 “FlightSafety International and SimCom are in discussions regarding the possible transition of some of FlightSafety’s training programs to SimCom,” an FSI spokesman told AIN at press time. “An announcement will be made once the agreement is finalized.” According to reports, SimCom is seeking to buy some piston and turboprop training programs, as well as the accompanying simulators. Said to be included in the negotiations are FSI’s programs for the Beechcraft King Air 90, Cessna pistons and turboprop twins (P210 to Cessna 400 series), Piper Cheyenne and Navajo, Saab 2000 and Turbo Commander, among others. The deal could close by the end of August.
