ZAF TO ATTACH PILOTS TO ZAMBIA AIRWAYS

By Rueben Chomba-Government  will soon start attaching the Zambia Air force -ZAF pilots and aircraft technicians to Zambia Airways once the national airline is launched.

Defense Minister Davies Chama says this will help the officers to enhance their skills.

Mr. Chama says this will be done through a program that ZAF has embarked on to empower its personnel.

He was speaking during the commemoration parade to mark 10 thousand accident free flying hours from January to December 2020 in Lusaka today.

The Minister said attaining the 10 thousand accident free flying hours is an indicator of increased operational efficiency and increased flight safety adherence by ZAF officers.

Mr. Chama has since assured ZAF and other defense wings of government support in ensuring that they have necessary equipment to defend the country.

Speaking at the same event, ZAF commander Lieutenant General David Muma said the air force will continue to defend the country’s airspace against all domestic and foreign elements through various air operations.

Meanwhile ZAF chief operations Brigadier General Willam Lungu said the expansion and growth strategy for the air force has helped to achieve the 10 thousand accident free flying hours.
