Heron Aviation is pleased to announce the expansion of their operational capabilities with the appointment of a Canadian Foreign Air Operator Certificate (FAOC) under approval number 12839. Effective immediately, Heron Aviation is approved to provide commercial air transport to all international airports in Canada, allowing customers both current and new limitless access to the best of what Canada has to offer.
The firm is honoured to add this capability to their operational portfolio and provide all clients with seamless and unfettered access to Canada. In tandem with the company’s FAA Part 129 Certification, Heron Aviation can proudly present itself to clients as a truly worldwide operator with expertise in operating to the furthest points across the globe.
The Canadian Foreign Air Operator approval process consists of an intensive review undertaken by Transport Canada. Special consideration is paid to the harsh winter conditions present in the country, with strict standards related to thorough De- & Anti-Icing procedures.
Working closely with the Transport Canada authorities and personnel, Heron Aviation achieved its FAOC in record time, demonstrating a superbly high level of regulatory cooperation. Heron Aviation’s experience and expertise in the region was evident as the company’s application was approved weeks ahead of normal processing times.
Martin Helbling, Accountable Manager Heron Aviation, had the following to add: “This regulatory approval further signifies the extensive and thorough cooperation we have with authorities both home and abroad. Our ability to mobilise our staff and resources quickly allows us to immediately respond to any client request, whatever the need. At Heron Aviation, we like to open doors for our clients, and we’re very proud to have been one of the fastest approvals for a Canadian Foreign Air Operator Certificate ever.”
