Embraer CAE Training Services (ECTS) celebrated a milestone in its training program, as the first two type ratings were recently issued by using the Phenom 100 Full-Flight Simulator (FFS) certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Keith Christensen and his son Ryan received their Phenom 100 type ratings after a 15-day training period at the ECTS facilities located in CAE’s SimuFlite Training Center in Dallas, Texas, U.S.

“Our congratulations go to Keith and Ryan for this very special achievement,” said Simon Newitt, Embraer Director of Customer Training. “Not so long ago, we were celebrating the Frost family (Jim and Betsy) as the first to receive their type ratings by training with the aircraft. Now, we have the Christensens becoming the first Phenom 100 pilots to receive their type ratings by using the Full-Flight Simulator.”

The simulator was certified last September and has been enthusiastically recommended by Keith Christensen, President and founder of Christensen Industries, a company with 20 years of experience in manufacturing and assembling precision sheet metal and machined parts based in Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S. “I have been through many pilot training courses, but never have I learned so much about a plane! The ECTS facilities are unparalleled and the simulator provides one of the most realistic flying experiences I have ever had. It was a very thorough, challenging program, administered by highly capable professionals, and I am particularly proud to have gone through this intense learning undertaking with my son Ryan.”
