My wife is Guyanese. She doesn't plan on going back but there are other family who woild definitely benefit from this. Both NY and ATL has a pretty sizable Guyanese population.
Will the a/c overnight there and, if so, will the crews be protected from "choke an rob" ?

Considering the Guyanese (and Guianese) in the UK, Toronto (and the rest of Canada) as well as New York and elsewhere, more live outside the country than live there.

Apart from Kaieteur, or to take in necessities for family or friends, which would otherwise be stolen if mailed, is there any reason to go there ?
The schedule published in the linked article has the aircraft on the ground in Georgetown for 1h22m, from 5:58am to 7:20 am, so no overnight for the plane.
Everyone's jumping in on that new found oil money
Not too many people hear about that, but there is a lot of natural resources there. Venrzuela has been trying to take Guyana for a while now.
Apologies for this post which is not directly aviation related.

Some of the semi-artificial pools which the Grumman amphibs used to operate out of were amazingly small and almost surrounded with trees. Refuelling by hand pumps on re-used 55 gallon drums was amazing considering the possibilities of fuel contamination (rust flakes and water).

Venezuela only wanted some of the north western area (part of Essequibo, where the oil happens to be) and this is one of the reasons Jones was allowed to build his operation there. The Dutch (now Surinam) wanted an eastern chunk of Berbice/the Courantene, but I can't imagine why since there's nothing of value there that I can think of, not even bauxite.

What I don't understand is why it took this long to try to exploit the known oil deposits.
