THUNDER BAY – Wasaya Airways LP is reporting on some incidents that happened over the past two weeks.
Wasaya states, “On the evening of November 7th, Wasaya Airways Flight WT992 departed from Sioux Lookout to Thunder Bay. Immediately after takeoff, the crew noticed vibrations throughout the aircraft. The crew returned the aircraft to Sioux Lookout successfully with an uneventful landing. Upon landing, the crew discovered the cargo door had opened which caused the vibrations.
“Along with six guests there was one flight crew member in the passenger cabin and two flight crew members on board. At no time were any of the guests or crew in danger. Guests were debriefed and accommodated on a flight home that same evening. Wasaya Airways is working with Transport Canada to determine what caused the cargo door to open.”
Additionally, Wasaya reports, that “On November 1st, two crew members aboard Hawker Flight 801 aborted takeoff due to a warning light that came on in the cabin. The flight ended at the end of the runway, there was no aircraft damage and no one was hurt. It was reported to Transport Canada and proper safety protocols were followed. The aircraft was cleared and continued to fly later in the day as it was found to be a false fire alarm”.
Earlier this fall, Wasaya reported the company was downsizing.
Wasaya had an issue with a passenger door on a flight to Sachigo Lake back in April.
