West Wind Aviation Selects RocketRoute

We are delighted to welcome West Wind Aviation, a unique airline which has chosen RocketRoute to be their flight planning provider.

West Wind Aviation operate charter and private flights, serving passengers, cargo deliveries and all corporate and leisure needs throughout the vastness of the Saskatchewan and Nunavut Territories. Renowned in Canada, it is a diverse company with a fleet of 31 aircraft featuring nine different types, including five ATR 42-300s.

“When we began the search for a new flight planning system, we wanted a program that offered advanced aircraft modelling for various flight profiles and aircraft configurations, central access to flight plans and data for ease of system maintenance and dispatch handovers, and the ability to integrate with our flight scheduling system,”
said Owen Scott, Chief Flight Dispatcher at West Wind. ”RocketRoute was very helpful and engaged when we began reaching out and walked with us through the process of testing and development of specific criteria to suit our operational needs and our operating environment. We are very excited to be working with RocketRoute as we forge ahead in developing our dispatch system.”

West Wind is also an employee-owned, First Nations company. An unusual structure that is deemed vital to the impressive and on-going expansion of the 34-year-old airline. Apart from its ever-growing fleet, West Wind provides airport terminal services for international flights from three airports. The company also provides a 24×7 air ambulance service for all of North America.

RocketRoute sales manager, Christina Tsegenko commented, “We are delighted to work with West Wind Aviation and feel particularly honoured to take care of their mixed fleet of aircraft. We are expanding globally and working with West Wind Aviation in Canada proves that RocketRoute is the modern way to manage the flight planning needs of an airline.”
