What you should know
In its audit findings, which was signed by the Director-General of NCAA, Captain Nuhu Musa on the 2nd of April 2021, the apex regulator stated, “that in the case of management personnel required for Commercial Air Transport Operations, Azman Air was found not to be in compliance with the provisions of Nig.CARs 220.127.116.11 (a) and (e) (2).
The evidence of implementation of CAP must be found satisfactory by the Authority prior to considering the restoration of the privileges of the operations specifications.
The Authority’s team of inspectors have concluded an audit of your organization and herewith attached is the summary of the findings and non-conformance to the Nig. CARs requirements and the procedures in your organization’s approved manuals, respectively.
Your organization is therefore required to determine the root causes of these findings and develop appropriate and effective corrective action plans (CAPs) acceptable to the Authority to address them.
Please note that evidence of implementation of the CAPs, specifically for Level 1 findings must be found satisfactory by the Authority prior to considering the restoration of the privileges of the Operations Specifications Part A3 and D43 to resume the operation of the aircraft type,” the letter read.
Level 1 finding means any significant non-compliance with Nig. CARs, which would lower the operational standards and probably lead to hazard in an aircraft. This includes non-compliance with authorizations and limitations on aircraft components that the AOC/AMO/CAMO may have on their operations specifications.
