Gulf Aviation Academy (GAA) recently ordered a Boeing 787 door trainer from Spatial Composite Solutions, complete with Spatial’s virtual slide trainer.
The device is due to come into service in Q1 2018.
This represents the third device that GAA has acquired from Spatial and will sit alongside its Embraer and Airbus cabin emergency evacuation trainers.
“As part of our continuing growth we are looking forward to assembling the B787 door trainer in our facility and expanding our cabin crew training by offering the latest aircraft in operation to the crew,” states Capt. Dhaffer Al Abbasi, CEO at GAA. “Spatial has been a highly supportive partner for us over the years and we are pleased to continue working with them.”
