The Minister who highlighted his 5-Point Agenda encapsulating Safety, Infrastructure, Support for local operators, Human Capacity Deployment and Revenue generation, said the agenda served as a guide in discharging the mandate of the president.

Keyamo urged the Task Force members to work diligently to restore confidence in the aviation industry, to eliminate illegal operations and also to ensure that every flight in the country’s skies adhered to the highest standards of safety and legality.

The Task Force members who have been carefully selected from within and outside the aviation industry were charged “To take inventory of all Private Non-commercial Flight (PNCF) holders and Air Operator Certificate (AOC) holders.

“To determine why the practice of illegal charters by PNCF holders persists in the country despite regulatory controls.

“To call in all professional licenses of pilots and crew in the country and determine their authenticity and validity.

“To recommend to the minister any additional measures to be taken by regulatory agencies to stem the ugly tide. To recommend appropriate sanctions to be imposed by the regulatory agencies on defaulters.
