Embraer and CAE announced at the 2023 Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS), which took place in Singapore on 29-30 August, that they are expanding their longstanding joint venture to include pilot and cabin crew training for the Embraer E-Jet E2 family of commercial aircraft.
Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) will launch a new pilot training program and deploy a state-of-the-art E-Jet E2 full-flight simulator (FFS) at the Singapore-CAE Flight Training Centre where training is scheduled to begin in December 2023. E2 pilot and cabin crew training programs will be gradually expanded to strategic locations within CAE’s global network to support aircraft deliveries.
“We are delighted to build on our offering and introduce the E2 pilot training program to support the growing number of APAC operators embracing the latest generation of platforms,” said Johann Bordais, President and CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
“We are more than ever committed to providing high-quality training programs available in locations close to our E-Jets E2s’ operators,” he stressed.
“Adding the E-Jets E2 platform to our existing joint venture is a natural next step in the partnership CAE and Embraer have built over the last 16 years,” said Michel Azar-Hmouda, Vice President, Commercial Aviation Training, CAE.
“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,” he added.
Singapore has been chosen as the first location due to the growing E-Jets E2 fleet in the Asia Pacific region. The establishment of the full flight simulator and pilot training program enhances Embraer’s value proposition in the APAC region.
ECTS’ training solutions are a core offering of the Embraer Services & Support platform. The platform assembles the entire portfolio of products and solutions to deliver the best services and support experience, and leverages the after-sales business to intensify its presence and enhance support on a day-to-day basis, generating more value to customers. The E2 training program will feature CAE 7000XR Series full-flight simulators (FFSs), including the innovative CAE Tropos™ 6000XR visual system, as well as CAE XR Series’ flight training devices (FTDs).
