The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has graduated the first set of Super Mushshak Instructor Pilots. The successful conversion of these pilots will enhance pilot training which will in turn impact positively on operational effectiveness of the NAF especially in its fight against insurgency and   other criminalities within the country.

Furthermore, it will boost the training of young pilots as 30 officers have already been selected to commence training with the newly trained Instructor Pilots. 

According to a statement issued on Friday by NAF Director of Public Relations & Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar who presented certificates to the graduating Instructor Pilots, stated that training has remained a major means of transformation over the ages.

According to him, the importance of training informed the choice of “human capacity development through robust and result oriented training for enhanced professional performance,” as the first key driver to the attainment of his vision for the Nigerian Air Force.

It will be recalled that the Nigerian Air Force inducted the Super Mushshak aircraft into the NAF inventory on December 5, 2016 to address the challenge of training pilots.

The graduation marked the final takeover of the aircraft as Nigerian Pilots can now fly and train other ab initio student pilots.
