FlightSafety International has promoted Michael Burger to manager of the company's Learning Center in Teterboro, New Jersey. He assumes this responsibility from Danny Robayo who was recently promoted to vice president.

“Congratulations to Michael on his well-deserved promotion,” says senior vice president, operations Dann Runik. “He is an outstanding leader with an in-depth understanding of customer training needs and aviation regulatory requirements around the world.”

Burger joined FlightSafety in 2004 as an instructor at the Farnborough Learning Center in the UK. He then served as an examiner for Hawker HS125 series aircraft, coordinator of the centre's quality management system, and director of training. He joined the Teterboro Learning Center team in 2015 as assistant manager, and at the same time was named EASA Head of training for FlightSafety. He will continue in that role.

Previously Burger held a number of positions with Swiss International Airlines and Crossair. During his nine years with the airline he was an instructor, first officer and pilot in command, as well as deputy VP head of training and chief ground instructor at Swiss Aviation Training. He also worked as a flight instructor at Mazzei Flying Service School of Aeronautics in California.

Burger received a Master of Business Administration from Basel Business College and studied aviation management at the European Aeronautical University. He holds an EASA ATP license and is an EASA certified type rating instructor and examiner. He also earned an FAA Airline Transport Pilot certificate and is a Certified Flight Instructor. He has over 4,600 flight hours and is type rated in the Saab 2000, Hawker 800XP and the Falcon 2000 EX EASy II aircraft.

The Teterboro Learning Center offers a pilot and maintenance technician training programme for six Dassault Falcon aircraft as well as the King Air 350 using Level D qualified simulators. The King Air 350 programme also features MissionFit, FlightSafety's new advanced interactive training system that offers an innovative seamless glass display that shows a graphical representation of the aircraft's flight deck, sensitive to movement and touch. It is ideal for systems integration, normal, abnormal and emergency procedures, general cockpit familiarisation, mission rehearsal, crew coordination and other training programmes. The Teterboro Center also features a state-of-the-art facility for flight crew emergency training.
