About Us

Rate One Aviation is an ATO (Approved Training Organisation) authorised by the UK CAA to conduct instrument flight training. We were the first ATO to gain approval for CBIR, which comprise most of our activity. Unlike most ATOs, we focus exclusively on private pilots looking to gain the coveted EASA Instrument Rating qualification. We operate seven days a week and are flexible to fit with our customer’s availability.

Founded in 2014, the company is based at Gloucester, UK (EGBJ), one of the best suited airfields for instrument training. Our facilities include a recently refitted classroom, suitably equipped IFR training aircraft and an endless supply of free tea and coffee. Our regular staff instructors have extensive IFR training experience.

We are approved to conduct training on single (SEP) and multi-engine (MEP) propeller aircraft and on Single Engine Turbine (SET) aircraft.
