Karolyn Darrell-Burgess has been promoted to safety oversight adviser at the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority.

It is a role she has been working towards for two years through a succession plan prepared by the authority to help grow the careers of younger Bermudians in the aviation sector.

Ms Darrell-Burgess’s role includes providing accurate and effective advice on safety and quality management performance and the efficacy of policies.

The BCAA is responsible for the regulation and safety oversight of aviation in Bermuda, and for managing the Bermuda Aircraft Registry.

Len Cormier, the incumbent safety oversight adviser who has mentored Ms Darrell-Burgess, said: “It was no easy task for Karolyn to prepare for this role in only two years, but she is very capable, motivated and hard-working, which provides us with the confidence that she will excel within the role and continue to learn on the job.

“Karolyn has evolved into an effective team leader and will eventually have a team member of her own to manage.”

Ms Darrell-Burgess completed a number of training courses and seminars to date, complemented by continuous mentoring from Mr Cormier and Elaine Parker, safety management expert. Her training and mentoring will continue for another two years to strengthen her capabilities to allow her to assume all safety oversight adviser duties.

In addition to training for her management position, Ms Darrell-Burgess added additional responsibility by volunteering as the lead co-ordinator for an upcoming audit by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

Thomas Dunstan, director general of BCAA, said: “We are very pleased with Karolyn’s progress and the results our succession plans are producing. Karolyn is one of five Bermudians currently enrolled in plans across different areas of the authority.”
