Embraer has selected the CAE Burgess Hill, UK training center as the European training location for the Phenom 100 VLJ and Phenom 300 light jet. CAE will provide instruction in its Simfinity training devices, which use the same simulation software as the CAE full flight simulators. Training will begin in 2009 to coincide with the first projected Phenom 100 delivery in Europe.
The Brazilian manufacturer also announced last month that it is extending the cabin of the 300 an additional 14 inches, creating 15 cu ft more cabin volume. The change creates more leg room and more space for reclining, the company said. Also a result of the extension is the addition of a larger galley and two-seat divan as interior options.
