NCAT was designed to be a training centre for Nigerian and African pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers, and navigation aid technicians.
It subsequently created a flying school, air traffic services, and communications school, and aeronautical electronics and telecommunications school to meet its objectives.
In the late 1970s, it began giving specialised training courses in instrument landing systems, jet simulation, airline transport, and Very High Frequency (VHF) omnidirectional range.
