Guyana: Increase in aviation accidents recorded over last year

There was an increase in the number of aviation accidents over the last year and the reports on some of these cases are still to be completed as the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) awaits the result of the analyses of plane engines sent overseas.

Observers have voiced concern that the reports for these are not completed swiftly enough. Some have said too that in addition to there being more air activity in the country’s hinterland and at the newly designated Ogle International Airport, there are not enough trained personnel in air safety regulations.
