2015-03-05: At approximately 1600Z, the Moncton controller noticed a target, an American corporately registered British Aerospace BAE 146 (N193DD) on a local flight from Summerside, PE (CYSU), departing CYSU and climbing to FL170 without an IFR clearance or talking to anyone. The controller tried to contact the aircraft through the CYSU aerodrome traffic frequency (ATF) without response. The controller then called Charlottetown flight service station (FSS) and the aircraft had just contacted them. Charlottetown FSS was then asked to have the aircraft contact Moncton Centre. The aircraft called and was advised that a clearance to fly above 12500 feet is required in Canada. The pilot did not think he/she had done anything wrong and continued with a VFR approach to Runway 03 at Charlottetown, PE (CYYG). On completion of the approach the aircraft returned to CYSU. At the time there was an IFR traffic released off Runway 21 at CYYG. Charlottetown FSS provided the aircraft registration.
