RP Aero Systems A330 door trainer for AirAsia Academy

5th January 2009 - 15:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


RP Aero Systems has been awarded a contract by Airbus to manufacture an A330 door trainer and slide for installation at the AirAsia Training Academy in Kuala Lumpur.

The trainer will consist of a 1L main door complete with training slide and RP’s proprietary electronic door hinge and handle control system. The Trainer will feature a visual system providing out of the window scenes and a touch screen FAP panel.

The short delivery schedule will ensure that the equipment is ready for training beginning of 2009 to allow the Academy to provide crew training as quickly as possible for AirAsia X crews. The carrier, which has one A330 on lease, has taken two aircraft from its firm order for 25 since last October. Further deliveries will follow during this year.
