Founded in 1951, FlightSafety is dedicated to the principle that aviation safety is best achieved by thorough training. Since the beginning, the company has developed its technological and human resources with the aim of increasing pilot proficiency across all aircraft types – fixed wing and rotorcraft – in the areas of commercial, corporate and military aviation. The result of that 60-year effort is measured by FlightSafety’s fleet of over 300 advanced simulators, a division of courseware developers, and its staff of 1,800 professional instructors who not only train pilots, but transmit their experience and knowledge to technicians, flight attendants, corporate schedulers/dispatchers, and other aviation professionals.
