NCAA revokes Execujet pilot’s licence
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) yesterday revoked the licence of an Execujet Airline pilot over alleged violation of aviation regulations.
Although it withheld the name and airline of the pilot, the regulator disclosed that the sanction was the consequence of the pilot operating non-schedule flights with expired medical certificate.
NCAA’s General Manager, Public Relations, Sam Adurogboye, said during the flight operations, “the pilot repeatedly exercised the privileges of his Airline Transport’s Pilot Licence (ATPL) A, when he was not qualified to exercise such privileges.”
Specifically, the validity of the pilot’s medical certificate commenced from July 17, 2017 and expired on January 16, 2018, but another one was processed on May 11, 2018, which expired on November 10, 2018.
“However, investigation revealed that instead of the pilot to revalidate his medical certificate he conducted flight operations as Pilot-in-Command (PIC) in flagrant disregard of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs),” he said.
