Expert backs Nationwide

By Troy Martens and Sapa

This is the view of Tom Chalmers, respected editor of World Air News about the suspension of Nationwide Airlines flights.

Chalmers said the reason that Nationwide was suspended had nothing to
do with the incident of the engine falling out of the plane, "as it is
designed to do in order to save the wing".

"The whole thing has developed into a paper chase. The Civil Aviation
Authority (CAA) is claiming the grounding was done because their paper
work was not in order.

'We hope that by the end of the week the airline will take to the skies again'
From my knowledge everything is in order, but the authority just keeps asking for more and more," said Chalmers.

"The CAA now want paper work and information about a 767 dating back
years to when the aircraft was owned and operated by Air Canada.

By Staff Reporters and Sapa

The chief executive officer of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA),
Zakes Mayeza, is leaving the organisation and the commissioner of Civil
Aviation, Gawie Bestbier, is relinquishing his post in the middle of
the Nationwide airline crisis.

This comes as the CAA and the airline reached agreement on what was required to get the airline back in the air.

The agreement between Nationwide and the CAA was confirmed by both
parties on Tuesday, but was overshadowed by confirmation that Mayeza
was leaving the helm of the CAA after his contract ended.

'Once Nationwide is back in the air, it will be the safest airline'
All
Nationwide's aircraft were grounded by the CAA a week ago after the
authority found administrative shortcomings in the airline's
maintenance records.

The CAA's investigation into the loss of the Boeing 737-200's engine allegedly revealed the administrative shortcomings.

The South African Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Nationwide
Airlines have agreed to a media blackout regarding the grounding of the
carrier.

They said they would no longer make independent
statements to the press, but would speak jointly on the process, it was
announced on Tuesday.

This was "to avoid causing confusion", said CAA spokesperson Phindiwe Gwebu.

The
CAA grounded Nationwide on Friday when it suspended its approval of the
airline's aircraft maintenance organisation (AMO) and suspended the
certificates of airworthiness of Nationwide's fleet of aircraft.

On Monday, acting commissioner for civil aviation Gawie Bestbier upheld the CAA move after considering an appeal by Nationwide.

He said he had given the carrier guidelines on how to meet the CAA's requirements.
