Embraer and FlightSafety International have opened a Praetor full-flight simulator in Orlando, Florida. The simulator is already qualified by the FAA and initial training for customers is available this month, with the recurrent training scheduled to start in October. The two companies have also launched a fourth Praetor simulator which will be based in Europe, at a location to be confirmed at a later date, to start operating by the end of 2024.
“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 US and Europe, and will provide us with the opportunity to share our latest technological updates and best-in-class support,” says Embraer Services & Support president and CEO Carlos Naufel.
“FlightSafety is committed to addressing the increasing demand for Embraer Praetor training,” adds EVP of sales and marketing Nate Speiser. “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.”
