It was nearly ten years ago that West Wind Aviation’s senior management recognized the need for additional scheduled air service into the north, and Pronto Airways was formed. And Northern employees like Rose Toutsaint have contributed on many levels to the company’s initial and continued success.

Rose Toutsaint started with Pronto in March of 2006 adding her aviation experience from her years at Athabasca Airways to the team. Rose was born in Uranium City, and settled and raised her family in Stony Rapids with her husband, who is a supervisor for the department of highways in the community. Rose now splits her time between her duties as a Customer Service Agent at Pronto and spoiling her 6 grandchildren. Why does she do it? Rose says she “loves working with the people, and serving her community.” Pronto Airways became West Wind Scheduled Services in July 2015. The company provides direct ownership benefits to the First Nations communities in the Athabasca region of northern Saskatchewan
