Azul orders hybrid A320/A330 evacuation trainer


Cabin crew training simulators provider, Spatial has secured a contract to manufacture a hybrid A320/A330 Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer (CEET) for Brazilian airline, Azul. The simulator will be manufactured at Spatial’s facility in Dubai, and is designed to provide a realistic training environment for the airline’s cabin crew, enabling them to become proficient in safety and emergency procedures (SEPs) for the A320, including door operation, evacuation, fire and smoke training, cabin communications and aircraft systems familiarisation, secure cockpit procedures and emergency equipment usage.

The CEET will be fitted with a fully functional galley, cabin lighting, passenger seating, replica lavatories, overhead stowage and attendant seats so that the simulator can also be used for passenger service and management training. The CEET will also be fitted with an A330 door that will enable crew to train in the safe operation of this door type under a variety of normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.

Nalim Carlini, training and development manager at Azul, said, “We are very excited about the arrival of our cabin trainer. We will use it for the initial training of new flight attendants as well as for recurrent training and it will help us to perfectly simulate both routine situations and prepare our crew for eventual emergencies. All this in an equipment that will keep our group extremely engaged.”
