Tanzania beats Malawi again: Chopper made in TZ set to fly

151

Tanzanian President John Magufuli continues to inspire his countrymen as the East African country has started making helicopters that will take to the skies in 2018.

According to reports, a Tanzanian technical college has made a two seater chopper which is in its final stages of production and will start flying trials once granted permission by the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority.

The programme was initiated by the Arusha Technical College, department of Mechanical and Engineering with the aim of producing choppers that will be available to Tanzanians at affordable prices.

Tanzanian choppers-ready to fly.

“We are complementing President Magufuli’s industrialisation policy in pioneering the first locally made helicopters that will be available to ordinary residents at affordable prices,” explained the man behind the ATC chopper project, Engineer Abdi Mjema.

The project began two months ago but now the chassis and the airframe for the first chopper are ready, the craft is expected to be ready in three weeks’ time.

“Once we get the aviation authority approval, we shall complete the most sensitive part of the helicopter mounting the main rotor,” said the engineer.

The college says when it gets a green light from Tanzanian authorities, it will be able to manufacture 20 choppers a year.

  1. Why should Malawi be beaten as if we are in a helicopter making competition,besides is it only Malawi which is not making choppers,why did the unpatriotic writer not mention that other nations not making choppers are aslo beaten,ist only a foolish child that speaks broadcast negative issues about his family.we’re tired of foolish and unpatriotic writers on fb

  6. The other problem in malawi is that we are still using the acts of laws which were made way back in the 60s which restricts the hiden potentials to come into operation, there is need of changing some acts laws.

  8. the problem of Tz (70% rural) is that instead of invest on small &medium processing industries to create markets for our poor farmers and boost their income,they are westing time trying to do what is sooner or later will be failure.

  9. 55years of having Polytchnic producing maintainance Engineers. we have to revisit education system of Malawi. is it really delivering the required knowledge? Does it really make students think on themselves and come up with very innovative ideas? The biggest problems 90% of lecturing time is spent in discussing politics instead of priducing right materials for the country. Its vry pathetic all these years nothing made Malawi or invented by our intellectuals. This is lesson learnt. Lets focus on reall ussues than much of time on politucs. Politics has robbed off our intelkectual thinking. Nobody will develop our country too much pull down syndrome. Very shameful indeed, you engineers bang your heads together and come up with something for Malawi instead of spending much of admiring what ither countrys Engineers have done. We have produced competent Electrical,Civil engineers why come up woth sonething we should admire. Who to blame on this? We are all failed nation who prefer admiring other countrys advances. Polytechnic is school of excellency think about your contributions. Until when should we point fingers, lets work up and rise beyond politics. Imagine our Parliment is full of people with different education background are completely failing to propel Malawi into better direction. Our we really benefiting with our education system and its products.

  18. Lived in both countries and travel most parts of both nations,Tanzania is far ahead in so many grounds.and interesting thing Tanzania has done again few days ago is to make a deal with China about selling cassava to China which will bring them billions of shillings while leaders in Malawi are busy thinking of how they can keep on stealing tax payers money instead of creating jobs for the citizens.

    • remember, hustling tax payers money is a game of all presidents in the world. just to remind you as well that in malawi we will be also exporting industrial hemp soon which will bring billions of MK. “it will be cassava versas hemp”. we have hidden pontetials!!!

  19. Akuti ndegezo akaziyesa kuwuluka ngati sizingapange ngozi. Kkkkkkkkk! Zikakapanga ngozi akakonzaso mwanjira ina. Kodi okayesayo ndiye kuti wasayina kale death warrant?

  22. i won’t coment much about the chopper.But Mlawi24 if you do not have the photo for a certain news please dont confuse us with any other photo.

  23. What does Malawi got, compare to Tanzania? Many things are far behind. If I’m not mistaken, its the poorest in SADC region.
    It can be great, but not with those @ the helm

  24. The chopper in the picture is not the one that is made in Tanzania. The one in Tanzania is at a chassis stage with a Vw flat engine mounted they are in the process of fixing the rotars and many other things thus they are planning to have it the air after 2years from now. The only interesting thing is that in Tanzania they have engineers in Technical Colleges while in Malawi we have form four instructors in majority and very few graduates. Much as hospitals have teaching hospitals where health workers perfect their trade technical schools should also be having commercial garages for skills improvement and generation of financial resources m

  25. IFE AMALAWI TINATSOGOLA KALE IJA INAPANGIDWA KU DOWA IJA?? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ KOMASO NDIFE OTSOGOLA KALE MUNTHU OYAMBA KU ULUTSA NDEGE KUNO KU MMWELA KWA AFRICA NDI MMALAWI WA KUMANGOCHI.

  29. You are but fools. Malawi is not competing with Tanzania. Malawi is not at War with Tanzania. So what are you braging? You want our Army, our Police, our leaders or even Malawi citizenary to feel inferior to Tanzania? You want us to be defeated cyclogically? Lake Malawi for Malawi.
