FlightSafety acquires Frasca
The consolidation of two established companies promises greater integrity of flight training. FlightSafety's acquisition of Frasca will see the development of complementary devices and integration of product lines.

FlightSafety International has acquired Illinois-based aviation simulator manufacturing company Frasca International.

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. FlightSafety and Frasca are premier brands in the aviation space and share a long history of collaboration, dating back decades to the friendship of the founders of both companies, Al Ueltschi and Rudy Frasca. Both companies were started by passionate aviators and each have a more than 60 year history of advancing aviation safety.

This acquisition will better allow each company to increase its ability to prepare aviators through scalable and integrated product lines, increased innovation and expanded expertise in the training and simulation market. From universities and trade schools to professional flight departments, commercial airlines, cargo operators and government and military flight operations, FlightSafety and Frasca will offer a suite of complementary training devices that will help develop the most prepared aviators in the world.

Frasca's company name will remain the same. John Frasca will continue as president of Frasca and all management and employees will remain at its facility in Urbana, Illinois.

Through the partnership, both companies will have a greater ability to prepare aviators through scalable and integrated product lines, increased innovation and expanded expertise in the training and simulation market.
