Forty students have graduated from the Art Williams and Harry Wendt Aeronautical Engineering School (AWHWAES).
The school boasts a higher than average pass rate, with students qualifying with merit, credit and multiple distinctions. According to the Director of the school, Captain Malcolm Chan-A-Sue, this success rate is quite notable.
Most of the graduates have already begun applying for their Guyana Civil Aviation Authority, Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s licence.
A Department of Public Information (DPI) press release noted that Minister within the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Annette Ferguson, during her feature address on Monday, stated that since 2015, Guyana’s compliance in the area of civil aviation has improved greatly. She also noted that the government continues to show its support for the development of this sector, by ensuring that updated legislation was in place.
“The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority would have given their signal to us that they are ready for another validation which should be done before December 2018. The Director-General has assured me that after this validation is done, we should see Guyana moving from a mere 64.4 per cent to nearly 80 per cent,” Ferguson was quoted as saying.
