The engineering aspect of Nigeria’s aviation sector is set for massive transformation as the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority and the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure are set to collaborate on local manufacturing of helicopters.
While, NCAA is expected to provide relevant guides for NASENI, an agency designed to conduct developmental work in the areas of manufacturing.
The Executive Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NASENI, Prof. Muhammed Haruna, during a courtesy visit to the NCAA last week, said the agency had placed an order for a Dynali H3 easy flyer sport ultralight helicopter for the purpose of reverse engineering.
He explained that in line with the agency’s mandate in aviation and aeronautics technology, NASENI had reached out to potential partners and manufacturers of helicopters, and Dynali Helicopter Manufacturing Company of Belgium was found to be a willing partner.
Expect to see Nigerian made helicopters in the near future.
