Re: Buffalo Airways Air Operator Certificate Revoked by Transport Canada
I don't think the company was overly starved for money. They have the primary firefighting contract for the north as well as being the main cargo supplier to all the northern communities and they are running less expensive radial engine aircraft. I know one of the issues is that they were using over-sized tanks on their fuel hauls. They've been using the same tanks for 35 years, but never adjusted to modern regulations. I'm sure there are a few infractions such as this, but better not to speculate. I hope they'll get back on track.
