Transport Canada suspends Orca Airways’ Air Operator Certificate over safety issues
17 March 2018

On March 15, Transport Canada suspended Orca Airways Air Operator Certificate (AOC) over safety issues.

Transport Canada reported in a statement that it took this enforcement action due to Orca Airways’ repeated non-compliance with aviation safety regulations.
The department identified several areas where the company is not meeting regulatory requirements including maintenance, operational control, documentation, and quality assurance.

Transport Canada will not allow Orca Airways to resume its commercial air service until it proves it can keep its operations consistently compliant with aviation safety regulations.

The airline provides scheduled commercial service, cargo, and charter services out of Vancouver, Canada, using a fleet of Piper PA-31-350 Chieftains, Swearingen Merlin IV/Metroliners, and a Beechcraft 100 King Air.
