Incident at SAINT JOHN NB (CYSJ)


2003-09-02: At 1615Z the Halifax FIC received an Arrival message from the Saint John FSS advising that N45SD a PA34 had arrived VFR at 1549Z from Bar Harbour Maine and that hey had no VFR flight plan information on this flight. The Halifax FIC did not have a VFR flight plan for this flight. The aircraft violated Canadian Airspace by entering without an active flight plan. The pilot called the Halifax FIC at 1611Z to obtain an AWBS weather briefing; he asked if it is mandatory to file a flight plan within Canada, and whether it is mandatory to file to cross into Canada from the United States. The FIC Specialist advised the pilot it is mandatory to file a flight plan to cross into or out of the United States, and that it is always advisable to file for flights wholly within Canada as well. The pilot then filed a VFR flight plan from CYSJ to CCQ3 with Halifax FIC.
