Embraer and CAE will add both pilot training and cabin crew training for Embraer’s E-Jet E2 commercial aircraft, an expansion of a 16-year joint venture between the two companies. Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) plans to deploy an E-Jet E2 full-flight simulator at the Flight Training Centre in Singapore, with training expected to start in December.
There is a growing fleet of E2 jets in the Asia Pacific region—one reason that Singapore was selected as the first location for the global E-Jet E2 training network.
Johann Bordais, President and CEO, Embraer Services & Support, remarked, “We are more than ever committed to providing high-quality training programs available in locations close to our E-Jets E2s’ operators.”
“Launching the new program in Singapore brings E2 training closer to our APAC customers and ensures their pilots are ready to take flight as E2 jets join their fleets,” commented Michel Azar-Hmouda, Vice President, Commercial Aviation Training, CAE.
The E-Jet E2 training program will include CAE 7000XR Series full-flight simulators, including the CAE Tropos 6000XR visual system, in addition to CAE XR Series’ flight training devices.
