The Federal Government on Thursday took delivery of a 
calibration aircraft for the Nigerian aviation industry.
The aircraft is worth $8.5m.
This was announced by the Minister of Aviation, 
Hadi Sirika who announced on his Twitter handle 
that it would make Nigeria’s airspace safer.

In a delightful tone his tweet read, ”Just received
 new calibration aircraft for the country. Make
 is King Air 350i. Cost $8.5M. The agony of 
contracting it to South Africa or Niger at about 
$500K every 6 months is over. Our airspace is
 safer. Thanks Mr President, we started &
 finished during your regime

Providing further explanation on the usefulness
 of the aircraft, the minister said, “The purpose 
of this aircraft is to calibrate our equipment and
 aids in the country for the purpose of flight operations. 
We used to have one in Nigeria but for the last two decades,
 we never had one.”
Sirika revealed that the prompting for the purchase of the aircraft was 
when the reconstruction of the Abuja airport runway was 
ongoing, there was the need recalibrate all the landing 
aids at the time, which was actually the requirement.
“This is to ensure they are working in perfect 
order,” he added.
He, however, noted that at that time Nigeria did not
 have the capability as a country.
