Gama Aviation announced Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Approved Training Organisation (ATO) approval to conduct the landing training required for the issue of aircraft type ratings. This enables Gama to carry out training programmes under the new interpretation of the EASA Part-FCL training requirements for base training.

The ATO initially covers seven types of aircraft including Challenger, Global Express and Gulfstream G550, with more types to be added in the near future. Gama Aviation anticipates that within a few months it will be able to provide training on up to 30 aircraft types.

The ATO was launched to meet the needs of roster of more than 450 pilots and 20 students have already completed their type ratings using the facility. However, Gama will also be extending the service to other operators.

Hamish Ross, head of our training said: “As a business we place a huge emphasis on training, across all aspects of our operations. We demand the highest standards and that is why we have established our own ATO, both for our own needs and those of the rest of the industry.”

Gama Aviation has operations in 45 different locations in 17 countries across five continents, making the company one of the world’s leading aviation services companies.
