Trans Guyana Airways given green light for shuttle operations
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) today, September 6, 2017, officially lifted the suspension on shuttling operations for Trans Guyana Airways. This decision comes after Trans Guyana Airways had successfully completed the five-phase process used by the GCAA which entails 1) Pre-application phase, 2) Application phase, 3) Document evaluation, 4) Demonstration and Inspection and 5) Certification.
On September 2, 2017, a Flight Operations Inspector from the GCAA worked all day aboard Trans Guyana Airways flight conducting demonstration inspections to ensure documented procedures were observed by the operator. Inspections were conducted on flight operations into Olive Creek, Blake Slater and Kamarang aerodromes.
The Authority continues to work with the other domestic operators to have their shuttle operations approved so that they can resume shuttling operations.
In addition to approving manuals for shuttling operations, the Authority is also considering other measures to enhance safety for flight operations within the hinterland region.
The GCAA reiterates that the actions taken were necessary to enhance safety of the travelling public and aviation personnel. The Authority will continue its increased surveillance of Air Operators.
