I saw a Wasaya HS.748 at YWG today, and I was wondering if anyone knows what it was doing there. I would assume it's contract hauling freight, would it be for Royal Cargo? What route exactly would it be flying, and what other routes does Wasaya fly? Thanks.
Wasaya Corporation was founded as a First Nation business enterprise in 1989. The ownership of the Corporation is vested in eight communities, which are located in some 300 miles north of Thunder Bay. In addition to providing services to the owner communities, Wasaya Corporation seeks to ensure that significant income flows back to the communities.
The Corporations main activity is Wasaya Airways, which operates an extensive airfreight network in Northern Ontario and Manitoba. The current freight fleet consist of four Caravans (C208), and four Hawker Siddeley 748’s. The airline also operated one Beech 1900D and one Pilatus PC-12 on other services and charter flights. The airline has bases in Pickle Lake, Red Lake, Sioux Lookout, and Thunder Bay
