Warbelow's Air Ventures, Inc. hereby gives 90 days' notice, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. § 41734 and 14 C.F.R. Part 323, of its intent to terminate essential air service between Fairbanks and Rampart, Alaska. Warbelow's Air Ventures, Inc. is unable to operate this service economically without a subsidy, and therefore, is filing this notice to advise the Department and the affected communities that it plans to terminate service to Rampart in 90 days. Warbelow's Air Ventures, Inc. is not aware of any other certificated Alaskan air carrier that would implement replacement service to Rampart.
Warbelow's Air Ventures, Inc. currently provides three day per week service between Fairbanks and Rampart, using Cessna 206 aircraft configured with 4 seats, or Piper Chieftain aircraft configured with 9 seats.
The Department made the most recent EAS determination for Rampart by Order 1980-1-167. Warbelow's Air Ventures, Inc. has provided 5 day per week service in recent years, but has reduced it to 3 days per week in an effort to reduce the loss and avoid termination of service.
The population of Rampart has declined dramatically in the last two decades, but has stabilized with a core of year round residents and a larger summer population during the fishing season. For a number of years now, service to Rampart has been unprofitable, but subsidized internally by Warbelow's Air Ventures, Inc. through profitable operations in other geographic areas. Given the recent steep increase in fuel costs, that is no longer possible, and we have reached the difficult but necessary decision to terminate service to Rampart.

OST-2005-20934 - Exemption - Canada-US Scheduled and Charter Passenger Service
June 26, 2008
Trans Capital hereby applies for renewal of its temporary exemption from 49 U.S.C § 41301 authorizing Trans Capital to perform transborder non-scheduled charter flights carrying persons, property and mail between any point or points in Canada and any point or points in the United States pursuant to the February 1995 Bilateral Air Transport Services Agreement between Canada and the United States, as amended. The exemption authority at issue was most recently renewed for a one-year period by Notice of Action Taken issued on July 9, 2007.
Trans Capital requests that the foregoing exemption authority be renewed for a further period of two years, through July 9, 2010, or until 60 days after final action by the Department on a forthcoming application by Trans Capital for grant of a Foreign Air Carrier Permit pursuant to 49 U.S.C. § 41302 authorizing the same broad-scope transborder operations, whichever occurs first.
Trans Capital performs on-demand passenger charter flights within Canada, and between points in Canada and points in Third Counties, and between points in Canada and points in the United States, utilizing a fleet of four leased Canadian-registered DeHavilland Dash 7 aircraft configured to carry 48 passengers. In addition, Trans Capital provides on-demand emergency medical evacuation flights carrying seriously-injured or gravely ill United Nations peacekeeping personnel between Port-au-Prince, Haiti and Miami or Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (and also between Haiti and Santo Domingo, D.R., which also has suitable hospital facilities), pursuant to a recently-renewed three-year contract (June 3, 2008-June 2, 2011) with the United Nations. The Haiti-Miami (or Ft. Lauderdale) on-demand charter flights for the United Nations have been operated pursuant to Trans Capital's exemption authority and a Part 212 Statement of Authorization granting Trans Capital limited special-purpose 5th freedom passenger charter authority pursuant to Part 212 of the Department's Economic Regulations through May 16, 2008.
Trans Capital is concurrently filing an application for issuance of a one-year extension of its prior Statement of Authorization, through June 26, 2009.
