Magnus Aircraft's new partner is the Nigerian Civil Aviation Training Center (NCAT), which was established in 1964 as a joint programme of the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to create a centre for aviation training in Nigeria. Since then, the Federal Government of Nigeria has assumed full responsibility for the ongoing management and operation of the college.
The agreement was signed by the Nigerian company representative Captian Alkali Modigbo and László Boros, CEO of Magnus Aircraft Zrt.
Under the cooperation, the parties will establish channels for the exchange of information on aeronautical technology and mutually promote the development of Magnus Aircraft aircraft for the Nigerian market. Following the establishment of the Nigerian subsidiary, the assembly of Fusion aircraft will be carried out at the assembly plant located at NCAT's site in Zaria, where Magnus Aircraft Zrt. will provide the professional competencies and supply of aircraft parts and accessories for both assembly and sub-assembly.
The event was attended in person by Senator Hadi Sirika, Nigerian Minister of Aviation. The contract also marked the start of the procurement process for the first two Fusion aircraft.
