I have been reading a lot on BASA (I have a post on this to follow) and National carrier. .
Where do you stand on the question?
I found the comments below quite interesting.
Government should invest in the revival of the National Carrier. The argument broadly circles around Nigeria’s competitiveness under its active BASAs in that it is believed that a National Carrier would be able to operate in foreign countries much like Qatar Airways, British Airways, Ethiopian Airlines and other foreign national carriers. .
In addition, it has been argued that a national carrier would be based in the Country, thereby creating jobs and business opportunities for the citizens of Nigeria. However, the reality of operating a national carrier is not as clear cut. A national carrier, unlike other Government owned institutions, MUST be run as a business. In arguing for a national carrier, a lot of confidence is inadvertently placed on the Ministry of Aviation’s ability to operate the national carrier as a profitable business. The Ministry would be expected take pains to ensure that costing, pricing, advertising, marketing and other business fundamentals are effectively and efficiently carried out to a professional standard.

On the heels of another Airline ceasing operation, I sincerely hope we utilise the great skills amongst Nigerians to make things work, by all means use international skills sets to make it work if required.
British Airways’ second Airbus A350-1000 has just been delivered to the London-based carrier. This aircraft is registered G-XWBB and will continue to serve Madrid alongside G-XWBA .

This is where the magic happens...
During the takeoff roll we only make essential calls in accordance with our standard operating procedures.
We use 80kts as the difference between a low speed and a high speed rejected takeoff.
Before 80kts we will stop for any minor or major indication. After 80kts we only stop for more serious events.
We have a speed we bug on our instruments called V1. This is a speed we calculate based upon the weather, the weight of the aircraft, the runway length and other things, for example if the aircraft has been deiced. After V1 has been called, we will take the aircraft into the air no matter what happens, as it’s safer than trying to stop on the runway.
Have you ever experienced a rejected takeoff? #rejected#takeoff#speed
Had so much fun on my last four day trip that I decided to do it all over again 😜 🛫
Working two 4 days trips with a day off in between can be tough. But it’s worth it. Why? The way I see it, it’s four more days of “time building”. ✈️ And four days closer to reaching one of my career goals, upgrading to captain 👨🏻✈️ What are some of your career goals? Respond in the comments! 👇
