Washington, DC – Xenophon Strategies has been working with longtime client ATR following the crash of a West Wind Aviation regional ATR-42. The aircraft went down shortly after takeoff from Fond-du-Lac in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. The aviation accident involved 22 passengers and 3 crew members; multiple people were injured be no one died.
“Xenophon does more aviation crisis work that any firm anywhere including 31 accidents over the past 20 years,” said Xenophon CEO David Fuscus. “And while this is a serious accident, we are thankful that no one died because we’ve worked on too many crashes where that wasn’t the case.”
The ATR-42 turboprop was manufactured in France and Italy and was designed for short haul flights. ATR is the world’s largest manufacturer of turboprop aircraft.
