Lead Flight Instructor, SAT (Former Employee) – Vero Beach, FL – 17 November 2017
Good training for structure required for safe operations in flight and in aviation in general. Pay is low but fair when weighed against the name recognition for Flight safety within the industry, The benefits offered are some of the best in the industry and counter the low hourly rate.

FlightSafety International is a very good place to work. People are nice and supportive. The pay scale is slightly below market value. If you do your job well, you are fairly secure in your position. Not a lot of rapid advancement.
Deskside Support Technician (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – 3 July 2017
The Team is extremely professional. They respect each other's opinions and work very well together. In a typical day, I am working very closely with the team to ensure their computers and other technology are performing optimally. I've learned a great deal about how pilots are certified. The most enjoyable part of the job is collaborating with subject matter experts on the proprietary aspects of the company.
Aviation Training Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – 14 March 2017
Work days are very busy, as policies are always changing. I have learned many things about aviation that I never knew before. Management was absolutely wonderful when I first started. the culture is very family-oriented. The most challenging part was understanding all the different policies for different aircrafts. I most enjoyed my co-workers. They made coming to work easy and fun.
Instructional Systems Specialist (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – 6 January 2017
The work was not hard and there was the opportunity to learn something new about aviation every day, not always something you needed to learn but interesting. There was always work to be done and it seemed like everyone was truly nice and fun to work with, always willing to help out. While not always particularly interesting work there is an element of necessity that helps the job feel like it makes a difference. I noticed that there wasn't always great project management and tasks could get bogged down and bloated by constantly adding project stakeholders or not exercising scope control.
Amazing people, flexible hours, lots of free food, easy work if you have the skills, always something going on
Lack of orientation process, lots of red tape, hit or miss communication between departments and centers, very old school management
Instructor (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – 18 November 2016
A good company to get your foot in the door of the training industry. Climbing through the ranks can be difficult if not impossible. Learn as much as you can and look for opportunities outside the company.
