Air Astana has launched their new cabin emergency evacuation trainer (CEET) for the Airbus 320 family aircraft and real fire fighting trainer (RFFT) simulators, which are installed at the Flight Training Center in Astana.

These simulators are the only ones of their kind in Kazakhstan according to Air Astana, and have the capability to simulate various practical emergency situations as part of the training of cabin attendants and pilots, including incapacitation of one of the pilots, emergency opening, crowd control and evacuation of passengers, depressurization, real firefighting and orientation in the aircraft cabin in conditions of heavy smoke.

The airline has already begun safety and emergency training for existing and new cabin attendants and pilots.

The CEET and RFFT will be utilized throughout the year covering crew and pilot initial training for new joiners and the mandatory regulatory recurrent training required by legislation for current flight and cabin crew.

“New simulators are not only innovations, but also ensures our crews are trained to the highest standards in ‘reality’ conditions so that or customers can feel safe and cared for on every flight,” said Sandra Cullen, vice-president Training and Customer Experience. “These new simulators will allow the airline to save crew duty time, but most importantly enhance our already high level of flight and cabin crew training.”
