Posted 5 February 2019 · Add Comment

Spatial, a provider of cabin crew training simulators based in the UAE, has announced that it is to manufacture an A321NX Extended Over Wing Exit Trainer for Aer Lingus.

The high fidelity custom-built trainer will enable Aer Lingus’s cabin crew to be comprehensively trained to the highest standards of passenger service as well as all Safety and Emergency Procedures (SEPs) associated with the real A321NX semi-automatic door. The state-of-the-art simulator will include an Attendant Station complete with touch screen Flight Attendant Panel (FAP), replica SpaceFlex lavatories and galleys, flight deck door, overhead stowage bins, passenger seats with replicated in-flight entertainment and communication systems.

Once finished, the A321NX Extended Over Wing Exit Trainer will be shipped and installed at  Aer Lingus’s Training Academy based at Dublin Airport. The device will join the A330 Cabin Service Trainer (CST) Spatial built for the airline last year and the A320 CEET and A330 Door Trainers that Spatial upgraded the previous year.   

Henry Robertson, managing director at Spatial said: "It’s a pleasure to be working with our fantastic client, Aer Lingus, once again and we’re very much looking forward to delivering another high quality simulator to their world-class crew training academy in Dublin.”

Eamon Kierans, Manager of Training Standards at Aer Lingus said “Spatial have once again, been able to meet the requirements of Aer Lingus for the A321neo project. We look forward to the commissioning of the new trainer and future cooperation with Spatial in support of our training devices.”

Noel Houlihan, safety training officer at Aer Lingus said: “We are delighted to once again be working with Spatial on this exciting new project. The A321neo exit trainer will greatly assist Aer Lingus in delivering the highest standard of training as we prepare for the introduction of the neo to our fleet later in the year.”
