File Nos. M4205/W2-4-1
Docket Nos. 951946
Waglisla Air Inc. carrying on business as Wag Air (hereinafter the Licensee) has applied to the National Transportation Agency for the suspension set out in the title. The application was received on November 17, 1995.
Under Licence No. 882547, the Licensee is authorized to operate a Class 4 Charter domestic service using fixed wing aircraft in Groups A and B, from a base at Bella Bella, British Columbia.
Under Licence No. 882548, the Licensee is authorized to operate a domestic service.
Under Licence No. 882549, the Licensee is authorized to operate a Class 9-4 Charter non-scheduled international service using fixed wing aircraft in Group B. The Licensee is restricted to flights originating at or terminating at a point or points outside the designated area.
Under Licence No. 940275, the Licensee is authorized to operate a scheduled international service serving the points Prince Rupert (Seal Cove Seaplane Base), British Columbia, Canada and Ketchikan (Harbour Seaplane Base), Alaska, U.S.A.
By Decision No. 714-A-1994 dated November 3, 1994, Licence No. 882547 in respect of the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Group A was suspended pursuant to subsection 75(2) of the National Transportation Act, 1987, R.S.C., 1985, c. 28 (3rd Supp.) (hereinafter the NTA, 1987).
The Agency has reviewed the application and considers it appropriate to suspend Licence No. 882547, 882548, 882549 and 940275.
Licence Nos. 882547, 882548, 882549 and 940275 are hereby suspended pursuant to subsections 75(2), 92(2) and 97(2), as applicable, of the NTA, 1987.
To reinstate the suspended services, the Licensee is hereby required to file an application by no later than December 2, 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.
Alternatively, if no application is filed, the Licensee is required to show cause, by no later than December 2, 1996, why its licences should not be cancelled pursuant to subsections 75(1), 92(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 Decision shall form part of Licence Nos. 882547, 882548, 882549 and 940275 and shall remain affixed thereto as long as the said Decision is in force.
