Posted 4 June 2018 · Add Comment

Spatial, a provider of cabin crew training simulators, has been selected by WestJet to manufacture a B787 Door Trainer.

 

Spatial will design and build the Door Trainer at its high-tech manufacturing facility in the UAE before shipping and installing it at WestJet’s crew training centre in Calgary, Canada. The state-of-the-art Door Trainer will enable the airline’s cabin crew to be fully trained in the safe operation of the B787 Dreamliner door. Emergency scenarios include door and handle jams, power assist failures, door indicator malfunctions and slide inflation failures. Spatial will also provide a Virtual Slide Trainer with the device. 

Henry Robertson, Managing Director at Spatial said: "WestJet is a pioneer in the provision of safe and affordable air travel and it’s a real privilege to be supplying them with equipment that will support the comprehensive training of their high-calibre cabin crew. North America is a key region for Spatial and we are committed to further growing our presence in this important market.”
