WHEREAS under Licence No. 882874, Venture Air Ltd. (hereinafter the Licensee) is authorized to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Group A, from a base at Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan;

AND WHEREAS under Licence No. 882875, the Licensee is authorized to operate a Class 9-4 Charter non-scheduled international service using fixed wing aircraft in Group A;

AND WHEREAS under Licence No. 882876, the Licensee is authorized to operate a domestic service;

AND WHEREAS by registered letter dated November 21, 1995, Licence Nos. 882874, 882875 and 882876 were suspended pursuant to subsections 75(1) and 97(1), as applicable, of the National Transportation Act, 1987, R.S.C., 1985, c. 28 (3rd Supp.) (hereinafter the NTA, 1987), for failure by the Licensee to file with the National Transportation Agency a valid certificate of insurance. The Licensee was required to show cause within twenty-one (21) days from the date of the letter why Licence Nos. 882874, 882875 and 882876 should not be cancelled pursuant to subsections 75(1) and 97(1), as applicable, of the NTA, 1987;

AND WHEREAS by letter received December 13, 1995, the Licensee has requested the suspension of Licence Nos. 882874, 882875 and 882876;

AND WHEREAS the Agency has reviewed the matter and considers it appropriate to suspend Licence Nos. 882874, 882875 and 882876.

NOW THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED THAT:

  1. Licence Nos. 882874, 882875 and 882876 are hereby suspended pursuant to subsections 75(2) and 97(2), as applicable, of the NTA, 1987.
  2. To reinstate the suspended services, the Licensee is hereby required to file an application by no later than December 30, 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. Alternatively, if no application is filed, the Licensee is required to show cause, by no later than December 30, 1996, why its licences should not be cancelled pursuant to subsections 75(1) and 97(1), as applicable, 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. 882874, 882875 and 882876 and shall remain affixed thereto as long as the said Order is in force.
