Nigerian CAA correct mistake on AOC Clamp Down

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has tendered an apology to the management of Lagos based private airline operator, Jet Support Service, in what appeared to be an administrative error.

The NCAA had on Friday, July 3rd 2020, issued a suspension notice of part G (Aircraft leasing operations) of challenger 604 jet, owned by Jet Support Service.

However, within 24 hours of issuing the suspension notice, the NCAA in another letter, signed by Captain Musa S. Nuhu, apologised “for the erroneous grounding of Challenger 604 aircraft with registration G-FABO”.

The letter further reads that “the suspension is hereby lifted with immediate effect and all appropriate authorities notified to lift any restriction that might have been placed on the aircraft”.

In the earlier statement signed by the Director General/ CEO of the NCAA, Captain Musa S. Nuhu, the regulatory authority had suspended Jet Support Service who is the operator of challenger 604 aircraft, within the Nigerian airspace, pending compliance with its requirements
