He said three of the affected operators were to pay a fine ranging from N1.5 million to N2 million, while the fourth operator had its air operator certificate (AOC) suspended for 180 days.

He said the affected operators were caught when NCAA aviation safety inspectors (ASI) visited their premises.

According to him, a number of deficiencies, including non-implementation of training programmes for maintenance personnel as required and irregularities concerning helicopter flight identification were discovered during the inspection.
