Welcome to GATE

Returning for the third time, GATE - Gulf Aviation Training Event - will focus on pilot training and human factors vs automation, as well as flight tracking systems.

Industry leaders will discuss the future of aviation training in the region in a two-day conference held in a dedicated pavilion within the Dubai Airshow.

GATE is under the Patronage of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman of Dubai Airports, Chairman and CEO of Emirates.


According to Boeing’s Current Market Outlook (CMO) 2014 – 2033, the Middle East will need 55,000 new pilots and 62,000 new skilled maintenance personnel to staff the region’s airlines between now and 2033.

GATE brings industry players together to discuss the challenges of this growing demand, explore solutions and shape Middle East aviation training.
