Runway 10 Development Company engage Aviation Entrepreneurs


by Makeda Mikael


Runway 10 Development Company is on a mission to develop V.C.Bird International Airport’s General Aviation by creating a business platform for Antigua’s aviation entrepreneurs.

The mission set to coincide with the celebration of our 41st anniversary of Independence, is the gifting of 33 years of aviation experience of the owners of Runway 10 lands, in a proposed development with Antigua’s Aviation entrepreneurs.

Inspired by a new direction for generational wealth proposed by a local investment platform soon to be launched in December, Antigua Hangars Inc. owner of 26 plus acres of lands around the 5000 ft runway owned by the Government, is among the first locally owned companies to be involved and act upon it.

Engagement has begun with several operators of General Aviation Services expressing need for operating space to further develop and uplift aviation in Antigua.

Runway 10 Development Company welcomes the interest expressed by all those who are investing, and those enquiring about opportunities.

We are mindful of the great history made in Aviation by a pioneer hailing from the island of St. Kitts, Sir Frank Delisle, who started LIAT from two islands which only had landing strips, Montserrat and Barbuda.

Runway 10, now Dis-used, must honour this man who created LIAT, and also re-activated the U.S. abandoned runway by establishing his charter airline Carib Aviation on Runway 10.

To this end, the program to encourage the development of Runway 10 by Antiguan aviation entrepreneurs, shall include a project to have the Government recognize him by renaming Runway 10, the Frank Delisle Private Airport.

  1. Mami_Wata & Papa_Elegba say, it’s not how you start the race, it’s how you finish.



  2. You expect she to give away the land to you and you Chinese, better Antigua people work the land themselves.

  3. No, I certainly do not expect that. She has four Sons who will do an excellent job in running the business. They had been there before, and she ran them out. Black people are their own worst enemy. No one will do business with this lady. For whom she is. If your mother owned such a property with that much capability and opportunities, wouldn’t you want to work with her and build out the business? Why then did the boys leave and go to work for others and themselves? the woman is sitting on millions and millions of assets that was once Stanford and has been given to her. She didn’t have to pay one red cent for it. All that is needed is a levelheaded businesswoman to run this operation and be the only black woman in the entire Caribbean with such an opportunity. Actually, perhaps in the World. But again, I will be accused of having something against her. Which is fine because I do. But that goes way back to Lester’s days. And it’s a pity if she ever loses that property. Cause the children deserve this inheritance. Stephen, when working for Stanford, built this property. Who knew that fate would have it that his mother would have come to own it many years later.

    • Old man here you go again minding the woman’s business, oh boy you really must have a growth somewhere in you system caused by this woman. Tell us, share with us what she did to you that has you crippled with hatred. They say unrequited love turns to hate, sorry for you because that sort of pain gives big seed! You have?

    • Sidelines:You are on her case again. Because she turned you down from your advances. You now hate her guts.Or is it because she got the lands up there and you got zero.

      • Forget about me. Why are her children running away from her? That is what I have put out there. But you guys do not wish to look at that and question that. Something must be really wrong with you.
