A Brief History

Formed in 2006, AIRDAT was created specifically to assist with the improvement of the Airside Driving Scheme at Gatwick Airport in the UK. Since those early beginnings, the team and its products and services have grown and updated, but that simple ethos of making life easier and the airport environment better still runs deep.

Every member of the AIRDAT Team has aviation experience. Pilots, ground engineers, senior airport operations staff and more, make up the specialised group that helps to deliver world-leading aviation training, system & consultancy services.

We are problem solvers. We like to take the laborious and complex and make it quick and simple. What can we do for you?
