No Boeing 737 Max 8 flying in Nigerian airspace, says NCAA

March 12, 2019


The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) gave assurance on Tuesday on the state of aircraft flying in the country’s airspace.

The NCAA said there was no cause for worry as no Boeing 747 Max 8 is presently in operation in the country.

Its spokesman, Sam Adurogboye disclosed this in a statement.

He assured the flying public of their safety, stating that there is no cause for alarm.

He said : ” Presently, the accident aircraft type, Boeing 737 Max 8 is not in operation in the Country.

“However, the Authority, in line with its Safety Oversight mandate enshrined in the Civil Aviation Act 2006, is consciously monitoring the development (s) with a view to take the necessary steps that will enhance the safety of all aircraft in operation within the Nigerian airspace.”

Recall that an Ethiopian Airline B737 -Max 8 crashed on Sunday 10th March 2019 killing all the souls on board after which the Airline and some other countries have grounded the accident aircraft type in their operations.

He further said : ” This is to assure the public that NCAA will continue to ensure that safety regulations are strictly adhered to for the safety of all in Nigeria.
Our heart is with the Airline and families of the victims of the accident. “

If the Ethiopian Airways crash is similar to that of Lion Air (both of which were 737 max 8 planes) then it's probably more of a pilot error than the plane's. You see, Boeing installed a new security system that some of these pilots failed to learn, it's called MCAS. It is currently the most probable cause of the Lion Air crash, and if confirmed to be true, it'll mean all the pilots had to do to avoid the crash was to push two switches.

If it's the case also for Ethiopian Airways, then it'll be cheaper to educate pilots on the new systems, especially the ones that have the "I've been flying 737s for years" attitude.

But if there's another fault, especially one that can be traced to all other 737 max 8s, then instant grounding is the right choice.

This is the reason why countries like USA and Canada have not grounded the plane yet.

Grow some balls and ban airlines from buying it.
Even Boeing suspended its production.
Two crashes in less than 6 months? Something must be wrong with this fleet of Boeing aircrafts.
