Senior LIAT pilots fined by regional civil aviation authority

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, Dec. 11, CMC – Two senior pilots with the regional carrier LIAT, have been fined by the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA), for flying an aircraft in contravention of aviation regulations earlier this year.

The Antigua Observer reports that the pilots – Chief Training Captain Christopher Cameron was fined EC$5000, while his co-accused, Chief Pilot Wayne Austin McDonald was fined EC$3000.

LIATTTAccording to the Observer, while the Leeward Islands Airline Pilots’ Association (LIALPA) did not comment on the development, it’s understood that the pilots who were being investigated for breaches to their license agreement, paid the fines since mid-November.

The agreement places a barrier on the age of a pilot and a co-pilot in a single cockpit – both pilots who are over the age of 60, were allegedly scheduled to fly the same plane.

The Observer noted that LIAT is also being investigated for its role in the incident and the airline is “likely” to be fined.
