Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress


As a move towards boosting the technical competence of the operations officers who provide guidance to the aircraft during maneuvering on the ground otherwise know as marshallers in accordance with aviation standard practices as recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has embarked on retraining of the aircraft marshallers.

The training, which was cordinated by an ICAO certified instructor, Mr Fortune Idu, who was recently appointed as the representative of Munich Airport International Germany in Nigeria, included airfield safety awareness, apron safety risk assessment, standard guidance signals and practical marshalling as recommended in Annex 2.

Reports say the development complimented many of the recent international feats recorded by Nnamdi Azikwe International airport with the performance by the airport manager Mr Sani Muhammed widely adjudged impressive who attributed the achievements recorded at the Abuja airport to the support being enjoyed under the leadership of the present FAAN management led by Captain Rabiu Yadudu.
