CABIN CREW TRAINING

RP Aero Systems has been awarded a contract by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to manufacture and install a Boeing 787 door trainer at their Training Centre in Schiphol Airport.

"The door trainer will include all the necessary functions to meet the modern day training needs together with features specific to the B787 aircraft," said RP Aero Systems managing director, Stephen Foster.

The trainer will consist of a 1L main door with crew attendant seat, EDW dimming system, AMOD and will be a true representation of the new B787 Dreamliner aircraft. The 1L door will include RP's advanced electronic door hinge and handle control system and out of the window visual system.

The trainer will be provided in time for KLM to train cabin crew in preparation for the arrival of their new Dreamliner aircraft in the fourth quarter of 2015.
