First AT42 at Pagnirtung on Dec 9th 2020, unexpected ground proximity alert due to wrong weather data
Last Update: December 11, 2020 / 21:19:00 GMT/Zulu time
Canada's TSB reported Flight Information Service accidentally reported the weather data of CYPX (Puvirnituq) instead of CYXP (Pagnirtung), which provided a different altimeter setting. In the descent the crew received a terrain proximity warning. As there were VFR conditions there was no real risk of a collision with terrain. The crew received the correct altimeter settings from UNICOM Pagnirtung about 20nm out and continued for a safe landing.
