2003-04-09: UPDATE ANS and Airspace reported that Nav Canada plans no futher action concerning this incident.
2003-04-07: UPDATE TSB reported that the Beech 200 was inbound IFR to Lloydminster from Calgary and was cleared to descend to 6,000 feet ASL because of traffic, which was a Bell 206, call sign TEST 364, doing IFR approaches at 5,000 feet ASL and below. The Beech pilot was advised of the traffic and indicated he would cancel IFR when closer to the destination. The pilot was then advised to contact the local Flight Service Station (FSS) and advise them when cancelling IFR. The Beech 200 landed on Runway 07 at 1820 UTC without cancelling his IFR flight plan, while TEST 364 was on final approach for Runway 25. TEST 364 did a missed approach at 1822 UTC and then landed uneventfully on the second attempt. The pilot of both aircraft had visual contact with each other and there was no risk of collision, however, there was an Operating Irregularity when the Beech pilot did not cancel his IFR plan, and two aircraft were both on an IFR approach at the same time.
2003-04-04: C-GYSC, a Beech King Air 200, was IFR inbound to Lloydminster (YLL) from Calgary and the crew was cleared to descend to 6,000 feet. Traffic was TEST 364, a military Bell 206, which was doing IFR approaches at 5,000 feet and below. The crew of C-GYSC was informed of the traffic and they advised that they would cancel IFR when they were closer to the airport. They were instructed to contact FSS and advise them that they were cancelling IFR. The flight subsequently landed without cancelling IFR. C-GYSC landed on Runway 07 while TEST 364 was opposite-direction on final for Runway 25. TEST 364 then did a missed approach. The crew of C-GYSC later called Edmonton ACC and acknowledged that they had forgotten to cancle IFR. An Operating Irregularity occurred when two IFR aircraft conducted approaches simultaneously, although it appears that it was a pilot-induced irregularity.
