GCAA launches new redesigned website
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) officially launched its new redesigned website www.gcaa-gy.org at a simple ceremony held in the board room at the Authority’s head office, on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Present at the launch was the Honourable Minister Annette Ferguson, the Board of Directors of the GCAA, the Director General, other Directors and Staff of the Authority.
Honourable Minister Annette Ferguson told those gathered that the new website is an indication that the Authority is moving in the right direction, and is subscribing to the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
“The launch of this website, therefore, is a step in the right direction because it will help us to share with the rest of the world what we have and assist us in our endeavor to join the ranks of the modern aviation world” the Minister said. The Minister noted that the redesign of the website was faced with many challenges, and congratulated the staff of the Authority for taking time from their busy schedule to provide the required information for the site.
Also giving brief remarks was the Director General, Lt. Col. (Ret’d) Egbert Field, who noted that the website will be used as a medium for public consultation, especially with the introduction of new civil aviation regulations. “The regulations will be placed on the site for all to peruse, and provide feedback after sixty days on the website, so this is another way for us to reach out to our stakeholders, and get feedback from them” Col. Field said.
Wayne Farley Designs was awarded the contract to develop the GCAA’s new website with advanced features such as content management, serving secure pages, forum, and document repository.

Farley elaborated on the importance of controlling their message to aviation stakeholders and managing the organization’s online reputation.

He encouraged the authority to establish a frequency with which to publish new content and stick to the schedule.
