To provide training for Scoot crew members, Embraer and CAE opened a flight simulator in Singapore last week.

The facility is also expected to be used by pilots from SKS Airways, a Malaysian airline that has ordered 10 E195-E2s whose first plane is expected to be delivered in the second quarter.

The two carriers will be responsible for the debut of Embraer’s new family of commercial jets in Southeast Asia, a market where the company has great ambitions.
