NEW YORK (June 3, 2019) – FlightSafety International announces that its new Embraer E-Jets E2 training program has been approved by the United States Federal Aviation Administration, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, and the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil.
“The development of the Embraer E-Jets E2 training program is another example of the commitment of FlightSafety and Embraer to provide high quality courses that meet the specific needs of operators around the world,” said Dann Runik, Senior Vice President, Operations.
“This is a very important milestone for the E-Jets E2. These great results were possible due to the joint efforts of Embraer and FlightSafety. The approval by ANAC, EASA and FAA will support our customers with their initial type rating course and provide more flexibility for their operation,” said Alexandre Juliano Bianchi, Embraer Regulations and Flight Standards Director.
The training will be offered at the FlightSafety Le Bourget Learning Center in Paris this summer using a FlightSafety-built Embraer E190-300 E2 full flight simulator and other advanced training technology.
