Incident at Villeneuve, AB (Conflict - near collision (VFR or IFR))


1999-07-21: Two Cessna 172s, C-GDIO and C-GXAA, were in the pattern at Villeneuve when a near-collision occurred. It was reported that the solo pilot in C-GDIO cut across the path of C-GXAA with an instructor and student, requiring evasive action to be taken by the instructor. Both a/c had completed 2 or 3 circuits, with C-GDIO following C-GXAA. As the pilot of C-GDIO was climbing out after a touch and go, he apparently lost track of the position of C-GXAA and turned inside C-GXAA, which had turned to the downwind leg. The renter pilot in C-GDIO was counselled by staff at the flying club concerning vigilance in a busy traffic area. OPI - System Safety
