With the recent qualification of the new Legacy 650 Level D simulator, Embraer Executive Jets announces that FlightSafety International will be ready for training in June 2013 at its facilities in St. Louis, MO.
“FlightSafety International has been a great partner in pilot, cabin crew and maintenance training for Embraer Executive Jets programs and the first dedicated Level D Legacy 650 simulator is the latest example of that partnership,” said Edson Carlos Mallaco, Vice President Customer Support and Services, Embraer Executive Jets. “The simulator has the highest level of fidelity, quality and reliability and illustrates our continuing commitment to meeting customer needs.”
The simulator is equipped with FlightSafety International’s VITAL X visual system and has already received Level D qualification from the Federal Aviation Administration, the European Aviation Safety Agency and Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil in Brazil.
In addition to the Legacy 650, FlightSafety International also provides training for the Lineage 1000 and is scheduled to provide training for both the fly-by-wire Legacy 500, which enters service in 2014, and the fly-by-wire Legacy 450 before it enters service on year later in 2015.
