The Engine Starting System Trainer (ESST) is a bolt-on option to Pennant’s Integrated Avionics Maintenance Trainer (IAMT). The enhancement provides an interactive training aid that focusses on a typical engine starting system.
Extending the existing IAMT functionality, the ESST drives a large display device external to the airframe to present a representative full and working 3d cutaway model of the engine supplemented by detailed electrical, fuel, air and oil schematics. The ESST provides a full working picture of the complete engine starting cycle, enabling the seamless instruction in part or full-cycle along with relevant faults consolidating student learning electrically and mechanically in engine starting and indication, pressures and temperatures and basic gas turbine theory.
Key Features include:
Engine model displayed on a 65″ touchscreen display
3D model showing real-time electrical, fuel air and oil schematics
Representative faults can be injected into the trainer
Pause ability allows instructor and student discussions to occur
Several teaching points from start, ignition and induction of the engine
