The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has awarded Leadstream Aviation the Approved Training Organisation (ATO) certificate, to carry out Boeing 737 series type-rating training locally.

The Director-General of NCAA, Captain Muhtar Usman, while presenting the certificate in Lagos, expressed satisfaction on the compliance of Leadstream during the prequalification programme. Usman, who was represented by the Acting Director of Licensing, Dr. W. T. Haggai, said Leadstream showed outstanding performance during the five phases of the ATO certification.

Haggai said: “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 out work easier. We look forward to working with you always.”In his response, Leadstream Accountable Manager and the Chief Executive Officer, Engr. Roland Ahmed, expressed gratitude to the NCAA and the certification team.

“On behalf of the management of Leadstream Aviation Training, I want to say thank you to the authority. I want to thank the NCAA team headed by Engr. Ameh. At a time, we felt overburdened.

“During the process, we were told that the process needs 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,” Ahmed said.

As specified in the certificate, Leadstream Aviation Training is approved to carry out trainings 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).
