There were two Near Mid Air collisions reported to the FAA in the last reporting period that ran from November 10, 2022, to December 8, 2022.


November 9, 2022: At the Scottsdale Airport (SDL), a Cessna Citation circled to the incorrect runway while on approach from the northwest, resulting in a loss of separation with a Beechcraft BE40 that was departing westbound. The closest proximity was 0.14 NM and 300 feet vertical.


November 27, 2022: At the Phoenix Gateway Airport (IWA), an Embraer Legacy E545 jet was on final for RWY12R when the aircraft reported a drone passing over their wing, and nearly hitting them while they were on descent for a landing at IWA. The aircraft did not take evasive action.
