The minister says the latest acquisition will make training more efficient, faster and cheaper.

The Nigerian government has acquired three new aircraft for its aviation training school, an official has said.

The training school is Nigeria College of Aviation Technology(NCAT), Zaria, Kaduna State.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, disclosed this on his Twitter handle (@handisirika) on Sunday.

Mr Sirika said there was no better aviation safety than having well trained, proficient aviators.

According to him, training will now be more efficient, faster and cheaper.

"Our roadmap is yielding good result. We appreciate your support, " he added

NCAT was designed to be a training centre for Nigerian and African pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers and navigation aid technicians.

It subsequently created a flying school, air traffic services and communications school and aeronautical electronics and telecommunications school to meet its objectives.

In the late 1970s, it began giving specialised training courses in instrument landing systems, jet simulation, airline transport and VHF omnidirectional range.
