The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority NCAA has certified Leadstream Aviation Training Organization to carryout certain trainings on some aircraft type.

This is just as the training organization has promised to justify the confidence reposed in them to adhere to standards during the presentation of certificate by NCAA to Leadstream in its Lagos office

Trainings approved for Leadstream includes, type rating system course (initial and refresher) on B737 series, CRJ series, Challenger aircraft and Embraer, while others include, hawker 125 series, ATR, Donier and DHCB.

Reacting to the acquisition of the certificate in a statement, the Executive Director Roland Ahmed Maikudi expressed joy and commended the Management of NCAA for doing a diligent job and promised to uphold high standards in line with standards and operational practices.

“I feel great and very grateful to God for the strength to pursue this dream, thus far. We are not there yet, still work in progress, even though we are happy we are not celebrating, because the journey ahead of us is far”.

According to him this showed that the institution has the capability to conduct training for engineers and technicians on almost all the types of aircraft flown in the country.

He noted that the journey so far has been challenging and interesting, but expressed joy that efforts made was not in vain.

“The next line of action, is to continue to do more, continue to improve on what we have, continue to seek for more approval until we get to the point that, no engineer on technician have a reason to travel out for training”.

Ahmed explained that the organisation will expand into pilot training (flight training), where they will be expected to take delivery of their B737CL full flight simulator.
