Williette Gardner was also captain of first all-female crew for GAC

Dear Editor,


I refer to the article in your publication yesterday which outlined the aviation achievements of Captain Williette Gardner. In addition to what was stated, it should be also noted and recorded that Captain Gardner became the first Captain of an All-Female Flight Crew in Guyana Airways, when she commanded the Corporation’s de Havilland Twin Otter aircraft on a scheduled commercial flight with Claudia Brown as her co-pilot.

Claudia, another Guyanese female pilot who originated from Kamarang, was a flight crewmember with Guyana Airways. She also flew with Skyking Ltd., and later was employed by Air Jamaica Express as First Officer on the de Havilland Dash-8 aircraft.

Yours faithfully,
Lloyd H Marshall
