APPLICATION by Sabourin Lake Airways Limited for authority to also use fixed wing aircraft in Group D under Licence No. 900137.

File No. M4205-S3-4-2

Docket No. 90443


Sabourin Lake Airways Limited (hereinafter the applicant) has applied to the National Transportation Agency to operate the service set out in the title. The application was received on May 25, 1990.

Under Licence No. 900137, the applicant is authorized to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Groups A, B and C, from a base at Pickle Lake, Ontario.

Notice of the application was posted at the post office of Pickle Lake 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 August 23, 1990, 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 has now filed Section II of its application in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group D for the transportation of goods only. The Agency has reviewed the material filed and is satisfied that the applicant meets the requirements set out in paragraph 72(2)(a) of the National Transportation Act, 1987, R.S.C., 1985, c. 28 (3rd Supp.) in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group D for the transportation of goods only.

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 also use fixed wing aircraft in Group D.

Accordingly, Condition No. 1 of Licence No. 900137 is hereby amended to read:

The Licensee is authorized to use fixed wing aircraft in Groups A, B, C and D (limited to the transportation of goods only in Group D).

Accordingly, a new document of licence, bearing Licence No. 900137, will be issued to Sabourin Lake Airways Limited.
