APPLICATION by Aviation Batiscan Inc. for suspension of Licence No. 900277 in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group A for a period of one (1) year.

File No. M4205/A426-4-1

Docket No. 910761


Aviation Batiscan Inc. has applied to the National Transportation Agency for the suspension set out in the title. The application was received on July 5, 1991.

Under Licence No. 900277, the Licensee is authorized to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Groups A and B, between May 1 and November 1 of each year, from a base at Lac Sept-Iles, St-Raymond, Quebec.

The Agency has reviewed the application and considers it appropriate to suspend Licence No. 900277 in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group A.

Licence No. 900277 in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group A is hereby suspended pursuant to subsection 75(2) of the National Transportation Act, 1987, R.S.C., 1985, c. 28 (3rd Supp.).

To reinstate the suspended service, the Licensee is hereby required to file an application by no later than July 17, 1992. 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.

Alternatively, if no application is filed, the Licensee is required to show cause by no later than July 17, 1992 why its licence in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group A should not be cancelled pursuant to subsection 75(1) of the National Transportation Act, 1987, as failure to meet any of the above requirements and to have filed a valid certificate of insurance would give reasonable grounds to the Agency to believe that, in respect of the service using fixed wing aircraft in Group A authorized under Licence No. 900277, the Licensee ceases to have the qualifications necessary for the issuance of the licence and/or has contravened section 98 of the National Transportation Act, 1987.

This Decision shall form part of Licence No. 900277 and shall remain affixed thereto as long as the said Decision is in force.
