EDM has launched a new Virtual Slide Trainer to provide airline cabin crew with convenient virtual slide deployment training for safety and emergency procedures (SEPs).

The Virtual Slide Trainer has been designed to augment training through the use of simulators equipped with actual training slides. With training scenarios selected via an easy-to-use Instructor Operator Station (IOS), EDM says the product also reduces the cost and time associated with physical slide deployment training.

High definition projectors display animated Computer Generated Images (CGI) of various scenarios that include full and part inflation of the slide.

“After developing the Virtual Slide Trainer in collaboration with a number of our clients, we’re confident that airlines will find this product a very useful addition to their training suite,” commented Tony Bermingham, Managing Director of EDM. "We’re very excited to be focused on launching our new range of virtual cabin crew trainers over the coming months.”
