APPLICATION by Forestland Helicopter Services Ltd. for suspension of Licence No. 920202.

File No. M4205/F105-5-1

Docket No. 952103


Forestland Helicopter Services Ltd. (hereinafter the Licensee) has applied to the National Transportation Agency for the suspension set out in the title. The application was received on December 12, 1995.

Under Licence No. 920202, the Licensee is authorized to operate a domestic service.

The Agency has reviewed the application and considers it appropriate to suspend Licence No. 920202.

Licence No. 920202 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 December 30, 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 licence.

With respect to the request to suspend the licence until the spring of 1996, 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 December 30, 1996, why its licence 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 for which the licence is issued, 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. 920202 and shall remain affixed thereto as long as the said Decision is in force.
