RP Aero Systems has been awarded a contract by EVA Airways to manufacture and install a Boeing 787 door trainer at their Training Centre in Taiwan.

"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 attendant seat. The 1L door will include RP's advanced electronic door hings and handle control system, deployable girt bar, airline specific customisations and a state of the art virtual slide and out of window visual system.

The trainer will be installed in Q4 2017.
