Significant Factors

Summary

  1. A significant number of pilots were operating on the flight service frequency, which made it difficult for crews to report their positions or exchange information for traffic avoidance.
  2. The crew of the DHC-8 did not report their intention to change flight level to the flight service officer.
  3. The crew of the C130 did not report the Mount Sandon position to the flight service officer.
  4. The crew of the C130 was unable to contact the crew of the DHC-8 to arrange separation between the aircraft, due to frequency congestion.
  5. The crew of the C130 did not report that the aircraft was maintaining FL130 to the radar controller after previously reporting leaving that level.
  6. The flight service officer did not provide directed traffic information in accordance with MATS.
  7. The flight service officer assumed that the DHC-8 had entered controlled airspace and subsequently provided unverified information to the crew of the C130.
  8. The crew of the C130 received incorrect traffic information on the DHC-8.
