    FlightSafety's Bruce Whitman Dies at 85

    FlightSafety International's chairman, president and CEO Bruce Whitman, whose career with the flight training company spanned 57 years, died this week at the age of 85. During Whitman's tenure, he made it his mission to reduce aviation accidents by creating programs that train pilots, not only for proficiency, but to increase their abilities to handle emergency situations. The company developed full motion simulators that create a realistic environment for pilots to practice situations that would be impossible to safely simulate in complex airplanes.
