FlightSafety International and Embraer announced that it is launching a new Praetor full-flight simulator in Orlando, Florida. Both companies also announced the launch of a fourth simulator based in Europe.
The simulator is a fully certified simulator by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The training for the pilots has never been easier for those who are located in Florida.
Both Embraer and Flight Safety International also announced the launch of the fourth Praetor simulator, which will be located in Europe.
The new simulator in Europe is slated to be operational by the end of 2024. In October, customers will be open to book recurrent training in these simulators.
Carlos Naufel, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support said: “Offering additional training capacity is important for supporting our customers.”
“These two new full-flight simulators bring us even closer to Praetor family pilots and operators in the United States and Europe and will provide us with the opportunity to share our latest technological updates and best-in-class support.”
Nate Speiser, Executive Vice President of FlightSafety Sales and Marketing said: “FlightSafety is committed to addressing the increasing demand for Embraer Praetor training.”
“As Embraer’s training partner, we are proud to announce consecutive simulator deployments in two regions to support the worldwide training demand for this quickly growing fleet.”
With medium-sized long-haul jets on the rise in both Europe and North America, it makes perfect economic sense for Embraer and Flight Safety to join forces in introducing such simulators.
