Embraer and CAE’s Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) joint venture has announced it will double pilot training thanks to two new Phenom 300 full-flight simulators (FFS).

The first FFS will go into operation at CAE London Burgess Hill in the UK in the first quarter of 2024, while the second will be in service in Q3 2024 at CAE Las Vegas in the USA.

Carlos Naufel, president and CEO, Embraer Services and Support, commented, “After opening a new Phenom series full-flight simulator in April, we are announcing two new ones in the USA and Europe. We are working with CAE to be where our customers need us to be, providing them with our latest technological updates and best-in-class support. Embraer and CAE are long-term partners to provide the best services to the market.”

Alexandre Prevost, CAE’s Division President, Business Aviation and Helicopter Training, added, “The two new simulators will double our Phenom 300 training capacity in Las Vegas and London and allow ECTS to train more pilots at a critical time. Over the next 10 years, CAE forecasts a need for 32,000 business aviation pilots, and we are working with our partners at Embraer to ensure Phenom 300 customers have the highly qualified pilots they need to keep them flying.”

ECTS currently operates seven Phenom-series simulators in the USA, UK and Brazil.
