For immediate release

July 18/18

CanWest Air is pleased that Northern Air Charters and the Town of Peace River have worked with us in
finalizing an agreement that facilitates CanWest purchasing a hangar at the Peace River Airport.

The previous RCMP hangar on lot 4, will undergo some minor updates over the next few days. The 24/7 aircraft
currently based in Peace River and the daytime scheduled aircraft currently based in Grande Prairie at night, will
both be moved permanently to the Peace River hanger by the end of July.

We appreciate Northern Air Charters and the Town of Peace River for their work in making this happen.
CanWest will continue to work with Advanced Paramedic Limited on providing excellent air ambulance services
to the citizens of Peace River and Northern Alberta.
