Incident at SAINT JOHN NB (CYSJ) (TCAS alert)


2001-10-18: Update October 16, 2001. General Aviation. CADORS Narrative Update: The PIC was a flight instructor conducting a training flight. All appropriate and correct radio calls and procedures were carried out. No further follow up action is required by MART.
2001-03-22: C-GYRI C172 departed runway 32 at 1537 for a local VFR flight over Long Island training area at an altitude of 3.0. ARN862, while taxing, was given traffic as a C172 departing and heading North for a local VFR flight. At 1540 FSS requested an altitude check from C-GYRI. C-GYRI responded - 3.0 over Long Island. ARN862 departed runway 32 at 1542. ARN862 reported clear of the circuit and C-GYRI responded with a report of coming up on Long Island level 3.0. At 1545 ARN862 reported he took evasive action to avoid a C172 which showed up on his TCAS while he was on the climb out. The traffic was determined to be C-GYRI which the Air Nova pilot expected to be North of the airport when it was actually more Northwest of the airport and closer to his climb out path than anticipated. Saint John FSS will complete TCAS report form. TSB case closed with more to follow.
