Major stakeholders of Arik Air have begun talks with foreign investors as part of plans to pay debts owed to the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) and other creditors.

The Guardian yesterday learnt that the move, towards a new partnership with investors, was to fast track payment of N160 billion to the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), for the return of the airlines’ operations to its owners.

Arik Air was in February taken over by AMCON, the special debt recovery vehicle of the Federal Government over alleged mismanagement and failure of the erstwhile management to pay debts.

Spokesperson of the NCAA, Sam Adurogboye said the GSI course was to ensure airworthiness, while inspectors develop additional proficiency in the processes and procedures of certificating an applicant for Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO) and Air Operators Certificate (AOC).

The course covers the five phases of the certification process and the airworthiness inspector’s role in each phase.

Adurogboye said NCAA would continuously embark on human capacity building through effective professional development and relevant training.
