Transport Canada has reinstated West Wind Aviation’s Air Operator Certificate for its commuter operations.
The federal agency says in a news release that “West Wind Aviation has addressed Transport Canada’s concerns regarding the deficiencies in its Operational Control System. Transport Canada will closely monitor West Wind Aviation to verify that the company remains compliant with aviation safety regulations.”
Pat Campling Jr., President and CEO of West Wind Aviation says through a release that “we thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this challenging period and look forward to welcoming them back aboard a West Wind Aviation flight in the near future.” He says the company is committed to safety.
West Wind’s Air Aviation Certificate was suspended on December 22, 2017 for the plane crash earlier that month in Fond Du Lac, which left ultimately left one dead and 24 others injured.
Last month, the TSB concluded the plane was not overweight — but said the aircraft was not de-iced before takeoff.
