FlightSafety restructures leadership team
Brothers in arms David Davenport and Ray Johns will continue to lead FlightSafety but the division of labour is refined with the promotion of Davenport.
FlightSafety International president and CEO David Davenport.

FlightSafety International has appointed David Davenport as president and CEO. He most recently served as co-CEO and president, commercial. Ray Johns, who previously served as co-CEO, will continue as president, government and manufacturing, overseeing the services and products FlightSafety offers to government and military agencies, as well as the design and manufacture of flight simulation products and visual systems.

“I am honoured to serve as CEO of this outstanding company and to work alongside so many talented and dedicated teammates,” says Davenport. “After leading FlightSafety together since last October, Ray and I determined that this new structure is the best and most effective way to achieve FlightSafety’s goals while continuing to build for the future. Ray is an outstanding leader who has contributed greatly to FlightSafety‘s success since joining us in 2014. His focus on innovation and dedication to continuous product, service and process improvement is most appreciated and valued. I look forward to working with him and the other members of our senior management team as we strive to further enhance FlightSafety’s reputation for providing outstanding customer service and the highest quality training programmes and products.”

Davenport joined FlightSafety in 1996 and has held many positions of increasing responsibility at various company locations since then. He is president of the Wings Club Foundation and a member of the National Business Aviation Association advisory council.
