The regulatory agency stated on Sunday that the development had been conveyed to the college in a letter dated October 8, 2018, and signed by the Acting Director of Licensing, Cletus Umeh, on behalf of the Director General, Capt Muhtar Usman.
In a statement signed by its General Manager, Public Relations, Sam Adurogboye, the NCAA said the partial lifting of the suspension was as a result of the closure of a good number of the findings and the remarkable commitment demonstrated in closing the remaining findings as verified during the recent re-certification audit of the college.
The statement read in part, “Consequently, the partial lifting is only applicable to the fixed wing pilot (aeroplane) and flight dispatchers’ courses. It follows therefore that the helicopter flight training segment of the approved courses is still on suspension until the necessary corrective actions are undertaken.
“The college is therefore directed to take necessary steps to close all open items after which the authority would carry out another round of re-certification exercise for total lifting or otherwise.”
According to the NCAA, it had earlier suspended the ATO of the IAC, Ilorin due to the deficiencies found during an audit of the institution.
“The authority hereby reaffirmed its commitment to enforcement of compliance to safety regulations at all times so as to continue to guarantee safer skies in Nigeria,” the NCAA added.
