MANCHESTER, England, August 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it has won an order from a major US airline to supply a Virtual Slide Trainer (VST).

The VST provides practical slide deployment training for emergency evacuation on land and when ditching. The solution dramatically reduces the significant cost and time associated with the physical slide deployment training of airline cabin crew. The VST will be operated from an Instructor Operator Station (IOS) and fitted to an existing B777 Door Trainer as part of an upgrade programme.

The VST will use high definition projectors to display Computer Generated Images (CGI) of various slide inflation sequences that include full and part deployment of the slide on land and water. The VST will provide cabin crew with a highly representative, cognitive training device that will seamlessly augment the training provided through the use of Door and Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainers equipped with actual training slides.
