 In a statement, the Managing Director of NAMA Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam, congratulated the engineers for “displaying extreme commitment to the goal of improved air safety in Nigeria by taking their studies seriously’’.

 

Engr. Abdulsalam noted “with major milestones so far recorded by the agency in digitalizing Air Traffic Management as evident in the deployment of ADS-C/ CPDLC and Safe Towers in the nation’s airspace, management has no option than to adequately enhance technical and operational capacity to man these new technologies in line with world best practices.’’
