John Frasca has been named president and CEO of Frasca International following the announcement that his father, founder Rudy Frasca, has retired from day-to-day activities.
The younger Frasca had served as vice president since 2003, gradually taking over more of his father’s duties. He has worked for the family owned company since 1972, when he began working in the simulator production factory after school.
According to the company’s new CEO, Frasca’s management team and goals will remain unchanged. “We will continue to provide the highest quality flight simulators through innovative engineering, quality manufacturing, sound management and unmatched customer service,” he said. “We expect continued growth based on increased market share as well as expansion into new segments of the flight training industry.”
