On Jul 25, 2017 Roraima Airways’ Chief Pilot Collin Winston Martin met a tragic demise around 17:30 hrs when the Britten-Norman Islander aircraft he was attempting to land at the Eteringbang airstrip, nose-dived into thick vegetation, a short distance from the runway.

The 40-year-old Martin, a former Guyana Defence Force (GDF) officer, assumed the role of chief pilot at Roraima Airways in 2015 following the death of Captain Alvin Clarke.

he leaves to mourn a wife, Roberta Martin, who is a doctor, and the couple shared an eight-year-old daughter, Rebecca.

Gouveia, on the other hand, said that the only report he received was that the aircraft was closing off its operation for the day when the accident occurred. He said that the pilot would have spent the night in Eteringbang and continued working today before heading to Ogle in the afternoon.

Captaoin Gerry Gouveia, CEO of Roraima Airways, noted “He was a very experienced pilot and the star medical evacuation pilot, He saved many lives at night across Guyana.”
