FAAN, NCAT To Share Revenue, Liabilities On 5.2bn Aircraft Fire Simulator

June 12, (THEWILL) – The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) have agreed to share revenue and liabilities on the Boeing 737-NG full-flight fire simulator acquired in 2019 by the Federal Government and installed at the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria.

The agreement was part of resolutions reached when the Managing Director/Chief Executive of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mrs Olubunmi Kuku, intervened to resolve the dispute on the fire simulator on Tuesday.

Rising from a meeting held in the MD/CE’s Boardroom in Lagos, and attended by FAAN top management team and a team from NCAT led by the Rector/CEO, Mr. Joseph Imalighwe, as well as the leadership of the Nigerian Aviation Fire and Safety Association (NAFSA), it was also resolved that FAAN will use its network to attract foreign trainees to use the facility and raise revenue for both organisations.

The Multi-purpose Aircraft Fire Simulator situated at NCAT Campus in Zaria offers different practical firefighting and rescue scenarios. It was acquired in 2019 by the previous administration for about N5.2 billion.

The simulator would save the country billions of foreign currency in training costs, which hitherto went to other countries.

Speaking on the development, the FAAN MD/CE said, “We are happy to have finally come to this agreement between sister organisations in the interest of the safety of our passengers and improving the competence of our brave firefighters. This will improve our image globally and attract the revenue that both organisations need. As I have always said, safety will always take priority in everything we do at FAAN, and this is a demonstration of that.”
