Summary

On 14 February 2007 at about 1127 Eastern Daylight-saving Time, the pilot of a Cessna Aircraft Company 182T (182) was positioning to conduct a sector entry for an area navigation (RNAV) global navigation satellite system (GNSS) arrival procedure to runway 06 at Camden Aerodrome, NSW. The aircraft was approaching the aerodrome from the east. At the same time, the pilot of a Cessna Aircraft Company 210L (210) was approaching Camden from the south-west with the intention of conducting a Camden runway 06 straight-in RNAV (GNSS) approach. The two aircraft had similar estimated times of arrival at the approach commencement waypoint. They were both being operated under the instrument flight rules (IFR), in Class G airspace.

The air traffic controller provided the pilots with mutual radar based traffic information. The pilot of the 210 contacted the controller and was provided with traffic information about the 182. The pilot of the 182 climbed the aircraft to minimise the risk of a collision as he was unsure of the intentions of the pilot of the 210. Recorded radar data showed that, when the aircraft passed, there was 500 ft vertically and 2.1 NM laterally between them.
