Cat3C restructures, names Nigel Orme as the new Managing Director and Accountable Manager

Cat3C Limited (www.cat3c.com) based at Gloucester Airport announced today a management restructure naming Nigel Orme as the new Managing Director and Accountable Manager.


Cat3C provides TKI (theoretical knowledge instruction) to student pilots working to obtain their ATPL (airline transport pilots license) along with UK CAA and Austro-Control exams.

Captain Tony ‘Taff’ Pike will move into the Operations Director role along with his position of Safety and Compliance Manager. Captain Bill Chivers continues as Head of Training and CTKI (Chief theoretical knowledge instructor).


Cat3C also announces they have completed their move at Gloucester Airport and are now based at the Aeros building following a renovation and upgrade to the three large classrooms which will include significant digital and technological upgrades to create one of the most modern pilot training facilities in the UK.


Brand guidelines have now been updated to include a new logo and overall rebrand of the Cat3C brand as part of their move and restructure.


Nigel Orme brings a depth of experience as former commercial pilot and instructor, Head of Sales for CAE and CEO for VA Airline Training. More recently Nigel founded the StratStep Group that focuses on both the aviation, training and technology sectors.


After being a part of the Cat3C executive management team for the last two years I am thrilled to be a part of moving forward our outstanding TKI team through the challenging times ahead. Our restructure, change of locations and rebrand along with last years partnership with Aeros Group will continue to allow us to offer world class TKI training while leading our industry in growth and development.



Further announcements will be made shortly regarding the TKI management service that Cat3C offers and new satellite ATO partnerships.
