The certificate will enable the organisation to carry out Boeing 737 series type-rating training.
The NCAA specified in the certificate that Leadstream Aviation Training had been approved to carry out training in “Type-rating system course, initial and refresher on B737 300/400/500 (airframe, associated power plant and avionics), and B737 600/700-900 (airframe, associated power plant and avionics).
The Director-General, NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman, said he was satisfied with Leadstream’s compliance during the process of certification.
Usman, who was represented by the Acting Director of Licensing, Dr W.T. Haggai, said, “We are very glad in your interest in providing training for aviation personnel in Nigeria. We want to commend you for your outstanding performance during the ATO process and having completed the five phases of the ATO certification process. As the initial applicant, we must make bold to say that your facilities are outstanding.”
“Your manuals have also been seen as outstanding and we believe that that is the way to go for the aviation industry. The DG NCAA is fully aware that everything has come out successfully. We want to wish you the best and we plead that you stick to the regulations. It will help you and it will make our work easier. We look forward to working with you always.”
The Leadstream Accountable Manager and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Roland Ahmed, stated that at a point during the process of certification, the company felt overburdened.
“But we were told that the process needed to be balanced. We were told that we are doing this so we can do it right. At the end of the day, from my heart, I appreciate it. Where we need to go back and forth, we were guided all through,” he added.
