Simaero, the Presidential Amnesty Programme of Nigeria, and Alom Aviation, Together to Train Nigerian Pilots on Embraer ERJ 145.

Representatives from the Presidential Amnesty Programme and Alom Aviation visited the Simaero training center in Johannesburg to celebrate the graduation of pilots sponsored on ERJ 145.

Last week, we had the privilege of welcoming esteemed representatives from the Nigerian Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) and Alom Aviation to our Johannesburg Training Center. This tour visit was the perfect occasion to celebrate the remarkable achievement of eight talented Nigerian pilots who have successfully completed their initial type-rating training on the Embraer ERJ 145, provided by the Simaero ATO and sponsored by PAP and Alom Aviation.

These graduations not only signify the dedication and hard work of these pilots but also underscore the collaborative efforts of PAP, Alom Aviation, and Simaero in advancing the aviation landscape in Nigeria and fostering the growth and development of skilled commercial pilots within the country.

“The successful qualification of these pilots is a testament to the rigorous standards and quality training provided by Simaero. More than acquiring the required technical skills, we aimed at equipping them with the confidence and proficiency to embark on their careers as commercial aviators. We are incredibly proud to have played a part in their journey and are confident that they will succeed in their future endeavors,” states Keith Roseveare, General Manager of Simaero South Africa.

The entire Simaero team extends our heartfelt congratulations to each member of the graduating crew. We also express our sincere gratitude to Maj. Gen Barry Ndiomu (rtd)mni. Interim Administrator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Wilfred Musa, Head of Reintegration, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig. Gen.
