In August 2011 the Government of Nunavut announced that the medivac contract for the Kitikmeot Region had been given to Air Tindi, along with its partner Arsaniq, owned by Dennis Lyall. Adlair has appealed to the Nunavummi Nangminiqaqtunik Ikajuuti and a decision is expected by 11 October 2011. The decision to dismiss the appeal was made 29 October 2011 and the new released 31 October. Adlair were given an extension on their contract until the end of November 2011.
15 April 2009, an Adlair flight was returning from Yellowknife to Cambridge Bay. The plane in the incident was a Beechcraft King Air. While about 180 km (110 mi) from the airport, and at 23,000 ft (7,000 m), one of the two passengers, a 20 year old male, became upset, opened the cabin door and jumped to his death. The aircraft landed in Cambridge Bay with the damaged door partially open and no injuries to the flight crew or the other passenger. An inquest has been called by Nunavut's chief coroner which will begin on December 7.
