A350 Door Trainer leaves EDM for Ethiopian Airlines

28 August 2015


Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it has shipped an A350 Door Trainer to Ethiopian Airlines.

The Door Trainer will enable Ethiopian Airlines’ cabin crew to be fully trained in the operation of A350 aircraft exits and doors including procedures for normal, abnormal and emergency operation. Built to meet EU-OPS and associated standards using Airbus licensed data, the A350 Door Trainer is designed to meet 20,000 door opening cycles per annum.

The A350 Door Trainer is travelling this week to Addis Ababa along with a B737 Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer (CEET) that EDM has manufactured for Ethiopian Airlines as part of a contract to supply a broad range of training products. Both simulators will be installed at Ethiopian Airlines’ state-of- the-art training facility at Bola International Airport along with an extended B767 Door Trainer and a Bombardier Q400 Door Trainer that EDM delivered to the facility last month. EDM is also manufacturing a hybrid B787 / B777 CEET for Ethiopian Airlines which is due to be completed towards the end of this year.

EDM was the first company in the industry to produce an A350 Door Trainer when it manufactured one for Cathay Pacific at the beginning of this year. This latest A350 Door Trainer is the company’s second and a third is currently in production for Singapore Airlines. EDM was also the first to market with a B787 Door Trainer for its clients All Nippon Airways and Continental Airlines.
