NCAA to Revoke Licence of Private Jet Owners Operating As Commercial

Date:

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has warned those with Permit for Non-Commercial Flight (PNCF), private jet owners, to stop operating as commercial flight or face hard penalties, amongst which is to revoke their permits.

The director of public affairs & consumer protection, NCAA, Michael Achimug, said it is not permissible for holders of PNCF to use their aircraft to carry passenger’s cargo or mail for hire or reward (commercial operations or charter services).

“In line with Section 32 (4) of the Civil Aviation Act 2022, the NCAA will not hesitate to initiate enforcement actions against any PNCF holder found guilty of illegal operations with suspension, withdrawal or revocation of their Permit for Non-Commercial flight.

“The public is hereby notified that it is illegal to engage PNCF holders for commercial purposes,” Achimugu said.

Michael Achimug also said presently, NCAA officials have been posted to General Aviation Terminals (GAT), and private wings of the airports in order to monitor activities of the PNCF holders.

“The NCAA wishes to restate its zero tolerance for violations of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2023 and shall continue to enforce strict compliance through the application of appropriate sanctions,” he added.
