Airprox, Rolladen-Schneider LS4-b, PH-1274 and Cessna 208B, PH-SPT, near Apeldoorn

Status : Closed

PH-1274, a Rolladen-Schneider LS4-b, took off from Teuge International Airport (hereinafter: Teuge) at around 11.55 hours, for a local flight. The pilot was the only occupant of the glider. After a flight of around one hour, he decided to return to Teuge, to land. PH-SPT, a Cessna 208B, took off at around 12.55 hours from Teuge, for a local flight during which parachutists would be dropped. On board were the pilot and eighteen parachutists. Following takeoff from Runway 26, the aircraft ascended in a westerly direction and made a right-hand turn at an altitude of around 600 feet, from where it continued to climb in a northerly direction, approximately parallel to the A50 motorway. According to the pilot, the aircraft was flying in a high pitch attitude as a consequence of which the pilot (of the aircraft) probably failed to see the glider. The pilot of the LS4-b immediately carried out a descending left turn, to avoid the aircraft. Shortly afterwards, the other aircraft flew straight over the LS4-b. The pilot estimated the vertical separation between the two aircraft as less than 30 metres.

The LS4-b was equipped with a so-called FLARM system that generates a warning when another aircraft, also equipped with FLARM, is on a collision course. The system had issued no warning. The Cessna 208B was not yet equipped with FLARM.
