NAMA to install prefabricated pilot joint briefing offices nationwide

NIGERIAN Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has completed the installation of prefabricated pilot joint briefing office at Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos and is expected to continue the installation in 21 airports and 3 aerodromes nationwide.

When operational, the prefabricated offices will provide a one-stop shop at the airside where crew members can obtain AIS briefing, meteorological information and make necessary payments at a single point in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs).

The facility will also accommodate the equipment room for the VSAT network which is simultaneously being installed by the contractor.

Speaking on this development, the Managing Director of NAMA, Capt. Fola Akinkuotu said this is part of continuous efforts by the agency to enhance seamless and sustainable communication in the upper airspace, adding that the Satellite Lineup for the VSAT node at NAMA headquarters in Lagos will be completed within the week, while that of Abuja, Port Harcourt and other stations would follow in the next couple of days.

The NAMA boss revealed that the installation of 14 new Very High Frequency (VHF) radio sites which will ride on the new VSAT network is to commence simultaneously with these installations, even as he expressed gratitude to the Federal Government for its support and intervention leading to the final clearance of the agency’s VSAT equipment at the Apapa port. Capt. Akinkuotu however assured airspace users and the flying public that the Nigerian airspace remained safe, adding that NAMA would continue to upgrade its air traffic management services and procedures to guarantee safety of air navigation in the country at all times.
