Two Generation, Two Captains
Airport Road, March 16, 2016 – WINAIR is proud to announce the upgrade of two of our local first officers to the rank of Captain. St. Eustatius’ own Ivanio Courtar and St. Maarten’s own Edison Hodge, who both have shown dedication and diligent work, were rewarded with the promotion to Captain and accepted their fourth stripe.
A special congratulation goes out to our Director of Operations Captain Edwin Hodge as Edison is not only part of the WINAIR family but very much a part of his.
It is with pride we employ both father and son with the rank of Captain and are confident Edison, Ivanio and Edwin will continue in their quest for excellence.
“The quality and commitment of young men like Edison and Ivanio makes us proud and is truly a positive statement of these young men’s character.” Stated M.D. Cleaver, President and CEO of Windward Island Airways International (WINAIR) N.V.
