FlightSafety International and TRU Simulation + Training have formed a new company called FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training to provide instruction services on Textron Aviation’s broad product line of business and general aviation aircraft.

According to FlightSafety Co-CEO and President-Commercial David Davenport, the joint venture will “increase efficiency, promote innovation and ensure the extension of our high-quality training programs into new and upcoming Textron Aviation aircraft.”

Meanwhile, Gunnar Kleveland, president of TRU Simulation + Training, said, “By leveraging our teams’ strengths and combination of world-class training capabilities, I am confident this will provide an enhanced training experience for our customers.”

Brian Moore has been named CEO of the new entity. He joined FlightSafety more than 20 years ago and since has held positions of increasing responsibility, including manager of the FlightSafety Wichita East Learning Center and most recently as executive director of operations.

The joint venture will offer training on 48 Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker aircraft models at 16 locations, using 89 simulators.
