NIGERIA-Aero Airline has finished plans to begin third party C-Checks of medium sized aircraft, says the company's managing director, Captain Akin George.

In 2011, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) approved Aero as an Aircraft Maintenance Organization (AMO) for “A” and “B” checks on Boeing Airplanes, various levels of checks on other airplanes, boroscope, wheels and brakes, air frames and avionics and battery “C” checks on Boeing.

"A lot has been said about carrying out “C” and “D” checks abroad," George says. “The expected savings currently anticipated from doing the checks in Nigeria are quite little due to the current taxation policy.”
