Spatial has been chosen by Aeroflot to supply two A321 door trainers, which will be used to train Aeroflot’s cabin crew to become completely proficient in the safe operation of the A321 aircraft emergency exits and doors including procedures for all normal, abnormal and emergency scenarios.
The high-fidelity devices will simulate all faults that may be encountered on the A321 aircraft door types including door and handle jams, power assist failures, automatic and manual slide inflation failures and door indicator malfunctions.
The trainers will provide all legacy and current A321 exit types, including the A321NX ACF semi-automatic Over Wing Exit (OWE) – as well attendant stations, passenger seating, replica overhead stowage bins and both standard and emergency lighting. The simulators will be seamlessly controlled by an intuitive, Instructor Operator Station (IOS).
After being manufactured at Spatial’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Dubai, the A321 door trainers will be installed at Aeroflot’s Crew Training Centre at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, Russia.
