Thai Flight Training (TFT), a subsidiary of Thai Airways, recently ordered an Airbus A320 door trainer from Spatial Composite Solutions.
This will offer training on the L1 door and over wing exit and is equipped with Spatial’s door visuals system.
The device is due to come into service in the second quarter of 2018. Prior to this it will be displayed at the IATA Cabin Operations Safety Conference 2018 in Bangkok on 8-10 May.
“We are pleased to have been awarded this contract by TFT," states Marc Van den Broucque, Managing Director at Spatial. "Working closely together on this bespoke design, we have ensured that we can offer a well-equipped device at an attractive price to allow TFT to expand its operations further.”
