CAE is preparing to open a fourth training center for Embraer’s Phenom light jets later this year. According to Carlos Mallaco, vice president for Customer Support & Services with Embraer Executive Jets, the additional training capacity will likely be added in the U.S. through the long-established Embraer CAE Training Services (ECTS) joint venture. Phenom pilots already have three ECTS facilities at their disposal in Dallas, Texas; Burgess Hill in the UK; and São Paulo in Brazil. ECTS is developing a new simulator for the Phenom 100/300, as well as updated pilot manuals and optional iPad-based training.

For the larger Legacy and Lineage models, Embraer partnered with FlightSafety International (FSI), which has four Embraer training bases located in St. Louis, Missouri; Houston, Texas; Paris Le Bourget Airport in France; and São Paulo in Brazil. Last February, FSI received EASA approval for its new Legacy 500 maintenance training program and its flight simulator for the type.
