The Federal Executive Council has approved plans to establish the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) Training School in the country.
The AIB Commissioner, Mr Akin Olateru, confirmed the development at the monthly Gateway Forum organised by the League of Airports and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC), in Lagos on Saturday.
Olateru noted that it would partner with the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) in Zaria, on the training of aviators.
He further stated that the institution would enable AIB, which had not been charging money for its services, to earn money by training people from both Africa and outside the continent.
The commissioner explained that it had drawn up a curriculum from Cranfield University, Singapore Aviation Training Institute, as it planned to establish a world-class training school.
