Incident at WINNIPEG / JAMES ARMSTRONG RICHARDSON INTL MB (CYWG) (ATS operating irregularity)
2001-03-26: UPDATE ANS and Airspace reported that NAV CANADA will convene a Fact Finding Board.
2001-01-31: Raven 9, a Bell 206, departed Winnipeg International Airport on a VFR flight plan to Portage La Prairie (Southport) and after arrival, Portage Operations called Winnipeg FSS at 1515Z to close the flight plan. Winnipeg FSS did not have an activation of the flight plan, which had been faxed to FSS by the pilot. A subsequent investigation revealed that Winnipeg OSS (Operational Support Service) had not included the term ""RQD"" as required on the flight strip sent to Tower, which resulted in Tower not advising OSS when the helicopter departed.
