Jazz CRJ9 and Westjet B737 at Toronto on May 3rd 2012, loss of separation
Last Update: May 7, 2012 / 21:24:03 GMT/Zulu time
About the same time a Westjet Boeing 737-700, registration C-FWBL performing flight WS-659 from Toronto,ON to Winnipeg,MB (Canada), departed Toronto's runway 05 and was in the initial climb already handed off to departure, when the CRJ-705 made a turn to the left without clearance causing the separation between the two aircraft to be lost. Tower instructed the Canadair crew to stop the climb at 2000 feet, in the first attempt calling Jazz 691 and repeating with correct callsign Jazz 619 (QK-8619) in the second attempt, and after the crew acknowledged handed the aircraft off to departure.
The Canadian TSB reported the horizontal separation between the two aircraft reduced to approximately 1nm without stating remaining vertical separation, however confirming required separation between the aircraft was lost. The CRJ was instructed to stop the climb at 2000 feet and turn right to resolve the conflict.
Both aircraft continued to their destinations for safe landings.
