AIR BOTSWANA OPERATION NOT PARTISAN

 AIR BOTSWANA OPERATION NOT PARTISAN


01 May 2019,

PRESS RELEASE
AIR BOTSWANA OPERATION NOT PARTISAN
Air Botswana wishes to distance itself from the discussions doing the rounds on social media regarding the non-operation of flights to Maun during the weekend of 17-19 May 2019 as being politically motivated.
The airline considers this inappropriate and damaging to its image and reputation. The decision to rationalize the schedule of the airline is purely based on its current resource and capacity constraints. This situation, the objective of which is to operate a lean and efficient operation, is closely monitored with a view to availing extra capacity to our passengers as soon as resources become available. It is in the interest of the airline to fully revert to its schedule, as soon as it is practical to do so sustainably.
We wish to commit to our valuable passengers that as soon as the Embraer E170 is integrated into service, Air Botswana will fully resume its operation and restore its schedule integrity.
Air Botswana has a Board of Directors and its decisions are purely commercial and based on sound Corporate Governance practices and not on partisan politics.

Boeing Announces fixes for its 737 max aircraft.

Boieng has issued changes to controversial control system linked to two fatal crashes of its 737 Max planes in the past five months.
     
   But it is still not certain when the planes which were grounded worldwide this month,will be allowed to fly.

  Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the accidents.

  As part of the upgrade,Boeing  will install an extra warning system on all 737max aircraft.which was previously an optional safety feature.

Neither of the planes operated by lion air in Indonesia and Ethiopian Airlines,that were involved in the fatal crashes carried the alert systems ,which are designed to warn pilots when sensors produce contradictory readings.

Boeing  said that airlines would no longer be charged extra for that safety system to be installed.

 The plane maker has issued an upgrade to the software that linked to the accident.

The manoeuvering characteristics augmentation system better known as MCA's,is software designed to help prevent the 737 max from stalling.
  It reacts when  sensors in the nose  of the aircraft show the jet is climbing at too steep an angle,which can can cause a plane to stall.

 But an investigation of the  lion airflight last year suggested the system malfunctioned and forced the plane nose down more than 20 times before it crashed into the sea.

The Us Federal Aviation Administration (faa)says there are similarities between that crash and the Ethiopian accident on 10 march.

Therefore Boeing has redesigned, the software so that it will disable MCAS if it receives conflicting data from its sensors.

And lastly Boeing said a final version of the software would be submitted to the  federal Aviation Authority (Faa) by the end of the week.

Precision Air Services PLC has launched an apprenticeship programme for young aircraft technicians as part of efforts to combat scarcity of licenced aircraft engineers in the Tanzanian market. 

The airline says the programme is also aimed at developing needed skills for its technical unit through field attachment, volunteering and apprenticeship. 

In the first intake of the programme, the company has recruited 22 candidates who will undergo on the job training at the engineering and maintenance department.

Precision Air managing director Sauda Rajab said finding needed skills in the aviation industry in Tanzania is one of the biggest challenges, which the firm, as one of the industry players, cannot sit back and complain.

“That is the reason we had to come up with the programme to help find solutions for the benefit of the industry. We are proud of our contribution in developing needed skills in the aviation industry in Tanzania. Our aim is to develop as many licenced engineers as possible to meet our skills demands and for the industry as well,” she said. 

She pointed out that it takes about eight years to develop a fully trained, licenced engineer. 

“I expect other players will take similar initiatives instead of relying on expatriates alone…That way, we can strengthen the industry and help create employment for the youth.” 

In 2017, the airline signed a skills development agreement with the National Institute of Transport to host students who pursue different courses at the institute for practical training, with the possibility of permanent employment based on their performance during the internship and apprenticeship programmes. 

So far Precision Air has trained a total of 33 interns since the inception of the programme.
