Minister Edghill and GCAA meets with new Pilot’s Association
-discuss areas of mutual interest

March 22, 2021. Georgetown.
On Friday March 12, 2021, the Honourable Minister of Public Works, Bishop Juan Edghill M.P., Ministerial Advisor on Aviation, Hon. Lennox Shuman M.P., Director General Lt. Col. (Ret’d) Egbert Field A.A. and senior officials of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) met with the Executives and members of the newly formed Pilot’s Association of Guyana at the Wings Aviation Hangar at Ogle, East Coast Demerara.
The meeting discussed matters of mutual interest between the GCAA and the Pilot’s Association.
In his remarks to the pilots, Minister Edghill outlined the Government’s vision for the future of aviation in Guyana. The Hon. Minister said that there are three areas of high priority for the Government, namely (a) training of pilots, (b) safety and (c) opportunities existing within the aviation sector in Guyana which includes Tourism.

Minister Edghill also noted that the Government is facilitating expansion and development for the aviation sector and businesses by attracting investment from reputable airlines for more modern and larger aircraft to operate in Guyana, including those from Asia, European and the African markets. Fly Always and InterCaribbean Airlines were recently approved to operate flights to and from Guyana.
With the advent of the Oil and Gas industry, there is a need for more helicopter pilots to service the sector. On this note, Minister Edghill said the Government will engage stakeholders through partnerships, joint ventures and affirmative government action to have more locally trained helicopter pilots available for the aviation sector in Guyana.
Meanwhile, Ministerial Advisor on Aviation, Hon. Lennox Shuman M.P., has encouraged the pilots to scrutinize the Government’s Local Content Policy in light of the burgeoning Oil and Gas sector. He expressed hope that the Pilots will examine the document and see how it affects them and the industry.
Director General of the GCAA, Lt. Col. (Ret’d) Egbert Field A.A has committed to addressing the concerns raised by the pilots at the meeting. Col. Field said that the GCAA have included a component of Local Content Policy within its revised regulations to ensure Guyanese are employed by foreign operators conducting business in Guyana. The Director General has recommitted to working with all stakeholders to ensure that aviation in Guyana remains safe, secure and compliant.
The meeting was also attended by the Director for Aviation Safety and Security Regulations - Mr. Abraham Dorris; Chief Flight Operations Inspector, Capt. Christopher Kirkcaldy; Capt. Malcolm Chan-A-Sue; President of the Pilot’s Association of Guyana Capt. Paul Ramdat and other senior executives. A large number of pilots from the various aircraft operators and Bristow Helicopters which supports Exxon Mobil operations were also in attendance.

Press Release
Eastern Airlines, LLC officially advised GCAA of its suspension of service to Guyana - refund for passengers in process

Georgetown. February 10, 2021
On Monday February 9, 2021, Eastern Airlines, LLC officially advised the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority that it is suspending service to Guyana for the next few months due to the ongoing pandemic and new travel restrictions in place in the United States which has resulted in the airline witnessing more cancellations than confirmed bookings.
The airline noted that when the travel restrictions are removed and air travel is able to begin, they will consider restarting their service.
Eastern Airlines, LLC has an active application with the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority for commencement of operations to Toronto, Canada which they are anticipating to start this summer, all things being equal.
The airline is presently in the process of addressing refunds for all impacted passengers.
There is a bond with the Ministry of Public Works for the sum of $250,000USD to take care of passengers’ liabilities should the airline fail in honouring its obligation to passengers.
The GCAA remains committed to working with the airline during this difficult period to ensure that all impacted passengers are refunded and that there is a smooth resumption of service to Guyana in the future.
We remain engaged with the Airline and it’s customers for the benefit of all.

PANS OPS TRAINING PART ONE
Please look into this fly Jamaica issue. They are not answering phones, not communicating with travel agents and the passengers who have booked flights with them. My family and i along with several other relatives have flights booked with them and there is no official word from them whether these flights will leave on time or of at all. So far all the December flights have been cancelled. This type of service meeted out to the passengers is disgraceful and unethical. I would like the minsiter responsible for transportation and the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority to look into this. Why is Fly Jamaica being allowed to do this? Guyanese are trying to return home for the holidays, these tickets have been booked a while back and now there are no flights or the prices have gone up by 100% from what we have paid! We need some answers and the Ministry of transportation need to personally look into this.
Congrate. On your new job
