EDM’s two Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainers for Cathay Pacific pass Factory Acceptance Tests

Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that the two Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainers (CEETs) it has manufactured for Cathay Pacific have passed their Factory Acceptance Tests (FATs).

Built at EDM’s facility in the UK, the B777 and A330 CEETs will enable Cathay Pacific’s cabin crew to be fully trained in Safety and Emergency Procedures (SEP). Custom-made to the client’s exact specification, the CEETs’ interiors have replica galleys, lavatories, attendant seats and associated control panels. The simulators will enable crew to be highly trained in door and exit operation, evacuation procedures, pilot incapacitation, fire-fighting, cabin systems familiarisation and passenger management.

Both CEETs are fitted with SEPTRE LITE, EDM’s market-leading audio-visual system, that provides graphics at each passenger window and highly realistic audio to cover all phases of flight. SEPTRE LITE includes pre-programmed emergency scenarios such as aborted take-off, engine fire, gear collapse, turbulence, ditching and decompression making it the most advanced cabin crew training system on the market.

Both CEETs have been manufactured to a modular design to facilitate their transportation to the airline’s training facility at Hong Kong International Airport where they will be reassembled and installed next month.
