EDM announced today that the second Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer (CEET) it has manufactured for Ethiopian Airlines passed its Factory Acceptance Test (FAT).

Built at EDM’s Manchester facility in the UK, the CEET has a dual B787 / B777 configuration allowing Ethiopian Airlines’ cabin crew to train on both aircraft types. Consisting of business and economy class seats, the interior also has a replica galley, lavatories and cabin attendant seats and associated control panels. The CEET is fitted with SEPTRE, EDM’s industry-leading audio-visual system that includes pre-programmed emergency scenarios such as aborted take-off, engine fire, gear collapse, turbulence, ditching and decompression making it the most advanced cabin crew training system on the market.

This CEET has been manufactured to a modular design to facilitate its transportation to Ethiopia next month where it will be reassembled and installed at the airline’s new training facility in Addis Ababa which EDM helped to design. The CEET will join the rest of the training simulation equipment already built and delivered by EDM as part of this major contract with Ethiopian Airlines which includes a B737 CEET on an electric motion platform and A350, B767 and Bombardier Q400 Door Trainers.

To support instructor training, each EDM training simulator has a similar Instructor Operator Station (IOS) interface and common features across all of the equipment to make crew familiarity with the simulators more rapid. EDM will support all of the training equipment via remote diagnostics where possible.
