Coronavirus (COVID-19)

At FlightSafety, safety is the foundation of everything we do.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a constantly changing landscape. We will continue to issue operational updates as they become available, but I wanted to take a moment to provide reassurance that we are taking all necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus and keep our clients and employees safe.

First, all FlightSafety simulators and facilities are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in accordance with the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

Second, all employees know that they do not need to worry about their paycheck if they require quarantine and/or medical attention due to a COVID-19 diagnosis. We provide everyone with supportive encouragement, so they can remove themselves from the environment without financial or moral concern.

Lastly, to keep those who train with us safe, we will work with you to reschedule your training in the event of government or company travel restrictions or if you believe you have been in contact with an infected person.

We will continue to keep you informed as we all progress through the changing circumstances surrounding the situation.  Please see our COVID-19 update below.

Thank you.

Brad Thress
President and CEO

 

COVID-19 Update – May 1, 2020

Thank you for your support and understanding over the past few months as together we have been dealing with the challenges of the COVID-19 virus. We certainly look forward to the return of flight activities and to providing the service and support you are accustomed to at our Learning Centers.

While concerns over COVID-19 continue, please know that the health and safety of our customers and teammates while at our facilities remains of paramount importance. We are taking all necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus. All FlightSafety simulators and facilities are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in accordance with the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

Early into the COVID-19 outbreak, and well before the pandemic was declared, we implemented numerous protective protocols at all FlightSafety facilities. As the situation developed, and more information became available, we updated and added to these important procedures.

While many are taking advantage of our LiveLearning and Online Ground School programs, the following protective measures are currently in place to help ensure the safety of those who are training at a Learning Center:

Facility Access

Cleaning and Disinfecting Protocols

General Safety Practices and Precautions

Here are just a few of the comments we have received from customers who have recently trained at one of our Learning Centers.

“The cleaning staff were fantastic and great to see so much hand sanitizer available. The simulator was spotless, and the communal areas were very clean too. Thank you so much”.

“Everything kept extremely clean during the covid-19 pandemic. I was extremely impressed with the dedication of the maintenance/cleaning staff”.

“I really appreciated the COVID19 precautions! Thank you for the aggressive precautionary steps to keeping everyone safe”.

 “Your facilities are so clean, and with the Covid-19 virus, I never felt uncomfortable in the building”.

While we hope we have seen the worst, know that we take every situation seriously. In the event an individual advises us that they are suspected of, or confirmed to have COVID-19, they are required to depart and remain away from the facility. All areas where they had access receive an additional detailed cleaning. Others who may have been exposed to the individual may continue to train provided they remain asymptomatic and comply with recommendations from the CDC and WHO, which are:

We appreciate your patience during this challenging time and look forward to seeing you soon. As always, please contact your Learning Center Manager if you have any questions or concerns.
