    The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has conducted validation flights on instrument flight procedures in international airports across the country.

    This is contained in a statement issued by Mr. Tayib Odunowo, Managing Director of NAMA, on Sunday in Lagos.

    Odunowo said that the exercise was conducted ahead of the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP), expected to begin at the end of the month.

    He said that the agency also calibrated navigational aids at airports in the country, while newly installed ones have been commissioned at the Maiduguri and Minna airports.

    Required documents, such as Aeronautical Information Publications (AIP), Operation Manuals, and Memoranda of Understanding with other agencies, have been reviewed and forwarded to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for approval.

    He expressed satisfaction with the preparedness and compliance level of the agency.

    The managing director also noted that critical manpower has been boosted at major airports across the country.

    He reiterated the importance of units and departments working in synergy and harmony.

    The managing director also inspected the Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria (TRACON) sites, control towers, mobile control towers, the Air Traffic Control III-D Tower Simulator at Centrex Lagos, and administrative offices.
