The story started in 2012 when the flight operations director from a fast-growing Eastern European airline was looking for a sophisticated cabin fire trainer to replace the barbeque-style fire trainer they were using up to then. Their desire was to train in a realistic cabin environment and train realistic scenario's in order to provide their cabin crew with the knowledge, skills and confidence to fight fires in the cabin. Flame Aviation's founder, Robin Pijnaker was't able to find exactly the kind of equipment in the market the airline was looking for. A subsitute was purchased instead.

Two years later, Flame Aviation created the first cabin fire trainer in the world capable of simulating realistic cabin fire scenarios. For this purpose experienced staff from several reputable airlines where invited to give their views, share experiences and address their operational needs. The result was a blueprint of the next-generation cabin fire and smoke trainer.

A first proto-type was designed and build at Flame's current factory in Leiden, The Netherlands. As from the very first fire trainer we manufactured, we have been enthousiastic to hear from airlines, authorities or industry professionals about great ideas to further enhance cabin fire training. We have continously implemented these ideas and improvements into our fire trainers. That is why we now manufacture the most safe, reliable and sophisticated fire trainers in the world. We look forward you joining our community!
