The issue I raised in the original thread on this subject was that the incident was not reported immediately to (DX-FLTOPS) so that DFDR and CVR could be re-covered. As well it appears that 2 EGPWS warnings and an GA at 39 ft did not warrant suitable notification as a "reportable incident" to the TSB. Am I to assume (ass out of you and me) that the TSB investigation was initiated by media and social media reports (and pictures) of the approach?
1.11 Flight recorders
The aircraft is equipped with a digital flight data recorder (DFDR) and a cockpit voice recorder (CVR). Because the occurrence was originally assessed by WestJet as a non-reportable event, it was not reported directly to the TSB. The CVR and the DFDR data were overwritten and were not available to the investigation.
The quick access recorder (QAR) data file was sent to the TSB laboratory for analysis. QAR data is recorded by the aircraft's digital flight data acquisition and management unit, which stores the data on a Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) card for flight data monitoring (FDM) purposes. The data on the card is an exact duplicate of that collected by the DFDR; however, the DFDR is crash-protected whereas the QAR is not, and the latter typically holds many more hours of data.
