EDM has completed a project with All Nippon Airways (ANA) following the installation of a high-fidelity B777 Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer (CEET) at their new, state-of-the-art training centre, ANA Blue Base.

The B777 trainer features four fully functional B777 training doors (with simulated malfunctions); general familiarisation with the cabin internal layout including representative interiors and functional towage areas; fully functional galley monuments including powered units and water supply/drainage; representative lavatory cubicles for smoke/fire training, attendant call procedures and door removal; operation of the cabin attendant seats; operation of the cabin lighting systems and operation of cabin interphone and communication system among other features.

The CEET is designed specifically to meet the Buyer’s requirements and to meet the training requirements as defined in the relevant international cabin crew training standards.

EDM paid particular attention to the critical dimensions within the cabin such as distances from attendant stations to door open and close handles, indications and warnings, distances to emergency equipment and simulation of other features that underpin the achievement by the crew of critical training objectives.

The CEET is designed for ease of operation from an instructional perspective with particular attention being paid to the speed and ease (efficiency) in which a training scenario can be set up, instigated, de-briefed and repeated via the unique EDM Safety and Emergency Procedures Training Reality Engine (SEPTRE) system.

The B777 CEET was designed and manufactured to be broken up into modules for ease of transport and delivery to this unique facility, entering via an access point in to the second floor.
