Posted 1 April 2016 · Add Comment

The third Nigerian Business Aviation Conference demonstrated the country's business aviation progression, and the improvement still needed to match more established regions.

Over 150 delegates attended the event, which was opened by CEO of EAN Aviation and host of NBAC 2016, Segun Demuren.
 
Demuren emphasised on the expansion of Nigerian business aviation, in terms of corporate jet users, medevac, surveillance, logistics, agriculture, cargo, security and rescue services.
 
“Commercial aviation flies to where the money is, whilst business aviation flies to where the money will be,” he said.
 
The conference mixed established aviation businesses with newly developed companies, allowing them to discuss the challenges Nigerian business aviation still faces.
 
Taxation and safety procedures proved to be topics of debate amongst delegates, as well as the idea of Nigerians being trained internationally in order to return with the skills to develop MRO.
 
The conference ended with the discussion of developing a Nigerian business aviation group, to meet quarterly and discuss the education of the government about regulations and policies.
