Embraer and CAE have signed an agreement to form a global training joint venture, which will provide pilot and ground crew training to customers of the Phenom 100 Very Light Jet and Phenom 300 Light Jet aircraft.
The initial training program will be offered at CAE SimuFlite, Dallas, Texas, beginning with the Phenom 100 entry into service in 2008. Plans for the joint venture include expansion to Western Europe and Eastern U.S. This is CAE’s first training program for the Very Light Jet and Light Jet markets.
CAE and Embraer will work together to develop all required courseware and provide a team of instructors to deliver all ground school and simulator instruction. As part of the training program, CAE will design and manufacture full-flight simulators and combine CAE Simfinity technology and devices into the comprehensive Phenom training program.
Pilots will have the course content tailored to their specific needs identified in the beginning of the process through tests, interviews and curriculum evaluation. Upon request, a mentor pilot program will be available and offered separately.
