FlightSafety International has promoted Matthew De Foe to manager of its Paris Le Bourget Learning Center. He assumes this responsibility from Yannick Kerriou who has left the company.

“We look forward to Matt's contributions as manager of the Paris Le Bourget Learning Center,” says SVP, operations Dann Runik. “His experience in training operations and in business development and sales makes him the ideal choice for this important role. We thank Yannick for his contributions to FlightSafety and wish him the best in his future endeavours.”

De Foe joined FlightSafety at the Tucson Learning Center in 2008 as an instructor. He provided training for the Bombardier Challenger 604, Learjet 31 and Learjet 45. Since then, he has become a valuable member of the management team and has served in a number of positions with increasing responsibility. He has been programme manager, director of training, director of UAS business development and assistant manager of the Tucson and West Palm Beach Learning Centers.

Prior to joining FlightSafety, De Foe flew a variety of business aircraft for several aircraft owners, and was a captain and director of safety at Fair Wind Air Charter. He also flew the Embraer ERJ145 aircraft as a first officer for Continental Express.

He graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a BSc in Professional Aeronautics and a minor in Aviation Business Administration. He will soon complete an MBA and Business Intelligence and Data Analytics certificate programme. Matt holds an FAA Airline Transport Pilot Certificate, is a qualified EASA flight instructor and examiner, and is type rated on a variety of Bombardier, Gulfstream and Hawker aircraft.
