Aviation Minister Hadi Sirika has received the first batch of three training aircraft for the Nigeria College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) in Zaria, Kaduna State.

Sirika, who announced on Sunday, on his Twitter handle (@hadisirika), explained that there was no better aviation safety than having well trained, proficient aviators.

According to him, training will now be more efficient, faster and cheaper.

“Our road map is yielding good result. We appreciate your support,” Sirika added.

NAN recalls that NCAT was designed to be a training centre for Nigerian and African pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers and navigation aid technicians.

It subsequently created a flying school, air traffic services and communications school and aeronautical electronics and telecommunications school to meet its objectives.

In the late 1970s, it began giving specialised training courses in instrument landing systems, jet simulation, airline transport and VHF omnidirectional range.
