IN THE MATTER OF the operation of a domestic service and a Class 4 Charter domestic service by Geraldton Air Ltd. - Licence Nos. 920191 and 920192.

File Nos. M4205/G108-5-1
M4205/G108-4-1


WHEREAS under Licence No. 920191, Geraldton Air Ltd. (hereinafter the Licensee) is authorized to operate a domestic service;

AND WHEREAS under Licence No. 920192, the Licensee is authorized to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Groups A and C, from a base at Geraldton, Ontario;

AND WHEREAS by Order No. 1994-A-26 dated January 31, 1994, Licence Nos. 920191 and 920192 were suspended pursuant to subsection 75(2) of the National Transportation Act, 1987, R.S.C., 1985, c. 28 (3rd Supp.);

AND WHEREAS by letter received January 20, 1995, the Licensee has requested the suspension of Licence Nos. 920191 and 920192;

AND WHEREAS the Agency has reviewed the matter and considers it appropriate to suspend Licence Nos. 920191 and 920192.

NOW THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED THAT:

  1. Licence Nos. 920191 and 920192 are hereby suspended pursuant to subsection 75(2) of the NTA, 1987.
  2. To reinstate the suspended services, the Licensee is hereby required to file an application by no later than January 31, 1996. When the Agency is satisfied, based upon material on file or from information specifically requested from the Licensee, that the Licensee is Canadian, holds a Canadian aviation document (operating certificate) and has filed a valid certificate of insurance, the Agency shall reinstate the suspended licences.
  3. With respect to the request to suspend the licences until May 15, 1995, the Licensee may file an application whenever it is willing and able to reinstate the services.
  4. Alternatively, if no application is filed, the Licensee is required to show cause, by no later than January 31, 1996, why its licences should not be cancelled pursuant to subsection 75(1) of the NTA, 1987, as failure to meet any of the above requirements would give reasonable grounds to the Agency to believe that, in respect of the services for which the licences are issued, the Licensee ceases to have the qualifications necessary for the issuance of the licences and/or has contravened section 98 of the NTA, 1987.

This Order shall form part of Licence Nos. 920191 and 920192 and shall remain affixed thereto as long as the said Order is in force.
