Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC) (Overshoot/missed approach, Navigation error, Conflict - potential)


2005-02-03: UPDATE TSB reported that the Morgan Air Services Cessna 172, C-GUSE, was sequenced to land on Runway 25 at Calgary Intl (CYYC) following a solo training flight to Drumheller, AB. When the aircraft was on a 1.5 mile final, Calgary Tower inquired if the pilot could land and hold short of Runway 16, with 3,805 feet available. After the pilot accepted the restriction, Tower cleared JGO 192, a Jetsgo DC-9-83 (MD-83), for takeoff on Runway 16. The pilot of C-GUSE had difficulty stopping his aircraft in the landing distance available, and aborted the landing. JGO 192 passed through the intersection at about 400 feet above the runway when C-GUSE was about 1,000 feet short of the intersection, at about 57 kts. C-GUSE circled to the west of the airport and eventually landed on Runway 10. A similar land and hold short (LAHSO) related incident occurred at CYYC in June, 2004 (A04W0116). Nav Canada and Transport Canada will conduct joint meetings with CYYC based flight schools in order to address LAHSO issues involving student pilots.
2005-01-26: The pilot of C-GUSE, a Cessna 172, was cleared to land on Runway 25 at Calgary and was instructed to hold short of Runway 16; the pilot read back the hold short instruction. The crew of JGO 102, an MD-83, was cleared for takeoff on Runway 16 and the crew was informed of the Cessna 172 landing on Runway 25 with a hold short instruction. After the Cessna touched down approximately 2,000 feet west of the threshold of Runway 25, the pilot advised that he would not be able to hold short of Runway 16. At this time, the MD-83 was airborne and approximately 300 feet AGL. The Cessna 172 overshot, climbed runway heading and operated to the west of the airport for a period of time before landing on Runway 10. TSB will be looking into the incident.
