The Nigerian Air Force received the first four of ten Super Mushshak piston engine trainers less than two months after signing a contract with Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) Kamra. The aircraft were handed over on December 5, 2016, during a ceremony at Kaduna Air Base by Pakistan’s Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman, and Nigeria’s Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar. Pakistani instructors and technicians arrived with the aircraft, while Nigerian technicians are training in Pakistan. Deliveries came so quickly after the contract was signed on October 21 because PAC Kamra is loaning eight aircraft to Nigeria until new production aircraft can be delivered.
All four aircraft were flown to Kaduna on an Il-76 on December 1, with a further four expected to arrive at Kaduna by the second quarter of 2017.
