936430 Ontario Limited carrying on business as Timberidge Air and Outposts (hereinafter the applicant) has applied to the National Transportation Agency for a licence to operate the service set out in the title. The application was received on June 21, 1991 and was complete and ready for processing on July 19, 1991.

Notice of the application was posted in the post office of Nakina 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 October 9, 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.

The applicant met the requirements of the Agency in respect of the Group B authority; and accordingly, a licence was issued to 936430 Ontario Limited carrying on business as Timberidge Air and Outposts authorizing it to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Group B only from a base at Nakina, Ontario between April 15 and November 30 of each year.

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 use fixed wing aircraft in Groups A and B.

Condition No. 1 of Licence No. 920171 is hereby amended to read:

The Licensee is authorized to use fixed wing aircraft in Groups A and B.
