After building and then shipping the A350 Door Trainer to Singapore Airlines’ Training Centre, a team from EDM travelled to Singapore in October to install the state-of-the-art simulator.
A senior team from the airline granted the training equipment its SAT after a rigorous inspection and testing process.
After being approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore’s Airworthiness Department, the Door Trainer will be employed extensively to train cabin crew in the safe operation of the A350 main door including procedures for normal, abnormal and emergency operation.
The simulator comprises standard and customized features including a functional Additional Attendant Panel (AAP), touch screen Forward Attendant Panel (FAP), Attendant Indication Panel (AIP), tablet Instructor Operating Station (IOS) and bi-folding lavatory door and lavatory cubicle.
Singapore Airlines expects to begin A350 service by April 2016.
