Aviation Training Services
Our reputation for delivering world class courses to the UK market are second to none and our overall validation rate is the highest in the industry meaning that self funded and unit sponsored controllers can be confident in our ability to provide them with the best possible foundation for a career in Air Traffic Control.
Global ATS provide ICAO ATC training to international students sponsored by overseas aviation organisations as well as regular open courses for self sponsoring students throughout the year.
Our well qualified instructors have many years teaching experience in multi-cultural environments. The college has recently been inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) and passed with excellent results.
Global ATS has brought together a team of experienced Airport and ATM aviation Safety Management specialists who have been using and teaching ATM over many years. The team has collectively embraced the developments and lessons learned as Air Traffic Management systems have been implemented throughout the aviation industry.
An airport operator should ensure that all operational personnel are trained and competent to operate in those safety-critical areas. There are many activities that are performed on the airside area of an airport and an understanding of these is essential for a safe and efficient conduct of aircraft and vehicle movements.
Safety is the most important factor in any aviation operational discipline and it is essential that everyone involved has a clear understanding of how safety can be managed within their area of responsibility.
About Global ATS
Global Aviation Training Services (GATS) is a United Kingdom based company providing a wide range of aviation training services and custom-built solutions in the field of Air Traffic Management. The company operates in a fast-moving and exciting industry sector providing its services to customers from over 35 countries, many of which are fast-growing emerging markets.
Global ATS offers many services which can be provided either in-country or at its Gloucestershire Airport facility, a UK CAA and ICAO ATC training college in western England.
Global ATS is a unique company. It is the only private sector (non-state owned) provider of air traffic training solutions – not only in the UK, but perhaps globally. GATS was built on the legacy and solid foundations of the highly respected Bailbrook Aviation College, which itself was a successor to the IAL Aviation College in Hayes, England established in the early 1960’s. This rich lineage has contributed in no small way in making GATS a world-leading centre for aviation training excellence.
Global ATS provides solutions to high-growth, opportunity-rich aviation markets. The growth of air traffic in emerging markets will drive demand for aviation training and services over the next 20 years, with a global shortfall of skilled industry manpower increasing this demand. The growth of air traffic in emerging markets such as the Middle East, the Gulf Cooperation Council states, Indian sub-continent, Africa, South East Asia, China, CIS countries in Central Asia and Latin America will drive demand for aviation training, education and services in the next 20 years.
A key asset is our CAA-approved ATC training centre at Gloucestershire Airport. Here we deliver our ATC training business, with consistently high quality and results.
An immersive ‘hands-on training environment’ gives students realistic work simulations, with a memorable experience of college life beyond the curriculum.
Aviation training is stringently regulated. Our clients expect us to ensure internal control processes; policies and procedures are in place for all staff. Our Quality Management System (QMS) contains all necessary controls to operate our business with full compliance.
We have established a network of Associates with over 150 years’ combined experience across all areas of Air Traffic Management. Our associates are available on an ad hoc basis to support a range of projects across specialist industry areas, including air navigation services, CNS engineering and maintenance training / solutions, aviation consultancy, 2D & 3D simulation development, safety and quality management system implementation and more.
Chris Waldron, our Simulator Support Manager achieved his AFISO validation this weekend at Cotswold Airport.
He has been working there during weekends since early 2015, and all at Global would like to congratulate him on obtaining his AFISO licence.
Due to rapid increase in training requirements, Global ATS is looking to add to its full time UK ATC Instructional Staff for 2016.
The ideal candidate will have ADI, APP and APS with OJTI. Some experience of classroom instruction would be useful, but not vital as training will be given.
Instructor is required to deliver Theory and Principles courses to foreign nationals on Radar and Instrument Landing System (ILS).
You will be proactive in all aspect of the course. Independent research will be required to develop the training course into a product for repeated delivery.
Requirements will change as training program matures.
We are pleased to report the recent successful delivery of OJTI and Examiners courses for students from BAS Serco Ltd, Bermuda.
The courses were delivered at our training centre at Gloucestershire Airport in July 2015.
Today our very own Adam Mullins (UK Chief Instructor) was the VIP speaker at the Air Traffic Control event at the world famous Cheltenham Science Festival. Adam presented his hour long session to a full house of just over 300 paying guests.
We are extremely excited to announce that we have now received full CAA approval to use the industry leading BEST 3D Aerodrome Simulator by Micro Nav for our CAA Approved Aerodrome courses. Our first UK Aerodrome course using Micro Nav’s BEST 3D simulators will commence on the week of 23rd March 2015.
