Airspace: NAMA Moves To Eliminate Blind Spots

The Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Capt. Fola Akinkuotu has expressed optimism that the challenge of radio blind spots in some parts of the nation’s upper airspace would soon be history as the ongoing massive deployment of VSAT network and VHF radio systems embarked upon by the agency was yielding positive results.
In an effort to eliminate blind spots from the nation’s airspace, NAMA recently completed the installation of a VSAT station at the Jos airport in Plateau State, thereby integrating the VHF radio into the network in that sector.
Akinkuotu stressed that the installation of the VSAT stations will be done in 26 airports while the VHF radios will be installed in 14 strategic remote sites to finally eliminate radio blind spots in the upper airways segment of the entire Nigerian airspace.
