Embraer and CAE announced that Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) will offer a new full-flight simulator (FFS) for the Phenom 300E during the second half of 2022 to meet the growing demand for business jet training in the U.S. The new FFS will be operated by ECTS, a joint venture between Embraer and CAE. The FFS’s location will be defined by ECTS in the coming months.
“Our purpose with the new FFS, besides offering our customers additional capacity for training in the U.S., is to bring the latest technological updates of the aircraft and simulation technology, while providing the highest level of service to the market as the number of Phenom 300E deliveries continues to grow,” said Johann Bordais, president and CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
The best-selling light jet in the world for nine years in a row, the Phenom 300E leads the way in terms of technology, performance and comfort. The light jet, which has 600 units in operation, is capable of reaching Mach 0.80 and offers unmatched avionics—including Runway Overrun and Awareness Alerting System (ROAAS), Emergency Descent Mode, coupled go-around, and more—allowing customers to reach their destinations quicker and with superior comfort.
“We are happy to help Embraer enhance pilot training,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group president, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “Through this important initiative we will help meet the growing demand for business jet pilots by combining innovative methodologies, knowledgeable instructors, and advanced simulation technology.”
Currently, there are six simulators for the Phenom family of business jets in three different training locations: Dallas, London Burgess Hill and Guarulhos in Brazil.
