Quorum aviation, which recently secured its Air Operators’ Certificate (AOC), on Thursday, unveiled its management team comprising experienced hands in and outside of the aviation industry.
The company, which has launched charter operations into the oil and gas sector, among other areas, secured its AOC after scaling through the five rigorous stages of the exercise with the regulatory Authority, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
Managing director of the company, Mr. Abiola Lawal, while speaking to journalists at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, said Quorum has imbibed safety as its core mission statement and will do everything possible to ensure that safety is not jeopardized.
He said ‘Our target is to be able to support off-shore exploration, the oil and gas business. However, securing the AOC is a major milestone; the AOC is a rigorous, exhaustive and very expensive one too but we are grateful that the Authority puts us through the process. There are five phases of multi-layer aspects including manpower, facility, demonstration, manuals and others.
“But we give kudos to the NCAA which ensures that all these requirements are met as part of the laid down safety procedures. At Quorum Aviation, we have imbibed safety as our core mission statement”, he said.
Speaking on the composition of the board, Lawal said they have deliberately chosen the best hands in the sector, adding that corporate governance is key to the success of the company. for more information Click here
