Sir - Capt T A Seedsman wrote from Oman (Flight International, 5-11 February, P41) suggesting that ground engineers who carry out engine-power runs in expensive aircraft should receive simulator or fixed-base training.

In Dubai, Emirates does just that. All involved in engine runs receive thorough training in all possible start-malfunctions and practise dealing with hot starts and engine fires using fixed-base and full-flight simulators.
