Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC)

Summary

2003-07-10: C-GHSF, a Mooney 20, was 70 NM west of Calgary (YYC) on a VFR flight from Vernon, BC to Olds-Didsbury (CEA3)when the pilot contacted the Calgary Enroute Controller and advised that he had encountered convective cloud and requested CVFR in order to continue to CEA3. Clearance was provided as requested. The pilot indicated that there was no hole in the cloud and requested to climb to 16,000 feet ASL. The Calgary Terminal Controller vectored C-GHSF to the southeast of YYC so that the pilot could obtain reference to the ground and descend. C-GHSF subsequently descended VFR and was vectored to CEA3, where he landed without incident at 2201Z.
