Ghana's Presidential Jet Unequipped For Continuing Long Stretch Excursions- US-Based Aviation Expert

An Aviation Master situated in the US, Mr Sean Mendis, has said that Ghana's presidential jet, the Hawk, isn't the best jet for long excursions.

He said it might set out on such excursions notwithstanding, that will need a higher specialized help and with less gear and travellers installed.

He said these when found out if the Bird of prey is reasonable for long hour trips while talking in an interview with TV3's Komla Adom on the noontime news on Monday 27.

"No," he replied. That's what he added "the Bird of prey isn't the ideal jet for long stretch travel. It is ideally appropriate for trips from Ghana to any place in Africa, perhaps a few pieces of Europe. If you are going to Asia, assuming you are going to North America, the Hawk will want to make it happen yet will require higher specialized stuff.

"Ideally, it can presumably do around 3000 miles which are around 6 hours. It is fit for flying further with less baggage, with fewer individuals ready."

The meeting depended on the reactions against President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo by North Tongu Individual from Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, for what he accepts is the President's appearing luxury concerning the flights sanctioned for his excursions abroad.

The Overseer of Interchanges at the Administration Mr Eugene Arhin said he was trusting that Mr Okudzeto Ablakwa would back up his case that President Akufo-Addo made a trip to Brussels on board a sanctioned plane however he has neglected to do such.

Mr Arhin excused the cases and further said that unashamedly, Mr Ablakwa wouldn't talk about it, not to mention apologize for it.

"Once more, after being gotten out on the Accra-Brussels-Kigali lie, the Decent Individual from Parliament attempts to legitimize the supposed "21-hour" cost of the trip with some voodoo charges. What is stunning, in his Friday explanation, is the confirmation of the way that he doesn't know beyond a shadow of a doubt the expense of the sanction.

"The purported €480,000 cost he is quibbling about is the consequence of mystery, and on the dependence of a 'liberal 21-hour cost examination'. He gives no proof or narrative confirmation at all to back up his €480,000 cost guarantee since he has none. Yet again the Fair Ablakwa views these assaults on the President as his pathway to political unmistakable quality through bad misleading publicity, not entirely settled to seek after this course, regardless of how ludicrous and offending his explanations are.

"He further expresses that, assuming Brussels Air terminal was shut because of the strike, President Akufo-Addo might have shown up in Kigali "through the many (other) occupied travel courses", for instance, Paris. For Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the President, sitting in a bistro at the train station in Paris, with essentially no authority security around him, and holding on to board a train, is of no second. The State owes it an obligation to be fastidious about these things, even though the President may not be particular about them.

"Is it OK Hon? Ablakwa that the President can't go to the commitment that he is investing his significant energy to make because corresponding flights get dropped? Or on the other hand that he needs to stick around air terminals since flights have been postponed? Or on the other hand, as occurred in his last excursion, he shows up at his objective from a short-term trip with practically no baggage of his showing up with him, to such an extent that he couldn't have a difference in garments to make the arrangement he went for in any case? It is a disgrace that a fair Individual from Parliament has no respect, at all, for the security and wellbeing of his Leader."

Mr Arhin, prior demonstrated that President Akufo-Addo ventured out to Brussels on a business method for transport.

As a matter of some importance, Mr Arhin made sense of, President Akufo-Addo went from Accra to Paris on Sunday, June 19 on a business flight.

He said even the Air France FL visited Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso before continuing to the French capital.

"President Akufo-Addo's all's 12-part designation voyaged business," Mr Arhin said in the proclamation on Friday, June 24.

"Upon appearance in Paris, President Akufo-Addo and his designation ventured out using the train to Brussels to go to the European Improvement Days occasion, where, on Tuesday, 21st June 2022, he was a featured expert, and later held gatherings with the Leader of European Speculation Bank on two critical branches of knowledge."

The assertion conceded that the president's next stumble on Sunday, June 26 will be by the utilization of the Presidential Jet.
