Forbes singles out FlightSafety as top employer
When respondents to the Forbes survey were asked to recommend and evaluate other organisations in their industry, FlightSafety was more positively evaluated than 80 per cent of all companies on the list.

FlightSafety International has been named one of the best midsize employers by Forbes for the second consecutive year.

“We are pleased and honoured to be named by Forbes again this year,” say co-CEOs David Davenport and Ray Johns. “This is directly attributable to our focus on teammates and our culture of quality and customer service. We are committed to provide a positive work environment and family atmosphere that recognises and rewards achievements, offers opportunities for advancement and encourages open communication.”

Statista, an online statistics provider, conducted a survey on behalf of Forbes of more than 50,000 people who work for organisations in the United States with over 1,000 employees. Of those, 2,700 companies received enough positive evaluations to be considered for the list. FlightSafety is one of only 500 companies, and eight in the aerospace and defence industry category, named to the list of best midsize employers.

Survey participants were contacted anonymously and asked to share their opinions about their workplace and employer. They were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their employer to friends and family. FlightSafety received a higher score in this area this year compared to 2018. In addition, when respondents were asked to recommend and evaluate other organisations in their industry, FlightSafety was more positively evaluated than 80 per cent of all companies on the list.

FlightSafety provides more than 1.4 million hours of training each year to pilots, technicians and other aviation professionals from 167 countries and independent territories. It operates the world's largest fleet of advanced full-flight simulators at Learning Centers and training locations in the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa and the UK.
