From father to son

Retiring LIAT pilot Keith Robertson yesterday encouraged his colleagues at the regional airline to secure new contracts, minutes after he brought his final flight into the Grantley Adams International Airport to much fanfare.
“We need a new working contract. It is a must,” Robertson told the LIAT pilots who had earlier formed part of a guard of honour on the tarmac to welcome his last flight. He reminded  them the last contract had been signed in 1994.“My vision for LIAT is to hear that employees are recognised for their contributions, no matter how small.”
Pilots, flight attendants, ground handlers, wife Kay and sons Krispin and Keith, along with other members of the Robertson family and other airport staff, cheered excitedly as Captain Robertson guided the aircraft through a welcome spout of water from two fire tenders drawn up in formation on the tarmac.Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy hailed Robertson as “an exceptional aviator” and lauded him for “a tremendous contribution” on behalf of a “grateful nation and a grateful region.”
