LA GUARDIA AIRPORT, New York (October 21, 2009) – FlightSafety International announces that it has expanded its training services agreement with Gulfstream Aerospace to include the new Gulfstream G650 and Gulfstream G250 aircraft.
“We are honored that Gulfstream has selected FlightSafety as its training partner for the Gulfstream G650 and G250 aircraft,” said Bruce Whitman, President & CEO. “We share a commitment to enhance aviation safety and to provide our mutual Customers with the highest quality products, services, and support.”
FlightSafety and Gulfstream are working closely together to develop comprehensive training programs, flight simulators and other advanced training devices. The start of training will coincide with the entry into service of the aircraft.
