Full Flight Simulator Manufacturer acquires globally known Fixed base Simulator Brand
US headquartered simulator manufacturer Frasca International has been acquired by FlightSafety International, the globally known aviation training group and full flight simulator manufacturer.
The companies plan to offer a suite of complementary training devices for a wide array of markets “from universities and trade schools, to professional flight departments, commercial airlines, cargo operators and government and military flight operations.”.
“FlightSafety has traditional strength in high-quality training in large Level D simulators and FRASCA’s strength in training development and ab initio flight training makes this partnership beneficial for both entities,” Frasca said.
In April, Frasca announced that it had been nominated as one of the subcontractors for Flight Safety’s Navy training project.
The contract required Flight Safety Defense, a subsidiary of Flight Safety, to provide educational services and availability to 18 Level 6 and Level 7 flight training equipment designed and manufactured by Frasca.
Frasca says it will continue to operate out of its facility in Urbana, Illinois, and the company name will remain the same. John Frasca will stay on as president and all management and employees are expected to be retained.
