First Airbus A320 Door and Slide Trainer in the Baltic States

As the first and only of its kind in the Baltic States, BAA Training has added a brand new Airbus A320 Door and Slide Trainer to its repertoire of training equipment. BAA Training continues to invest in its training equipment so it will be the first choice training provider. Having announced the 4 full flight simulator acquisition just last year, one of the leading aviation centres in Northern Europe accelerates into the new year with one more, state-of-the-art equipment addition to its headquarters in Vilnius. This addition opens the possibility for timely and cost-effective cabin crew and pilot training or training equipment leasing for airlines, as it can be easily reached via main European aviation hubs on a daily basis.

Manufactured by ASP the Air-Space Airbus A318/A319/320/321 Door Trainer and the original Over Wing Exit – simulate door system operations in both normal and emergency conditions as well as opening escape hatches. The main front left Door 1L of the trainer is an original A320 Door assembled with all of the mechanisms and drives, which allows a real hands-on experience. The trainer includes an attendant seat (double) with a handset and a FAP, near the main door, and triple seats for passengers (two rows) with call the flight attendant buttons. Exercises for the crew in the cockpit are activated in an instructor station where a touch screen is implemented. The slide is applicable for Airbus A318/A319/320/321 as its height is 3480 mm, width is 1600 mm, and length is 6700 mm.

“The growing aviation market raises a need for aviation personnel. At the moment, there are 331 airlines operating 7527 A320 Family aircraft worldwide, 7258 of which are operable A320 planes. In 2016, Airbus had the highest A320 Family aircraft production rate ever with 545 deliveries. To operate one aircraft an airline needs approximately 20 flight crew members who must all go through an Operator Conversion Course with a Door and Slide Training course included. In addition, Door and Slide Training is an integrated part of the training that is required every 3 years for each crew member. Obviously, there is no doubt in the need for training, the only question is – what level of training quality to choose”, comments Martynas Mazeika, COO at BAA Training.

BAA Training already has a Flight Navigation Procedure Trainer (FNTP II) used for pilot Ab Initio training simulating a Tecnam P2006T/Cessna 172, Touch Screen Trainer (TST) for Airbus A320, Boeing 737 CL, as well as Airbus A320 full flight simulators at its headquarters in Vilnius. Furthermore, BAA Training has recently announced the acquisition of 4 additional full flight simulators. By the end of 2018, BAA Training will be operating 5 full-flight simulators in Vilnius: three Airbus A320, one Boeing 737 CL, and one Boeing 737 NG. With the acquisition of the Airbus A320 Door and Slide Trainer, BAA Training proves to be a provider of complex aviation personnel training for pilot, cabin crew, or even ground handling training.
