Our job is to turn ordinary crews into elite crews and the closer we can get them to the real thing, the better they can handle real world situations in the air, in the hangar and at home.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
FACTS® Training International announced today that it has introduced the first of three new mobile aircraft cabin fire trainers into their fleet of emergency procedures simulators.
The new mobile trainers allow crewmembers to experience in-flight fire fighting in an enclosed business aircraft cabin-like environment. The first simulator, dubbed “FACTS Fire 1”, produces smoke and live fire from three separate locations; an enclosed lavatory, a galley and cabin divan seating area. Crewmembers use smoke hoods, protective gear and fire extinguishers to combat fire in these spaces.
“FACTS Training is known for it’s industry standard program that incorporates mobile full motion cabin simulators in order to provide a more realistic emergency procedures training experience,” said Jeffrey Roberts, CEO of AirCare Solutions Group and FACTS Training International, “The cabin fire training simulators add a whole new dimension to this realism. Our job is to turn ordinary crews into elite crews and the closer we can get them to the real thing, the better they can handle real world situations in the air, in the hangar and at home.”

The company’s courses combine classroom instruction with extensive hands-on equipment drills to provide an elite training experience for pilots, flight attendants, maintenance technicians and flight engineers.
