Embraer and CAE have launched the Asia Pacific (APAC) region’s first E-Jets E2 full flight simulator (FFS) on the eve of the Singapore Airshow.  

The flight simulator’s launch was announced on February 19, 2024, as part of the existing Embraer CAE Training Services (ECTS) joint venture. 

The E2 flight simulator will support operators in the region at the Singapore-CAE Flight Training Centre near Changi Airport (SIN). 

Among the first pilots to train on the new FFS are those from Singapore Airlines’ subsidiary, Scoot, in preparation of the Embraer E190-E2 aircraft’s entry into service with the airline later this year. 

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 state-of-the-art CAE 7000XR Series FFS. 

“We celebrate the successful operations of the E2 simulator and comprehensive pilot training program and thank all our partners and employees who have been involved in this process,” Carlos Naufel, President and CEO of Embraer Services & Support, said. “This is part of Embraer’s commitment to grow our infrastructure in Asia Pacific and to contribute to the region’s aviation growth story. Along with CAE, we remain committed to providing high-quality training to our customers and their pilots.” 

Michel Azar-Hmouda, CAE’s Division President of Civil Aviation Training, described the new simulator opening in APAC as a “significant milestone”. 

“Technology is at the core of the new E2 program, with CAE’s VSIM, CBTA courseware and latest-generation FFS preparing pilots for the entry-into-service and safe operation of the E2 in the APAC Region,” Azar-Hmouda commented. 

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

“Embraer and CAE’s launch of the E-Jets E2 full-flight simulator in Singapore is the first of its kind in Asia Pacific. 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,” Elaine Teo, Senior Vice President, Global Enterprises Division, Singapore Economic Development Board, said.
