Our Story

Founded in 1958 by aviation pioneer Rudy Frasca, Frasca, a FlightSafety International company, was born from a passion for flying and a goal to make aviation safer. Today, 60 years later, under the leadership of John Frasca, our mission to improve aviation safety remains the same.

For 60 years Frasca’s mission has been to provide the best flight simulators available to improve aviation safety. This applies to every simulator we build. Our simulators are designed for training pilots to be ready for real world situations. This is where simulation and reality meet. This is where Frasca excels.
