30 August 2011

Spatial Composite Solutions has just delivered its first A320 Cabin Service Trainer to Virgin America in San Francisco.

According to Spatial Composites the primary structures of the A320 are of composite construction with aramid fibre (AFRP), glass fibre (GFRP) and carbon fibre (CFRP) reinforced plastics. They say the A320 is the first subsonic aircraft to incorporate composite primary structures.

""The Virgin America Cabin Service Trainer is a 1:1 scale replica of an actual Airbus A320 fuselage and features an enhanced cabin layout complete with galleys, seats, overhead stowage bins, operational PSU's and an over wing exit,"" said Spatial Composite's Chief Executive Joseph McKeever.

The device will provide Virgin America with a realistic environment in which to train cabin crew on all aspects of premium cabin service procedures. It will be located at the company's training facility in their Burlingame H.Q. close to San Francisco International Airport.
