The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has partially lifted the suspension on International Aviation College, Ilorin, Approved Training Organisation (ATO) certificate.
This was conveyed in a letter dated 8th October, 2018 signed by the Ag. Director of Licensing, Cletus Umeh on behalf of the Director General, Capt Muhtar Usman.
The partial lifting of the suspension was as a result “ of the closure of a good number of the findings and the remarkable commitment demonstrated in closing the remaining findings as verified during the recent re-certification audit of the College.
Consequently, the partial lifting, ”is ONLY applicable to the Fixed Wing Pilot (Aeroplane) and Flight Dispatchers Courses.”
It follows therefore that the helicopter flight training segment of the approved courses is still on suspension until the necessary corrective actions are undertaken.
The College is therefore directed to take necessary the steps to close all open items after which the Authority would carry out another round of re-certification exercise for total lifting or otherwise.
Earlier, NCAA had suspended the ATO of the International Aviation College, Ilorin due to the deficiencies found during an audit of the institution.
The Authority hereby reaffirmed its commitment to enforcement of compliance to safety regulations at all times so as to continue to guarantee safer skies in Nigeria.
