Newton Design’s aircraft Door Trainers are fully functional, high fidelity simulations of actual aircraft doors. The Door Trainers match the operational characteristics of the aircraft equipment, and are designed to train cabin crew on the operation of the doors in normal, abnormal, and emergency conditions.
Our Door Trainers can simulate any malfunction scenario that cabin crews may experience, via an intuitive touchscreen Instructor Operator Station (IOS). They are designed and manufactured to withstand the rigors of high volume training, and are calibrated to faithfully replicate the forces required to operate the aircraft door.
For aircraft with overwing exits, our Extended Door Trainers include the main entry door and the overwing exit in one modular training device.
Other training features can be added to both types of door trainer, including passenger seating, window visual simulations, overhead bins, passenger service units, and drop-down oxygen masks.
If you require a stand-alone overwing exit, galley service door, or dump-out door training simulator, Newton Design can provide what you need. If your fleet includes the latest automatic-opening overwing exits (top hinge), dump-out doors (bottom hinge) or “classic” plug-type exits, we will utilize aircraft manufacturer data and/or actual exits removed from end-of-life aircraft to deliver a turnkey training solution. If desired, automatic-opening exit trainers can include an “auto close” feature, which greatly increases training efficiency and student throughput. Passenger seats, overhead bins, and window visual simulations can be added to enhance training realism.
Newton Design is very experienced in the use of actual aircraft components (doors, exits, and entire fuselages) as the basis for simulation and training systems. We employ numerous certified airframe/powerplant mechanics on our staff, allowing us to perform the necessary modifications and updates required to convert airworthy components into training simulators.
