The Federal Government has stated its willingness to collaborate with Hungary’s Magnus Aircraft Manufacturing Industry to create an assembly plant and, later, begin aircraft production in Nigeria.
According to a statement released on Tuesday by the Director, Public Affairs, Ministry of Aviation, James Odaudu, the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, announced the government’s aim during an inspection visit to the aircraft sector in Pogany, Hungary. According to Sirika, aircraft manufacture in Nigeria will aid the country’s development as a regional aviation superpower.
“If we get into business with them, we might start with assembling plants and then move into manufacturing,” he said.
Aerobatics, according to the statement, is the technique of performing maneuvers with aircraft attitudes that are not normally used in regular flights. They are used for training, enjoyment, amusement, and sport in planes and gliders.
The minister expressed satisfaction with the features and stated that he was eager to assist in the construction of the planes in Nigeria.
One of the aircraft’s distinctive features, according to him, is that it runs on regular vehicle gasoline and outperforms any training aircraft of its sort.
The minister, who was at the site on the company’s request, said the potential cooperation with the aircraft maker will be submitted to further investigation to check the market and the government’s willingness to invest a considerable amount of money, according to the statement.
With the continued implementation of the development strategy, which he said placed an emphasis on public-private partnerships, the government said it had established an appealing environment for international investors in Nigeria, particularly in the aviation industry.
