Tuesday, July 30, 2013
CEBU Pacific Air (CEB) recently took delivery of an Airbus A320 Door Trainer from Spatial Composite Solutions, a Dubai-based manufacturer of crew training equipment for the civil aviation and aerospace industries. The A320 Door Trainer, which has been installed at CEB’s crew training facility in Manila, incorporates the latest technology to facilitate cabin crew training on all normal and emergency door operations.
CEB is the only airline in the Philippines to use a state-of-the-art Door Trainer for its cabin crew. Its features include an A320 replica fuselage, a functional passenger door, an over wing exit, a functional panel with oxygen drop out masks, and an emergency lighting system. It represents an investment of $350,000.
“Safety has always been CEB’s primary priority. We have been working hand in hand with Spatial Composites for over a year now to develop and refine the Door Trainer’s specifications. This will provide our crew with the best and latest training opportunities through a full range of safety training scenarios,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
“We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Cebu Pacific on this exciting project, which will enable the airline to further carry out its safety and emergency door training procedures in Manila,“ said Joseph McKeever, CEO. of Spatial Composites. “We believe this is the first A320 cabin crew training device to be installed anywhere in the Philippines. CEB has clearly raised the bar for safety training.” (PR)
