Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defense sectors, announced today that it has completed a project to supply six Door Trainers for Air Canada. The A220-300 Door Trainers have been installed in Canada across three sites: Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.

The A220-300 Aircraft (previously known as C Series CS300) L1 Door Trainer and Overwing Exit Trainer (hereinafter referred to as L1 DT & OWET respectively) are designed and certified specifically to meet the training requirements as defined in all international cabin crew training standards.

With this in mind, our Door Trainers are designed to be ultra-realistic in its use to help train cabin crew through various open scenarios. Our equipment parallels the Airbus aircraft, being designed from OEM data, which further benefits:

  • Door familiarisation procedures
  • Securing the cabin for flight
  • Internal and external operation of the door – Normal and Emergency Operation
  • Carrying out practice evacuation procedures
  • Experiencing the force and movement of the door and use of door assist handles
  • Operation of slide inflation procedure – Emergency Operation
  • Experiencing, and the recognition of door malfunctions during operation
  • Flight attendant’s seats use and operation
  • Communications, sounds and alarms operation and recognition
