(14 Oct 2021) A full-flight simulator (FFS) service for the Phenom 300E will open in the U.S. in H2 2022.
The location of the new FFS has not yet been confirmed, but it will be operated by Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) – a joint venture between Embraer and CAE.
“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 & CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
The best-selling light jet in the world for nine years in a row, the Phenom 300E is capable of reaching Mach 0.80 and features a wide range of avionics including Runway Overrun and Awareness Alerting System (ROAAS), Emergency Descent Mode, coupled go-around, and more.
“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 (U.S,), London Burgess Hill (UK) and Guarulhos (Brazil).
