Embraer and CAE Launch a New Phenom 300E Full-Flight Simulator


Embraer and CAE announced that Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) has deployed a new full-flight simulator (FFS) for the Phenom 300E to meet the growing demand for business jet training in the United States. The new FFS will be operated by ECTS, a joint venture between Embraer and CAE, at the new CAE Las Vegas Training Center near Henderson International Airport. In addition to the FFS in Nevada, there are six Phenom-series simulators operating in Dallas, Texas (U.S.), London Burgess Hill (UK) and Guarulhos (Brazil).

“Offering additional capacity for pilot training is part of our strategy to provide the best services to the market. This new Phenom series simulator is also a milestone in our long-term relationship, and we are pleased to be part of the new CAE Las Vegas Training Center,” said Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support.

The best-selling light jet in the world for 11 years in a row, the Phenom 300 series leads the way in terms of technology, performance and comfort. The light jet, which has over 700 units in operation, is capable of reaching Mach 0.80 and offers unmatched avionics—including Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System (ROAAS), Emergency Descent Mode, coupled go-around, and more—allowing customers to reach their destinations quicker and with superior comfort.

“We are very happy to see our partnership with Embraer grow with the addition of a new Phenom series simulator to our training network, and the first in Las Vegas, a strategic location for both our customers and business. With Phenom FFS in four locations, we are bringing our innovative methodologies and advanced simulation technology closer to where our customers operate their aircraft. With partners like Embraer, we are expanding our network and increasing capacity to meet the growing demand for business jet pilots,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.

The Phenom 300E is the fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot jet, with a high-speed cruise of 464 knots and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves. With the best climb and field performance in its class, the Phenom 300E costs less to operate and maintain than its peers. The aircraft is capable of flying at 45,000 feet (13,716 meters), powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E1 engines with 3,478 pounds of thrust each. The Phenom 300E offers a spacious cabin with the Embraer DNA Design and its baggage compartment is among the largest in its category. The largest windows in the class deliver abundant natural lighting in the cabin as well as in the private lavatory. The comfort of the seats, with reclining and full movement capability, is enhanced by the best pressurization among light jets (6,600 ft. maximum cabin altitude). The Phenom 300E features distinct temperature zones for pilots and passengers, a wardrobe and refreshment centre, voice and data communications options, and an entertainment system.

The pilot-friendly cockpit enables a single-pilot operation and offers the advanced Prodigy Touch Flight Deck, based on the acclaimed Garmin 3000 avionics suite. The aircraft features carried from the class above include single-point refuelling, an externally serviced lavatory and an airstair.
