The AIB Commissioner also revealed that the bureau is in the process of signing an agreement with France so the AIB can handle investigations of French-Speaking West African countries’ incident ,” they appreciate what we are doing here, he said, “meaning we are doing something right.”

During his welcome address, managing director of Spring Fountain, Mr. Tunde Fagbemi explained the reason the industry was most regulated stating that accidents were a series of activities that happen but we’re preventable.

He said, ” Aviation is the most regulated industry in the world, why do we need to regulate and it’s unfortunate but Ethiopian knows the need for regulation, Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier know why aviation needs to be regulated.

“an accident is not what needs to happen, but it is something that we need to prevent. An accident is a culmination of many little events and the most fundamental objective of AIB is safety and issuing safety recommendations for the betterment of the industry.”
