    Again somebody's somebody seems to be given appointments .What does he know about aviation? Government must appoint people who have skills and experience in aviation. Not those have money,businesses etc. Again relations friends and classmates should not be appointed in the guise of good governance.

    I'm glad someone of quality is finally being given the job, I trust that Mr De Alwis will bring the same hard work ethic and astute out of the box thinking he put into his other projects. No he isn't a pilot, but neither is he an architect and I have faith that he will make it work better than any his predecessors.
