EDM, a global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, has announced that the E170 Door Trainer it has manufactured for S7 Airlines passed its Factory Acceptance Test (FAT).
Designed and built at EDM´s facility in Manchester, UK, the Embraer E170 Door Trainer will enable S7 Airline´s cabin crew to be comprehensively trained in the operation of this aircraft door type under all normal, abnormal and emergency conditions. Features include door arming and disarming, external door operation, emergency operation, emergency lights, door status indicators and a part-functional flight attendant panel (FAP). Integrated door malfunctions include handle and door block, power assist failure and slide deployment failure.
The Russian airline´s Training Instructors will be able to operate the door via an easy-to-use touchscreen Instructor Operator Station (IOS) that simulates all the faults and malfunctions that may be encountered by the cabin crew under actual operational conditions.
The FAT was granted following two days of rigorous inspection and testing carried out by a senior team of S7 Airlines´ cabin crew training instructors and simulator engineers. The E170 Door Trainer will be installed at S7 Airlines´ crew training centre in Moscow this month where it will be positioned at operational height and fitted with a real slide to allow crew to be fully trained in slide safety and emergency procedures.
