Trans Guyana Airways (TGY, Georgetown Ogle) has been given the provisional go-ahead by the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to resume domestic Guyanese shuttle flights following a nationwide moratorium imposed on August 30.

The ban was effected following the crash of an Air Services (Guyana) Cessna (single piston) U206F Stationair, 8R-GFM (msn U20601731), near the Kaieteur Falls gorge last week which killed the pilot. It was the third such incident to have occurred over the last two months.

The GCAA subsequently grounded all local operators requiring them and their procedures to undergo scrutinization before being allowed back into commercial service.

"The GCAA will be examining air operators’ procedures as it relates to qualified loaders, certified dispatchers and operational control at their base and various locations as indicated in the operating manuals," it said. "GCAA will also be conducting onsite investigations to verify these procedures are in place on site."

In a statement on Saturday, September 2, the GCAA said it had conducted an inspection of Trans Guyana Airways' operations into Olive Creek, Blake Slater and Kamarang aerodromes.

"Based on the demonstration inspection, Trans Guyana Airways is required to amend their manual after which certification of their shuttle operations should be completed on or before Wednesday September 6, 2017," the regulator said.

The GCAA is working with the other operators to bring their operations into compliance for them to be certified for shuttle operations.
