The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has revoked the licence of unidentified pilot for serious violation of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs).
This revocation was a consequence of the Pilot operatng fights on non-schedule operations while his medical certificate has since expired.
During these fight operations, the Pilot repeatedly exercised the privileges of his License ATPL (A) when he was not qualified to exercise such privileges.
The Pilot’s Medical Certificate commenced validity from 17th July,2017 and expired on the 16th January, 2018.
Another one was processed on 11th May, 2018 which expired on the 10th November, 2018.
However, preliminary investigation revealed that instead of the Pilot revalidating his Medical Certificate he conducted fight operations as the Pilot-in-Command(PIC) in flagrant disregard of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs).
According to Part 126.96.36.199-(b) A flight crew member or air traffic controller shall not exercise the privileges of his/her licence unless he/she holds a current medical certificate appropriate to the licence.
Consequent upon this, the Authority has determined that pursuant to Part188.8.131.52(b) of the Nig.CARs, the Pilot has lost the privileges of his Licence.
He does not hold a current medical certificate appropriate to the Licence.
Resultantly, in Part 184.108.40.206 (a) A licence, rating, authorisation or certificate shall be revoked if the holder has lost the skills for exercising the privileges mentioned in the document or fails to meet appropriate medical standards as shown by the result of a medical examination or a test.
Therefore, in line with Part 220.127.116.11(a)(1) of the Nig.CARs, the Pilot’s Licence ATPL 2807 (A) is hereby revoked with immediate effect, and it ceases to be effective.
