SPATIAL TO PROVIDE MULTIPLE FLIGHT CREW TRAINING DEVICES FOR A NEW STATE OF THE ART TRAINING CENTRE FOR KUWAIT AIRWAYS
Dubai, UAE. Spatial, the world’s leading provider of flight crew simulators, has entered a new partnership with Kuwait Airways to manufacture and deliver three-door trainers, a widebody CEET on motion, and a cockpit trainer as well as upgrading Kuwait Airways’ existing A320 CEET.
The B747 door trainers will simulate both the lower and upper deck exits of the aircraft. They will be accompanied by a B737 Max door trainer, a widebody CEET on motion, and a cockpit trainer. Both the CEET on motion and cockpit trainer will be equipped with exits from a variety of different aircraft types.
Alongside the new devices, Spatial will be responsible for the upgrading of an existing A320 CEET.
Existing components will be upgraded and replaced where necessary to bring the device right up to date with the latest safety mechanisms and specifications. The devices will provide training and allow for all crew to become fully proficient for every eventual onboard emergency scenario.
Upon completion, the devices will be housed at a brand-new state of the art aviation training organization in Kuwait. The facility will oversee the training of thousands of flight crew annually.
Marc Van Den Broucque, Managing Director at Spatial said: “We are very pleased to be assisting Kuwait Airways with the setup of their new ATO, which will undoubtedly be a world-class facility. This will future-proof their training capabilities for both Kuwait Airways’ current and future fleet.”
Maen Razouqi, Chief Executive Officer at Kuwait Airways said: “We at Kuwait Airways are dedicated to maintaining maximum safety in all our flight operations and hence our adherence and commitment to providing training for our crew which is accurate and realistic, through the latest flight crew simulators, training equipment and devices.
Kuwait Airways is pleased with the partnership with Spatial to provide multiple flight crew training devices which will be housed at Kuwait Airways’ new Aviation Training Academy and headed by Captain Ali Al-Marri.”
