Transair (Australia) Air Operator`s Certificate suspended
27 November 2006

The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) decided to suspend the Air Operator`s Certificate held by Lessbrook Pty Ltd trading as Transair on the grounds that CASA has reason to believe the operator had engaged, may be engaging and was likely to engage in conduct constituting, contributing to or resulting in a serious and imminent risk to air safety. In accordance with section 30DC of the Civil Aviation Act, the suspension will end 5 business days after the day on which the operator was notified of the suspension, unless CASA makes an application to the Federal Court within that time for an order that would, in effect, continue the suspension, allowing CASA additional time to complete its investigation. Transair was formally notified of the decision to suspend its Air Operators Certificate on Monday, 27 November 2006. (CASA)
