2019-04-23: A Jazz de Havilland DHC-8-402 (C-FSRW/JZA8064) from Victoria, BC (CYYJ) to Vancouver, BC (CYVR), at 3 000 feet, reported a traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS) resolution advisory (RA) with a southbound Pacific Professional Flight Centre Ltd. Cessna 172N from Vancouver/Boundary Bay, BC (CZBB) to Vancouver/Boundary Bay, BC (CZBB) that was at 3 500 feet. Traffic was passed and both aircraft had each other in sight.
2019-08-21: Update TSB #A19P0046: C-FSRW, a Bombardier DHC-8-400 aircraft operated by Jazz Aviation LP, was conducting flight JZA8064 from Victoria Intl (CYYJ), BC to Vancouver Intl (CYVR), BC with 4 crew members and 51 passengers on board. Prior to being cleared for the visual approach to Runway 26R at CYVR, JZA8064 was on an assigned heading and was level at 3000 feet ASL in Visual Meteorological Conditions (VMC). ATC advised the flight crew of a VFR traffic in the vicinity that was assigned an altitude of 3500 feet ASL (C-GZTI, a Cessna 172N aircraft operated by Pacific Professional Flight Centre, from Qualicum Beach (CAT4), BC to Vancouver/Boundary Bay (CZBB), BC with 1 pilot and 1 passenger on board). Similarly, C-GZTI was notified by ATC of the presence and position of JZA8064. The flight crew of JZA8064 received a TCAS TA in response to the VFR traffic, followed by a TCAS RA to MONITOR VERTICAL SPEED. C-GZTI had been warned by ATC of possible wake turbulence from JZA8064, and was instructed to descend to 2000 feet when ready. C-GZTI initiated a descent, shown on radar passing 0.5 nm to the right and 400 feet above JZA8064 at its closest point. Although a TCAS RA activated, no avoidance manoeuver was initiated. The event was captured by Jazz’s SMS.
