The Federal Executive Council has approved plans to establish the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) Training School in the country.

The AIB Commissioner, Mr Akin Olateru, confirmed the development at the monthly Gateway Forum organised by the League of Airports and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC), in Lagos on Saturday.

Olateru noted that it would partner with the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) in Zaria, on the training of aviators.

He further stated that the institution would enable AIB, which had not been charging money for its services, to earn money by training people from both Africa and outside the continent.

The commissioner explained that it had drawn up a curriculum from Cranfield University, Singapore Aviation Training Institute, as it planned to establish a world-class training school.

Olateru stated that it was important to also cooperate with various government agencies and other institutions, for training and successful accident investigation.

He said: “We had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Lagos, University of Ilorin and another University in the United Kingdom.

“We hope to sign such MoU with more Nigerian agencies such as the Nigerian Navy and Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA).

Olateru said the AIB had applied to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), to grant it licence to enable it deploy drones at crash sites.
