Geneva, Switzerland, May 20, 2013 – 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.”
