WestJet has commissioned Dubai-based cabin crew training simulator supplier, Spatial to manufacture a Boeing 787 Dreamliner door trainer for use at its crew training center in Calgary, Canada. The simulator will be used as a tool for training the airline’s cabin crew in the safe operation of the B787 Dreamliner door, with functions for practicing how to deal with emergency scenarios such as door and handle jams, power assist failures, door indicator malfunctions and slide inflation failures. As part of the contract, a virtual slide trainer is also being provided with the device.
