NAS Afghanistan Renews IATA De-icing and Anti-icing Services Certification

Kabul, Afghanistan: Thursday, April 12, 2018

Kabul, Afghanistan, 12 April 2018 - National Aviation Services (NAS) has renewed its International Air Transport Association (IATA) certification for de-icing and anti-icing services for airlines at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan. The certification is now renewed till 2020.

With winter weather reaching sub-zero temperatures, snow and ice settles on the wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizers of the aircraft. This adds extra weight on the aircraft and disrupts air flow that reduces lift. It can also disrupt the movement of the wings' flaps and ailerons, which could lead to critical incidents or even could lead to crash the flights. This makes de-icing extremely important before take-off.

In 2016, NAS was the first ground handling company in Afghanistan to receive the IATA De-Icing/Anti-Icing Quality Control Pool (DAQCP) certification by following stringent international standards and safety procedures. The DAQCP currently consists of about 100 member a

Fly Africa prend son envol

Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire: Tuesday, October 31, 2017

FLY AFRICA, le livre co-écrit par Hassan El-Houry, un pionnier de l'industrie aéronautique africaine et Eric Kacou, un stratège et investisseur africain, a été lancé hier sur Amazon.

Le livre met en évidence comment l'aviation pourrait devenir l'une des plus grandes forces de l'Afrique, étayant sa croissance économique et la reliant au reste du monde. Pourtant, aujourd'hui, l'industrie aéronautique africaine est à la traîne. Cette disparité est rendue encore plus évidente par le fait que les Africains représentent 12% de la population mondiale et moins de 2% de ses voyageurs. Cette inégalité n'est pourtant pas inévitable.

L'aviation peut fournir un radeau de sauvetage revitalisant les économies nationales Africaines et contribuant au développement.

El-Houry: "Nous croyons que l'avenir de l'aviation se trouve en Afrique. A fur et à mesure que le continent s’accroît et que les économies continuent à se développer, nous y verrons apparaitre de plus e
