WestWind Aviation of Saskatoon, SK has announced the acquisition of aircraft and facility assets from La Ronge-based Osprey Wings Ltd.
Included in the sale are four Twin Otters (as well as a single Beech 200, and two Beech 1900's) and Osprey employees have joined the WestWind organization. At this time, none of the former Osprey aircraft have yet been re-registered to WestWind, however that information will be published once it becomes available.
Coincidentally however today is the first time that the previous Osprey Twin Otter aircraft are appearing on flight trackers using the WestWind WEW designator. Previously, the Osprey aircraft had operated using their registrations as call signs.
