Federal Government Acquires Brand New Calibration Aircraft To Aid Navigational Equipment’s Around The AIRPORTS

by Anita Ogona

The Federal Government says it has taken delivery of a calibration aircraft worth $8.5m that will serve in the calibration of navigational aids across Nigerian airports.

the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, who tweeted the development via his official Twitter handle on Thursday night, said, “Just received new calibration aircraft for the country. (The) make is King Air 350i. Cost is $8.5m. the aircraft would help make Nigeria’s airspace safer.

“The agony of contracting it to South Africa at about $500,000 every six months is over. Our airspace is safer. Thanks Mr. President, we started and finished during your regime.”

Providing further explanation on the usefulness of the aircraft, the minister said, “The purpose of this aircraft is to calibrate our equipment and aids in the country for the purpose of flight operations. We used to have one in Nigeria but for the last two decades, we never had one.”

He said what informed the government to procure the aircraft was that when it was reconstructing the Abuja airport runway, there was the need to re calibrate all the landing aids at the time, which was actually the requirement.

“This is to ensure they are working in perfect order,” He noted that at that time Nigeria did not have the capability as a country.
