Under Licence No. 883273, the applicant is authorized to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Group C, from a base at Calgary, Alberta.
Notice of the application was published on September 13, 17 and 20, 1991 in the newspapers of the areas concerned and copies of the notice were sent to selected air carriers and to others believed to be interested. No interventions opposing the granting of the application were filed with the Agency.
By letter dated November 18, 1991, the Agency advised the applicant that no opposing interventions had been received and that it should therefore file Section II of its application within one year from the date of the letter.

Accordingly, a new document of licence, bearing Licence No. 883273, will be issued to North American Airlines Ltd.
To make provision for the level of charter domestic service to be consistent with demand anticipated by the applicant and in accordance with the applicant's indicated intentions, the Agency finds it in the public interest to authorize the Licensee to also use fixed wing aircraft in Group E, for the transportation of goods only.
Condition No. 1 of Licence No. 883273 is hereby amended to read:
