Embraer, CAE Launch Phenom 100 Training
Embraer CAE Training Services, a joint venture of Brazilian OEM Embraer and Canadian simulator training services provider CAE, launched its first pilot and technical training programs for the Phenom 100 entry-level jet, to be based at the CAE training facility in Dallas. While the announcement at NBAA’08 marked the official launch, technical training actually began in August and pilot training in September. The effort is supported by a Phenom 100 full-flight simulator. A second full-flight simulator for both the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 is scheduled to open at CAE’s Burgess Hill training center in the UK in next year’s first quarter.
