Why should I use Gateway for my training?
Gateway companies operate with policies and procedures utilizing FAA Practical Test Standards for pilot and crew completion of aircraft Initial, Recurrent or Transition training courses.
Training courseware is periodically reviewed by our staff professional educators to ensure quality and accuracy. Instructional methods and record keeping are also evaluated. Client safety, security, and comfort in the simulator or aircraft training environment are reviewed by periodic standardization meetings.
Gateway’s training programs ensure that pilots and/or crew members are adequately trained for their aircraft make and model, duty position (as applicable) and type of flight operations to be conducted. FAA Practical Test Standards provide training component guidance.
Upon course completion, pilots will be able to fly in a manner that confirms they are the master of the aircraft. The successful outcome of any maneuver or procedure will never be in question. In addition, pilots and / or crews will be prepared and competent to operate in any controlled airspace. Pilots and crews completing Gateway Training will also be able to demonstrate their knowledge of Regulations, Policies, and Procedures applicable to 14CFR Part 91.
