Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) has deployed a new full-flight simulator (FFS) for the Phenom 300E to meet the growing demand for business jet training in the United States.
The new FFS will be operated by ECTS, a joint venture between Embraer and CAE, at the new CAE Las Vegas Training Center near Henderson International Airport. In addition to the FFS in Nevada, there are six Phenom-series simulators operating in Dallas, Texas (U.S.), London Burgess Hill (UK) and Guarulhos (Brazil).
“Offering additional capacity for pilot training is part of our strategy to provide the best services to the market. This new Phenom series simulator is also a milestone in our long-term relationship, and we are pleased to be part of the new CAE Las Vegas Training Center,” said Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
The best-selling light jet in the world for 11 years in a row, the Phenom 300 series leads the way in terms of technology, performance and comfort. The light jet, which has over 700 units in operation, is capable of reaching Mach 0.80 and offers unmatched avionics—including Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System (ROAAS), Emergency Descent Mode, coupled go-around, and more—allowing customers to reach their destinations quicker and with superior comfort.
“We are very happy to see our partnership with Embraer grow with the addition of a new Phenom series simulator to our training network, and the first in Las Vegas, a strategic location for both our customers and business. With Phenom FFS in four locations, we are bringing our innovative methodologies and advanced simulation technology closer to where our customers operate their aircraft. With partners like Embraer, we are expanding our network and increasing capacity to meet the growing demand for business jet pilots,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Aviation.
