Incident at HIGH LEVEL AB (CYOJ)
2005-01-14: C-FAPW, a Cessna 210, was on a VFR flight from La Crete, AB to High Level. The pilot reported inbound (1721Z) for a landing and was advised by FSS that he would need an IFR clearance to land since the weather was below SVFR (sequence: 0000 1/4SM FG BKN 230 RMK FG4 CI1). The pilot advised he would overfly the airport and FSS gave him the control zone dimensions so the aircraft could be kept clear. At 1732Z the pilot reported over the airport at 4,000 feet, which put the aircraft in the zone so the pilot climbed to 4,500 feet and continued eastbound. At 1737Z, the pilot reported 5 southeast of the airport at 3,500 feet awaiting the arrival of an IFR aircraft before deciding what to do next. No impact on other aircraft.
2005-01-26: UPDATE It was later reported by Nav Canada that the pilot was a student pilot en route to High Level from La Crete to pick up his instructor. He arrived over High Level on top of a low-level fog bank and was unable to land. After leaving the airport zone, he returned to La Crete. It is not known if he received a weather briefing prior to the flight.
