Incident at In the vicinity of: FREDERICTON INTL NB (CYFC)


2003-07-02: JZA 7849 (Dash8) departed Fredericton for Ottawa. The FSS specialist correctly readback FL200 as issued by the controller. The FSS relayed the altitude of FL200 to the aircraft, but the FSS did not detect the incorrect readback from the flight crew of FL220. On initial contact with Moncton ACC the pilot reported climbing to FL220. The controller heard the transmission but did not hear who was the source or the content of the transmission. The discrepancy was identified when Boston ACC later queried whether the aircraft was cleared at FL200 as per the estimate and subsequent handoff, or at FL220 as stated by the pilot. TSB - NIL
