One of the ideas that revolutionized pilot training.

FlightSafety took wing in 1951 using Link trainers.
In the 1970s, the school began using backlighted displays animated with sequential lights and moving parts, adding a dimension of realism to the classroom.
Today’s FlightSafety International’s Atlanta Learning Center houses 17 simulators and 64 instructors.
And, of course, the training for the Learjet 31, 35, 45 and 60 series is conducted there.
