About GATI flying club
GATI was started about 70 years ago and flying is operated from commercial international airport in Bhuvaneswar. So, the cadets can avail RT services from the airport itself, which is a great boon to experience authentic RT service right from the beginning. GATI doesn’t have many courses as they have CPL program, Instrument rating and night rating only. However it is sufficient for a startup flying cadet. Hostel facility is also provided by GATI for students.
