Spatial Composite Solutions has been engaged by Philippine airline Cebu Pacific Air for the supply, installation and commissioning of an Airbus A330 Door Trainer to be used for training cabin crew on the use and troubleshooting of the aircraft door.
The training equipment will be installed at Cebu Pacific’s training facility in Manila.
The agreement entails the delivery and full set-up of a Type A door with a variety of door and slide malfunctions, as well as functional flight attendant panel, attendant information panels and interphones, all utilising Spatial's robust PLC system to minimise maintenance needs.
This device is the second Spatial will deliver to Cebu Pacific, having provided an A320 door trainer in 2013.
"It is always a privilege to provide additional devices to an existing client," says Henry Robertson, Spatial's Managing Director. "This agreement further validates that we are successfully executing our strategy to deliver the highest quality devices alongside strong customer support at a price level representing exceptional value for money."
“Since engaging Spatial in 2013, Cebu Pacific has benefitted from its pro-active and best-in-class technical and customer support," notes Rosita Menchaca, Vice President for Inflight Services. "Spatial’s training equipment is so versatile and adaptable that we have been able to apply real-world scenarios to enhance the training of our crew.”
