The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has revoked the AirlineTransport Pilot’s Licence ATPL of a Pilot for serious violation of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs).

This revocation was a consequence of the Pilot operating flights on non-schedule operations while his medical certificate has expired.

In a statement, the General Manager, Public Affairs, Sam Adurogboye says, during these flight operations, the Pilot repeatedly exercised the privilegesof his License ATPL (A) when he was not qualified to exercise such privileges.

According to him, the Pilot’s Medical Certificate commenced validity from 17th July, 2017 and expired on the 16th January, 2018, while another one was processed on 11thMay, 2018 which expired on the 10th November, 2018.

However, investigation revealed that instead of the Pilot revalidating his Medical Certificate he conducted flight operations as the Pilot-in-Command (PIC) in flagrant disregard of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs).

The Pilot has been directed to return the invalidated licence to the Authority’s Director of Licensing (DOL) within seven days of receipt of the Letter of Sanction.

The NCAA reiterates that it will continue to view very seriously any infraction of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs).
