Gama Aviation, the global aviation services company, has entered into an agreement with CATS Aviation Training to promote each other’s courses, promoting new and recurrent training requirements. Both organizations recognize that the demand for pilots in the industry is increasing, while the opportunity and resources needed to train and educate in many countries is on the decline.
Matt Harvey, general manager of CATS Aviation, said, “This agreement makes sense for us and our customer base of existing commercial pilots and those that are aspiring to move into commercial roles. We have previously looked into extending our services into the ground school areas that Gama Aviation occupies, but when you consider their expertise and track record in this area it made much more sense for both sides to co-promote their offers rather than compete.”
Graeme Pollard, head of training for Gama Aviation’s EASA Ground School, added, “This is a natural fit to add another partner to our training capability. CATS customers who attend and pass their APTL may well become future business aviation pilots and they will rely on courses such as our Part-FCL, CRM and Commercial training to reach their career aspirations.”
