Incident at WHITEHORSE/ ERIK NIELSEN INTL (CYXY) (Aerodrome - other)


2000-04-06: At 2036Z, the tower observed a pedestrian walking on Taxiway Echo. A nearby refueller was contacted to intercept the pedestrian. The errant hiker was removed from the taxiway. OPI - Aerodrome Safety UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that the Whitehorse Airport Supervisor of Safety and Security investigated the item and confirmed the CADORS report that a nearby refueller was requested to assist in escorting the individual off of airside. The refueller did so and no other information was taken. RECOMMENDATIONS: Aerodrome Safety believes that the site continues to emphasize the importance of airside safety with the airport tenants and the shortening of the 01 end of the runway over the summer will together significantly improve airside safety at the airport. The site should continue to monitor these type of events to ensure that there is in fact a significant reduction.
