Incident at Churchill, MB


1999-07-05: The crew of C-FZPW, a Beech King Air, had requested an IFR clearance to depart from Churchill for Rankin Inlet at 2142Z. Clearance was issued with a couple of restrictions for conflicting traffic, one of which involved another a/c at 13,000 feet enroute from Calgary to Iqaluit. The restriction required C-FZPW to cross 25 NM north of Churchill at 12,000 feet or less to avoid a conflict. The crew of C-FZPW then requested VFR clearance, which was authorized and the crew instructed to contact Winnipeg ACC when 20 miles north of Churchill. C-FXPW departed at 2146Z and the crew later contacted ACC reporting level at 15,500 feet. The crew was advised they had flown into Class B airspace without a clearance and they were issued an IFR clearance to Rankin Inlet at FL 230. In the process of climbing to 15,500 feet, C-FZPW conflicted with the other a/c transiting the area at 13,000 feet, resulting in a loss of separation. OPI - Enforcement
