiency in the radios in the CF-18 and improved equipment has been promised. No other a/c were affected by the occurrence. OPI - System Safety
