TAG Global Training installs fire and smoke training rig at Farnborough
TAG Global Training, TAG Aviation Europe’s professional crew training division, has taken delivery of a new purpose-built fire and smoke training rig at its aviation training centre based at TAG Farnborough Airport.
The fuselage-shaped unit was designed by Minerva Simulation Facilities to TAG Global Training’s specifications with a representative business jet interior and will be used to simulate potential fire-related emergencies on-board business aviation aircraft.
TAG Global Training will use the rig as a fire safety training tool for TAG Aviation Europe’s pilots and cabin crew. It is also the first fire and smoke training rig of its kind in the UK to be made available to other operators, individual aircraft owners and aviation training institutions.
“At TAG Aviation we are committed to industry-leading safety standards,” said Debbie Elliott, manager, TAG Global Training. “An in-flight fire is one of the most dangerous situations that crew and customers can face and with this new rig we are able to offer training that could potentially save lives. All flight crews managed by TAG Aviation Europe will have the opportunity to undergo training on the rig and we welcome others in the business aviation industry to take advantage of this state-of-the-art facility.”
