S7 Airlines selects EDM to manufacture E170 door trainer

UK-based EDM has won an order to manufacture an E170 door trainer for Russia-based S7 Airlines, the company said.

The Door Trainer will be used to train the airlines´ cabin crew in the proficient use of the Embraer E170 exit door under all normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.

Designed and built to meet international regulatory standards, the door trainer 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.

EDM will design and build the E170 Door Trainer at its Manchester headquarters in the UK before shipping and installing it at S7 Airline´s crew training centre in Moscow.

EDM is a global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation, defence, rail, and other industries. The company provides airlines with door trainers, cabin service trainers, cabin emergency evacuation trainers and full size mockups and defence organisations with procedure trainers, maintenance trainers, ejection seats, simulators and full size replicas.
