EDM completes CDR with China Eastern Airlines

Posted 1 November 2017 · Add Comment

Manchester based EDM has successfully completed a Critical Design Review (CDR) with China Eastern Airlines for the build of two B787 Door Trainers.

EDM announced its contract win with China Eastern Airlines earlier this year. A team from the airline visited EDM last month to conduct a detailed technical review of the project to ensure that the two B787 Door Trainers are now ready to proceed to the manufacturing phase and that agreed performance requirements are met. 

The Door Trainers will be specifically used to train cabin crew in the safe operation of the exit door of the B787 Dreamliner under a variety of normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.

Once completed they will be shipped and installed at China Eastern Airlines’ cabin crew training academy in Shanghai, China.

EDM has previously manufactured an A320 and two B777 Door Trainers for China Eastern Airlines.

The company is the leading supplier of cabin crew training simulators in China and the rest of the world.
