Nigeria to dispose of part of Presidential fleet

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari pledged to reduce the size of the country’s Presidential Air Fleet within the Nigerian Air Force as part of an election campaign cost-cutting package. It was confirmed at the beginning of this month that two of 16 aircraft are to be put up for sale. A Falcon 7X (registered 5N-FGU) currently in Abuja, joins a Hawker 4000 (5N-FGX) available for inspection in Zurich. Both aircraft are being offered for sale (in US Dollars) with interested bidders given a period of four weeks to place offers. It is understood that a review of the Presidential Air Fleet is ongoing and that other aircraft may be transferred to the regular Nigerian Air Force fleet in due course.
