As the rainy season sets in, he emphasized the importance of accurate weather forecasting and preparedness.

Captain Najomo urged airlines to brief their crew members on the latest weather conditions before each flight.

He stressed the need for pilots to take necessary precautions to avoid adverse weather conditions.

“Pilots ensure that, you take the correct weather report before you fly, make sure that you avoid all adverse weather because we are now in the rainy season”. 

The Acting DGCA also advised pilot to take extra fuel on board to ensure safe diversion in case of an emergency.
