Embraer and FlightSafety opening new Praetor simulator


Embraer and FlightSafety International are opening a new FAA-qualified Praetor full-flight simulator in Orlando, Florida. 

Initial training for customers is available this month with a recurrent training scheduled to start in October. Both companies also announced the launch of a fourth Praetor simulator, which will be based in Europe. The new Praetor simulator is planned to start operating by the end of next year.  

Carlos Naufel, president & CEO, Embraer Services & Support, said: “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.

Nate Speiser, executive vice president of FlightSafety Sales and Marketing, added: “FlightSafety is committed to addressing the increasing demand for Embraer Praetor training. 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.”
