December 16, 2015 – EDM, a training simulator specialist, has been awarded a contract by All Nippon Airways (ANA) to supply a B777 door trainer.
EDM will manufacture the training tool at its Manchester headquarters in the UK before shipping and installing it at ANA’s crew training center in Ota-ku, Tokyo. Once onsite, the door trainer will be used extensively to educate ANA’s cabin crew in the proficient use of the B777 exit door under all normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.
The B777 door trainer will comprise a fully functional main door and attendant seat as well as features such as door mode selector, integrated door training malfunctions, gust lock, manual slide inflation handle, door assist handles, simulated audio sounds and exit lighting. The trainer will be controlled via an Instructor Operator Station.
In recent years, EDM has supplied a wide range of cabin crew training equipment to ANA including B787, B777, B767 and A320 Door Trainers.
