Embraer-CAE Training Services Launches Phenom Training in Brazil
Sao Paolo, Brazil - Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS), a joint venture of Embraer and CAE, announces the launch of Phenom aircraft pilot and maintenance technician training in Brazil at CAE's training center near Guarulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo. This is the third ECTS training location; other locations include Dallas and Burgess Hill, U.K., and the fourth Phenom full-flight simulator (FFS). The Phenom FFS is the first advanced technology flight simulator for business aircraft in South America.
"This new facility provides our executive jet customers in Brazil with world-class aviation training," says Edson Carlos Mallaco, vice president of customer support and services at Embraer Executive Jets. "This latest addition to our Phenom platform training program reinforces Embraer's commitment to its growing fleet here in Latin America. It also confirms our continuous efforts to provide the best possible customer experience."
Courses will begin at the end of August. ANAC (Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil), the Brazilian agency responsible for the regulation and safety oversight of civil aviation, recently qualified the new Phenom FFS. ECTS will provide a complete training solution for operators of the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 executive jets, including ground school, Garmin Prodigy training station, CAE Simfinity-integrated procedures trainer (IPT) and the state-of-the-art CAE 5000 Series reconfigurable full-flight simulator.
The CAE Sao Paulo training center, which was recently expanded to 10 simulator bays, currently offers training on eight full-flight simulators and trains more than 6,000 pilots each year. The center also features 12 classrooms, 20 brief/debrief rooms, integrated procedures trainers and customer offices. The 24-hour facility has a crew lounge, WiFi internet access, shuttle service between CAE and local airports and hotels, a technical library and a cafeteria.
