The Minister of Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, has received the first batch of three training aircraft for the Nigeria College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria.
According to him, training will now be more efficient, faster and cheaper.
“Our roadmap is yielding good result. We appreciate your support, ” he added.
NAN recalls that NCAT was designed to be a training centre for Nigerian and African pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers and navigation aid technicians.
In the late 1970s, it began giving specialised training courses in instrument landing systems, jet simulation, airline transport and VHF omnidirectional range. (NAN)
