Embraer and CAE have officially inaugurated what it believes to be the Asia Pacific (APAC) region's first E-Jets E2 full flight simulator (FFS) in Singapore. E-Jets E2 training is the latest program offered by the recently expanded Embraer CAE Training Services (ECTS) joint venture. The E2 training program will feature CAE’s competency-based training assessment (CBTA) courseware, interactive classroom instruction with the CAE Simfinity virtual simulator (VSIM), and immersive practical training in a new CAE 7000XR Series FFS. The visual system utilizes CAE Tropos 6000XR. The FFS is located at the Singapore-CAE Flight Training Centre near Changi Airport and will support E2 operators in the region.

Pilots from Singapore Airlines’ subsidiary, Scoot, have already begun their training in preparation of the Embraer E190-E2 aircraft’s entry into service with the airline later this year. Scoot pilots will experience all aspects of flight in CAE's latest generation FFS and practice multiple scenarios to enhance their skills and preparedness ahead of the aircraft’s first revenue flights.

“Not only does it add to the suite of aftermarket services in Singapore, it is a valuable addition to the region’s aerospace and aviation ecosystem. We look forward to collaborating with industry partners to build capabilities that fuel the growth in APAC and enhance the skills of aerospace and aviation talent in the region, from Singapore,” said Elaine Teo, Senior Vice President, Global Enterprises Division, Singapore Economic Development Board.

The simulator was certified by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore in December 2023.

Complementing the E2 full flight simulator are classroom sessions that include interactive touch screen training that accelerates learning. CAE believes that VSIM, a familiarization and practice tool for pilot training that provides access to all the aircraft's systems, is a significant enhancement to typical commercial pilot training. The VSIM can be used to simulate all manner of system functions by an instructor as a classroom and briefing tool, as well as by pilots for familiarization and individualized training.

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 for customers.
