EDM to Launch VR Cabin Crew Training Simulators at WATS 2017

Posted on Thursday 20th April 2017 | Airline

EDM is launching its new range of virtual reality (VR) cabin crew training simulators at the World Aviation Training Conference and Tradeshow (WATS) in Orlando, Florida, May 2 - 4 2017.

EDM has developed its new VR product range to meet the increasing demand from airlines wanting to train their cabin crew utilising the very latest technology. Designed to complement airlines’ existing training hardware, EDM’s new suite of VR simulators will enable cabin crew to quickly learn safety and emergency procedures (SEPs) in a realistic and immersive VR environment. EDM’s launch VR range includes a virtual slide trainer developed in collaboration with Immersive Display Solutions and a Virtual Door Trainer.

VR training has been proven to improve information retention and recall while simplifying complex training scenarios.

EDM will also be launching its new app at WATS that allows aviation training professionals to easily and quickly design cabin crew training simulators that exactly meet their requirements. The first version of the app enables users configure door trainers and will be followed later in 2017 with an enhanced version to facilitate the design of cabin service trainers and cabin emergency evacuation trainers.

A team from EDM will be present at WATS to demonstrate its new product range as well as discuss the rest of the company’s product portfolio which includes door trainers, cabin service trainers, cabin emergency evacuation trainers and real fire trainers for any aircraft type.

WATS is the world’s largest annual gathering of aviation training professionals. Now in its 20th year, this 3-day event includes 100 conference presentations and 60 companies showcasing their products and services in the adjacent exhibition. The theme of this year’s event is: ‘Aviation Simulation and Training: A Critical Safety-Driven Industry Prepares for the Future’. EDM will be exhibiting on booth 305.
