UK-based EDM's door trainer for All Nippon Airways passes factory acceptance test

EDM´s B777 door trainer, manufactured for All Nippon Airways (ANA) has passed its factory acceptance test (FAT) earlier this month, the company said.

Built and designed at EDM´s 100,000 square feet facility in Manchester in the UK, the B777 door trainer will enable ANA´s cabin crew to be fully trained in the proficient operation of this aircraft door type under all normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.

The factory acceptance test was granted following two days of inspection and testing carried out by a senior team of ANA safety trainers and simulator engineers. The B777 door trainer is currently being installed at ANA´s training centre in Ota-ku, Tokyo.

EDM is a global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors.
