Embraer and FlightSafety International have opened a new Praetor full-flight simulator in Orlando, Florida. The simulator is already qualified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Initial training for customers is available this month with the recurrent training scheduled to start in October.
Both companies also announced the launch of the fourth Praetor simulator, which will be based in Europe, at a location to be announced at a later date. The new Praetor simulator is planned 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 United States and Europe and will provide us with the opportunity to share our latest technological updates and best-in-class support,” said Carlos Naufel, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
