Transport Canada suspends Air Operator Certificate

July 18, 2011, Winnipeg - Transport Canada has suspended Missinippi Airways' Air Operator Certificate, effective July 15, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. CDT. Without an Air Operator Certificate, a company cannot provide commercial air services in Canada.

This action is based on safety concerns identified during Transport Canada's inspection following the accident in Pukatawagan on July 4, 2011.

Transport Canada has taken this action in the interest of public safety. Transport Canada consulted with Missinippi Airways throughout the period leading up to the suspension. This suspension does not rule out further regulatory action.

Transport Canada will continue to work with Missinippi Airways. The company must demonstrate that it meets all applicable safety regulations before Transport Canada will reissue its Air Operator Certificate.
