The Gulf Aviation Training Event (GATE), taking place 13 November this year in Dubai, has announced the moderator for the event will be David Studden, senior manager, business development at the Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS).

His experience includes learning and development, strategic planning, business development and marketing.

Studden commented “I am proud to moderate GATE 2017 and am looking forward to some interesting and informative discussions.” He continued, “Throughout my career I have believed that learning is a life-long experience and GATE will be an ideal place to address challenges and opportunities facing the aerospace industry in the Middle East, with key industry leaders involved in both the panels and the audience.”

Panels will include discussions on regional training developments, technology in training and aviation schools, instructors and certification standards; while presentations will include an in depth look at evidence based training principles, plus aim to answer the question ‘How do you better train a pilot?
