APPLICATION by Sioux Air Ltd. for a further suspension of Licence No. 890133 in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group C.

File No. M4205/S66-4-1

Docket No. 930679


Sioux Air Ltd. (hereinafter the Licensee) has applied to the National Transportation Agency for the suspension set out in the title. The application was received on May 13, 1993.

Under Licence No. 890133, the Licensee is authorized to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Groups A, B and C, from a base at Sioux Lookout, Ontario, between April 1 and October 31 of each year.

The Agency has reviewed the application and considers it appropriate to further suspend Licence No. 890133 in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group C.

Licence No. 890133 in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group C is hereby suspended pursuant to subsection 75(2) of the National Transportation Act, 1987, R.S.C., 1985, c. 28 (3rd Supp.) (hereinafter the NTA, 1987).

To reinstate the suspended service, the Licensee is hereby required to file an application by no later than June 20, 1994. 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 that portion of the licence which is suspended.

With respect to the request to suspend the service until August 1993, the Licensee may file an application whenever it is willing and able to reinstate the service.

Alternatively, if no application is filed, the Licensee is required to show cause, by no later than June 20, 1994, why its licence in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group C 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 service using fixed wing aircraft in Group C authorized under Licence No. 890133, the Licensee ceases to have the qualifications necessary for the issuance of the licence and/or has contravened section 98 of the NTA, 1987.

This Decision shall form part of Licence No. 890133 and shall remain affixed thereto as long as the said Decision is in force.
