The ongoing reactivation of the third EC-135 Helicopter, NAF 549, handed over to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), is progressing steadily as NAF engineers and technicians, assisted by members of the foreign technical assistance team, have successfully assembled the Main Gear Box (MGB) and commenced installation on the aircraft. Completion of the work would bring to 15 the number of previously unserviceable aircraft that have been reactivated by the current Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, in the last 4 years. Most of these reactivations as well as the ongoing Periodic Depot Maintenance (PDM) on various aircraft types, including 2 C-130H, 3 Alpha Jet and 3 L-39ZA aircraft, are being done in-country in order to build the capacity of NAF personnel to enable them eventually carry out such high level maintenance activities, independently and effectively, in the future.
