747 aircraft trainer

As part of a large scale Special Forces training facility for a Ministry of Interior in the Middle East, CDUK was awarded a project to design, fabricate and deliver a full-scale live-fire Boeing 747 twin-deck aircraft mock-up. The project was completed in 2005.

The 747 aircraft mock-up was installed on a hydraulic jacking system within an air-conditioned indoor battle hall. The aircraft mock-up is ballistically rated to 9mm Ball ammunition and incorporates the following features:

  • full scale twin-deck fuselage
  • realistic door access
  • anti-ricochet interior including cockpit, first, business and economy class seating, lockers, service areas and toilets
  • bullet protection systems and anti-ricochet finishes
  • air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation
  • safety and monitoring systems
  • electronic targetry systems.
