FirstNation temporarily suspends operations

FirstNation Airways temporarily suspended all its operations, as its fleet of three A320s is ferried to Istanbul for maintenance. The airline plans to resume services from Lagos to Abuja and Port Harcourt in early July. FirstNation Airways denies it has been grounded by the NCAA.

    All 3 A320 have been due for C checks since January 2012, but they have illegally gotten extension from the NCAA. The regulation clearly states that any aircraft due for a check may only get a maximum of 10% extension for the purpose of ferrying to a maintenance facility, and not for commercial operations.

      If this is the case, would there be any reprimands from the international bodies or it’s purlely to be sorted out on a ntional level?

      Your response is suspect at best. Nevertheless, it is very bizarre for an airline to send its entire fleet for maintenance checks all at the same time?!

    Good riddance to rubbish. They can’t even schedule C-checks without suspending all operations. What a joke that man Odukoya is.

    People, while just casually combing through for any new videos, this this 2010 upload was found.
    Anyone remember the incident details?
    Why were the emergency services that slow to arrive on the scene?

    Ref: June 3

    See this A340-300 18R approach,

    Around 2:50 in the clip:

    Altitude: +/- 1150 ft
    3.6 Nm (6.6 km) from runway end

    Position 1 minute later @ 3:50

    The last options to avoid the buildings if the the plane can’t reach the airfield:-

    The green network of swamps just above Alimosho to the west.
    Unlike JFK, no Hudson river available.

    What best could crews make of the situation?
    Is this a scenario that could be incorporated into future training procedures?
