The workshop attracted representatives from Guinea and Liberia to chart the way forward for improved safety on air transportation in the country.

Abubakarr Kamara, Director of Sierra Leone Civil Aviation Authority, said the   international civil aviation organization had audited every state on how far they had gone in meeting the standards and practices in aviation safety.

“By 2017, there are targets set particularly in Africa to meet certain safety level”, Kamara said, adding that the workshop was geared towards meeting one of those requirements which was known as ‘performance based navigation’.

He further affirmed that at the end of the workshop those concerned with air traffic control services in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea would be able to meet the technical requirement in terms of knowledge and experience to handle aviation issues, especially in clearing aircrafts and dealing with aviation issues in these countries.

Mohamed Alieu Jalloh, Deputy Minister of Transport and Aviation, said government was committed to improving aviation and aviation related development programs.

Captain Moses Weefur, a representative from Liberia Civil Aviation Authority, said they recognized the need for air safety in the region.
