In improving capacity building in the aviation sector of the national economy, the Federal Government has taken delivery of the first of three training aircraft for the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), in Zaria, Kaduna State.

Sen. Hadi Sirika, Honourable for Aviation, who took the delivery of the training airplanes, disclosed this via his verified Twitter account Sunday, November 22, 2020.

The Minister, while emphasising the strategic importance of capacity building in the sector, said there was no better aviation safety than having well-trained, proficient aviators.

Training will now be more efficient, faster and cheaper, he said.

Sirika stated: “Our roadmap is yielding good result. We appreciate your support.”

ConsumerConnect reports the NCAT Zaria was designed to be a training centre for Nigerian and African pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers and navigation aid technicians.

The aviation institute later created a flying school, air traffic services and communications school and aeronautical electronics and telecommunications school to meet its objectives.
