In Loving Memory of Rosemond W. James & Gregory A. McAlpin. Gone but not forgotten.
 rosemond  greg

Two years ago, one of the most devastating natural disasters occurred in Haiti.

This earthquake has had and continues to have far-reaching consequences not only for the people of Haiti but to the wider Caribbean and beyond.

Our Organisation had not escaped the tentacles of this disaster. Two of our most distinguished colleagues, Mr. Rosemond James and Mr. Gregory McAlpin (Director General and Director of Flight Safety respectively) lost their lives on that tragic afternoon of 12th January 2010.

Our struggles and attempts to find our comrades following the earthquake are now history. While we remember that fateful day with heavy hearts and sadness, let us all spare a moment today to reflect on their lives, their contributions to this august Civil Aviation Authority which is our own and to the examples of their work ethics, their workmanship and the dedication to safety and security in Civil Aviation that they displayed.

It is only natural that those of us who came to know them intimately and / or professionally will continue to mourn and miss them - it is yet too soon for the pain we feel to disappear, if it will ever do so.

Today, let us pay respect to our fallen comrades and resolve to use the examples and all that they have left us to continue to focus on jealously safeguarding and protecting the safety and security of Civil Aviation in our jurisdiction and beyond. Let us spare no effort  in ensuring that its development and growth are always in a safe, orderly and expeditious manner in accordance with the standards and recommended practices of the ICAO with due respect for the rule of law and the environment.

May God continue to bless us.


Donald McPhail

Director General (Ag)
