The simulator being launched in Europe, at a location that will be announced at a later date, will be the fourth Praetor simulator.
The Florida-based simulator is already FAA-certified, according to Embraer, who claims that the Praetor 500 and 600 are the “most technologically advanced aircraft in their categories”.
Embraer Services & Support president and CEO Carlos Naufel emphasised how the launch of the new simulators will help offer enhanced training practices and increase customer support: “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.”
The Praetor 500 has been seen to have outperformed certification expectations, flying 3,340 nautical miles (6,186 km) with four passengers.
