MANCHESTER, England, July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it has collaborated with Martin-Baker to make its F-35 ejection seat exhibit as realistic as possible at the forthcoming Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT).

Martin-Baker, the world's leading manufacturer of ejection seats and related equipment, commissioned EDM to provide a bespoke audio-visual interactive system for the F-35 US16E ejection seat being demonstrated at the airshow. This will give visitors the experience of being ejected from the seat of a fighter jet during normal flight. EDM has also designed and manufactured a custom-made structure to accommodate the ejection seat and produced graphical representations of the instruments and switch panels in the cockpit to the left and right of the seat to create a highly realistic flying experience for the general public to enjoy.

Visitors to RIAT can find the Martin-Baker exhibition booth in the Techno Zone Marquee. Running from 8th to 10th July at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, RIAT is the world's largest military airshow. Organised in support of the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust, this year's show is expected to attract over 150,000 spectators.
