Incident at PAULATUK NT (CYPC) (Communication error, Aircraft navigation/communication equipment)


2003-11-04: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the operator advised that the #2 Comm was not transmitting and it was subsequently replaced. The #1 comm was serviceable but the crew had ""figure trouble"". After landing and before the next flight, they determined that they did not have the switches in the correct position.
2003-08-18: AKK 101, a Beech King Air 100, entered the traffic pattern at Paulatuk as C-FMPL was preparing for takeoff. No calls had been received by the CARS operator on the Mandatory Frequency advising of AKK 101's arrival. C-FMPL waited and departed after AKK 101 had safely landed and cleared the runway. The pilot of AKK 101 came to see the CARS operator after landing to state he had made numerous broadcasts as he was approaching but got no answer. It appears AKK 101 suffered a communication failure because the CARS operator had been talking to the other aircraft with no difficulty.
