Engineers from Embraer Executive Jets flight operations support team will soon be offering a 2013 version of their two-day flight operations engineering course (FOEC). This is designed to teach pilots of all the company’s business jets the engineering fundamentals behind aircraft performance numbers such as V1, V2, Vr, Vref and so on, used in daily flight operations.

The manufacturer believes safety margins will increase if pilots better understand the aerodynamics and performance parameters of the numbers they’re generating. In addition to correctly using aircraft performance manuals, charts and software, the FOEC also looks at best use of minimum equipment lists to improve dispatch reliability as well as providing a through review of aircraft incidents and accidents related to performance planning.
