The global body for Air Traffic Engineers is asking the Nigerian government to upgrade the navigational and surveillance equipment at the nation’s airports.

The body made the demand in Abuja on Friday at the close of its 46th General Assembly.

Addressing the gathering, the President of the International Federation of Air Traffic Safety Electronic Association (ATSEPS), Mr Daniel Boulet, explained that the deployment of automated machines would create safer airways and reduce human errors.

Mr Boulet also appealed to air traffic engineers to undergo certification programmes to meet with global best practices and take advantage of the technological revolution and advancement in the global aviation community.

“We always want to further our objects that are contained in the constitution and that is to enhance the safety of the air navigation system, raise the profile of the ATSEPS at work within the system as well as their qualifications.

“The infrastructure is not like what it is in the Western world. However, I think there is great promise with satellite based air navigation services and those kinds of things which can provide the necessary transport infrastructure required on the continent.”

Mr Boulet further pointed out that the most important thing was to make sure they were qualified to do the work.

“Every ATSEPS wants to do a top job, the best they can, but they need the training and they need the competency standards to do it and they need the support of the N.S.Ps.” (Channels TV)
