NAMA MD INSPECTS KADUNA ILS AS AIRPORT TRAFFIC SOARS

The Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Capt. Fola Akinkuotu has commended the performance of the newly installed and calibrated Instrument Landing System (ILS) as well as other navigational aids at the Kaduna International Airport, describing them as “highly sophisticated and dependable equipment.” Capt. Akinkuotu who made this observation when he led top management staff of the agency and media representatives on an assessment tour of the facilities noted that “the successful landing of the Ethiopian Airline Jet- Boeing 787 and a deluge of other local flights at Kaduna ever since the closure of Abuja airport is a pointer to the fact that our navigational aids are performing optimally and can contend with the increased traffic on a 24-hour basis.”  Akinkuotu who is also an aeronautical engineer extolled the ingenuity of NAMA engineers “for doing a good job on the installation of the ILS,” describing them as highly experienced. He explained that the components of the ILS including the Distance Measuring Equipment (DME), Localizer and the Glideslope have two channels so that while one is working, the other is on standby, ensuring uninterrupted and seamless performance. While disclosing that the agency has two generators to ensure steady power supply, the NAMA boss however lamented that the agency was spending humongous sums in providing power to the navigational facilities as that of the national grid is either very low or epileptic. To mitigate this challenge, he said plans were in the pipeline to deploy solar energy to ensure uninterrupted power supply to all the equipment and cooling systems.
