The program is designed to provide the aircraft maintenance technician with the working knowledge needed to maintain the Phenom aircraft in both a safe and cost-effective manner.



Multi-phase learning approach

Embraer CAE Training Services applies a multi-phase learning approach to both the pilot and aircraft maintenance technician training programs. This approach allows for a more integrate real-world learning experience. The integrated multi-phase learning approach includes self-paced online learning and review, instructor-led classroom courses, and hands-on simulator training.

  • Learning online: Embraer CAE Training Services provides computer based training (CBT) where clients can prepare and review material prior to and after classroom sessions - at their convenience and at their own pace.
  • In the classroom: Our state-of-the-art multi-media classrooms, along with the latest technology advanced training aids create a real-world learning experience. These courses reinforce the online training material and provide a forum for discussion and developing an in-depth understanding of the aircraft, for both pilots and aircraft maintenance technicians. The classroom experience is further reinforced by providing avionics and aircraft systems training in Phenom 100 Integrated Procedures Trainer (IPT) and Garmin desktop trainers.
  • In a full-flight simulator: CAE’s full-flight simulators (FFS) provide a realistic flight training environment. The Phenom cockpit along with all its systems is recreated in order to give the client the complete look and feel of being in actual flight or maintaining an actual aircraft.
