On December 31, 2021, FlightSafety International acquired FRASCA Flight Simulation. FRASCA has become one of the most recognizable names in flight simulation for more than 60 years, delivering training devices to hundreds of flight schools, airlines and military organizations worldwide.
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 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.
This partnership is a great fit as both companies were started by passionate aviators and together, we have more than 130 years of history advancing aviation safety. This relationship goes back six decades to a friendship between our founder Rudy Frasca and FlightSafety founder Al Ueltschi.
Our company name will remain the same and you will still be working with the same great team of Frasca employees. John Frasca will continue as president and all management and employees will remain at our facility in Urbana, IL.
Through our partnership, both companies will have an increase in the ability to prepare aviators through scalable and integrated product lines, increased innovation and expanded expertise in the training and simulation market.
