ONC Coordinators Greater Mbarara Sub-region Team visits Base7 International Aviation School

During the school’s monitoring week as mandated by the Office of the National Chairman, Kyambogo, the ONC Greater Mbarara Coordinators led by Team Leader Muhangi Zephline took an opportunity to visit Base7 International Aviation School found in Nyakisharara Airfield in Mbarara District on Ibanda-Kamwenge road.
The team met with Mr. Ham Kamuntu, one of the Directors of the Aviation school who welcomed them and took them through the various activities and courses of study they offer at the facility (Mbarara branch), which include namely;
Base7 is a fully registered and recognized aviation school that has been in operation for some years and has trained various pilots some working in Airforce, charter planes, and private jets owned by Business people, among others.

The team further found out that the Aviation School was given the mandate to outsource for a private investor/partner to upgrade the Airfield into an international modernized Airport, a project they plan to commence soon.

It is believed that more than 90% of air traffic for any country is determined by the size of the economy (measured by Gross Domestic Product) of that country. As Uganda’s economy continues to grow, the country’s air traffic grows and more air operators are subsequently attracted to benefit from the passenger and cargo traffic.
It is anticipated that the country’s air traffic will follow the same positive trend. There is also a lot of potential in the horticultural industry and mining industries among others. Most of Uganda’s exports to Europe and other foreign markets comprise fresh produce, including flowers, and fish among others, and by producing many pilots will ease the Air transport sector.

The Base7 director appreciated the work of the new Manager ONC Office SPA Hajjati Namyalo Uzeiye and the Mbarara/Nkore team for the good work they are doing across the region. He was happy to have a good time with the “Bazukulu ba Mzee “.
