Nigerian Air Force Reactivates Combat Helicopters and ManufacturesPersonnelProtective Equipment

The Nigerian Air Force has recorded another tremendous achievement in its quest to enhance its operational effectiveness through robust logistics support and maintenance culture to sustain platforms and equipment towards tackling security challenges facing the Nation.
This was demonstrated at the 115 Special Operations Group, Port Harcourt as the Service commissioned another Mi-35P Helicopter, NAF 530, following a successful in-country reactivation after being out of use since June 2016.
The commissioning brings the number of Mi-35P Helicopter Gunships reactivated locally by the current NAF administration to two and it came barely a month after the successful in-house reactivation of an Alpha Jet aircraft, NAF 455, which has already been deployed to the frontlines to boost the morale of troops.
In his remarks at the commissioning ceremony, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar said he was delighted to witness the formal re-induction into service of NAF 530, noting that the successful in-house reactivation was an indication that the NAF has made significant progress in building its aircraft maintenance capacity.
Meanwhile Nigerian Air Force Investment Limited, has produced close to 40,000 face masks and 450 Personal Protective Equipment to assist in battling the COVID-19 Pandemic.
