EDM will be launching SEPTRE LITE at the World Aviation Training Symposium & Tradeshow (WATS) in Orlando, USA, from April 18-21 2016.

SEPTRE LITE is the lower-cost version of the SEPTRE, an advanced training system for airline cabin crew. SEPTRE LITE encompasses an audio-visual system that can be fitted onto new or existing cabin emergency evacuation trainers (CEETs), providing graphics at each passenger window and highly realistic audio that covers all phases of flight. SEPTRE LITE includes pre-programmed emergency scenarios such as aborted take-off, engine fire, gear collapse, turbulence, ditching and decompression. SEPTRE LITE includes all the features of the full SEPTRE system, with one difference – the visual scenes are duplicated at each window.

A team from EDM will be at WATS to demonstrate SEPTRE LITE as well as discuss the rest of the company’s product portfolio for the civil airline market, which includes door trainers, cabin service trainers, CEETs and real fire trainers for any aircraft type.

WATS is the world’s largest annual gathering of aviation training professionals. Now in its 19th year, the four-day event includes 100 conference presentations with 60 companies showcasing their products and services in the adjacent exhibition. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Optimizing Blended Learning and Training Technology.’ EDM will be exhibiting on booth 623.
