Earlier known as the Nigerian Civil Aviation Training Centre, the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) was found and established in the year 1964 and was funded by the Civil Aviation Department in the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Aviation in Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria.

Thus, the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology is located in Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria, and it’s operating as a higher education institute in Nigeria.

After the establishment of the school in 1964, the school began operations in 1966 with technical support from the United Nations Development Programme and the International Civil Aviation Organization.

NCAT was to be a training center for Nigerian and African pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers, navigation aid technicians and it subsequently created a flying school, air traffic services, and communications school, and aeronautical electronics and telecommunications school to meet its objectives.

As growth is consistent in every business, the college began to offer specialized training courses in instrument landing systems, jet simulation, airline transport, and VHF omnidirectional range in the late 1970s.

The Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) has about 26 training aircraft, which are;

  • 14 single-engine TAMPICO TB9
  • 5 single TRINIDAD TB20
  • 3 twin-engine Beech 58
  • 2 BELL 206 Helicopters,
  • A B737 aircraft for cabin crew training
  • 1 TBM 850 aircraft for flight training.

We can recall that the college was seeking to become a degree-awarding institution through affiliation with a foreign university in 2010.

Also, as of 2010, about 6,500 students who offer a course in flying, aircraft maintenance, air traffic control, and aeronautical telecommunications had graduated from the college.

NCAT MISSION STATEMENT

To consistently provide the aviation industry with professionals and other personnel through training and related services for safe transportation under international standards.
