In a ceremony held in mid-December, the responsibility for air traffic management services in the Northern Province of Mazar-e-Sharif (MeS) was handed from the German Air Force to NSPA.

Two separate ceremonies actually marked this transition. The Technical Hand Over was held in the afternoon from the German Senior Air Traffic Controller (SATCO) Lieutenant-Colonel LUEHRS to iAP Worldwide Services and validated by NSPA, and, later the same day in a final ceremony, Colonel ZITZEWITZ, Commander of the Air Wing, presided over the Hand Over Take Over ceremony during the MeS Wing Transition from the Germany to NSPA to iAP involving iAPs on-site Manager Mr Douglas DOTSON and NSPA’s Head of Office Mr Gerry HOLDEN.
