This simulator will enable the airline to train their cabin crew and certify them to the new aircraft type. The Extended Door Trainer is fitted with key features to help simulate a number of scenarios that helps practice everyday functionality, but also for emergency situations.

The animation is automatically triggered when the Door opens in armed/emergency mode, or when the manual slide inflation handle is pulled.

The EDM team successfully concluded the installation of airBaltic’s A220 Extended Door Trainer with its Site Acceptance Test (SAT) in March 2020 in Riga, Latvia.
