EDM’s A330 Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer for China Southern Airlines passes Factory Acceptance Test

Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that the Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer (CEET) it has manufactured for China Southern Airlines has passed its Factory Acceptance Test (FAT).

Built at EDM’s facility in the UK, the A330 CEET will enable China Southern Airlines’ cabin crew to be fully trained in Safety and Emergency Procedures (SEP). Custom-made to the client’s exact specification, the CEET’s interior has replica galleys, lavatories, attendant seats and associated control panels. Fully controlled by a touch screen Instructor Operator Station (IOS), the CEET will enable crew to be highly trained in door and exit operation, evacuation procedures, pilot incapacitation, fire-fighting, cabin systems familiarisation and passenger management.

The CEET will also be fitted with SEPTRE, EDM’s market-leading audio-visual system that enables even higher levels of cabin crew training through the provision of pre-programmed emergency scenarios such as aborted take-off, engine fire, gear collapse, ditching, turbulence and decompression.

The CEET will be shipped and then installed on a hydraulic motion platform at the airline’s crew training facility in Guangzhou, China later this year. EDM is the world’s leading manufacturer of cabin crew training simulators and enjoys a market leading position in China.
