Transport Canada reinstates West Wind Aviation’s AOC after suspension following accident
9 May 2018

Transport Canada has reinstated West Wind Aviation’s Air Operator Certificate (AOC) for its commuter operations after a review of the company’s operations.

The reinstatement is effective immediately and allows the company to provide commercial air service in Canada.

West Wind Aviation has addressed Transport Canada’s concerns regarding the deficiencies in its Operational Control System. Transport Canada states it will closely monitor West Wind Aviation to verify that the company remains compliant with aviation safety regulations.

On December 22, 2017, Transport Canada suspended West Wind Aviation’s AOC because of deficiencies in the company’s Operational Control System that were discovered during an inspection following a December 13 fatal accident involving an ATR 42.
