US airline orders virtual slide trainer

0

August 3, 2016 – EDM, a provider of training simulators, has won an order from an unnamed “major US airline” to supply a Virtual Slide Trainer (VST).

The VST provides practical slide deployment training for emergency evacuation on land and when ditching, which EDM says is a more cost- and time-efficient means of training airline cabin crew than physical slide deployment training. The VST will be operated from an Instructor Operator Station (IOS) and fitted to an existing B777 Door Trainer as part of an upgrade program.

The VST will use high-definition projectors to display Computer Generated Images (CGI) of various slide inflation sequences that include full and part deployment of the slide on land and water.
