A passion for aviation from the beginning

“When I was young, I used to wonder how an aircraft, being a very huge mass, floats in the air. That gave me a lot of curiosity about aviation which then turned into a passion.’’

The nicest part of working at NACO

“For me, it is rewarding to be a part of a team that is responsible for designing various types of airports globally with a keen focus on sustainable aviation. I find it personally satisfying to know that my contributions are instrumental in turning the airport projects into reality.”

“In my role as an Airport Systems Engineer, I have had the privilege of working on global airport design projects. My responsibilities encompass apron systems design, with a particular emphasis on implementing compliant apron floodlighting solutions, aeronautical ground lighting, and signage design. Additionally, I have been given the opportunity to oversee an ongoing project. I have also been deeply involved in assessing sustainable aviation solutions, not only in Africa but on a global scale. One of my main focuses has been exploring the potential of electric flights in Southern Africa, aiming at enhancing connectivity in the region.”

“Our team does not limit itself to traditional approaches; instead, we actively seek innovative ways to bring transformative changes to the aviation industry. This aspect of our work is incredibly exhilarating. Each day at NACO presents an opportunity for continuous learning and growth.”
