The Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation and Prevention Bureau (AIB Ghana) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ghana Air Force (GAF) to enhance their collaboration in conducting aircraft accident and incident investigations in line with international standards.
The MoU allows AIB Ghana to use part of the Air Force Laboratory (AFLA) building in Tamale for two years, subject to renewal based on GAF’s needs, to establish an Aircraft Safety Laboratory. AIB Ghana will also equip and furnish the AFLA building.
The Aircraft Safety Laboratory will help improve aviation safety in Ghana and West Africa by providing state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for analyzing aircraft accidents and incidents.
AIB Ghana is an autonomous body established by His Excellency, The President of the Republic of Ghana, to investigate, prevent, regulate and oversee the management of aircraft accidents and incidents that occur in Ghana.
The MoU is in compliance with the Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) in the Annexes to the Chicago Convention, especially Annex 13.
