The Company

Global Aviation Training Services 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. Global ATS 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 Global ATS a world-leading centre for aviation training excellence.

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.
