I notice that a good number of the aircraft that are partially dismantled in the various boneyards have had their doors cut out.

Is this for flight attendant training on the doors or are those some of the parts that need to be replaced most often which would mean that they're the highest in demand on the parts market? Thanks,

We purchased a 737-200 door & a G2 over wing emergency exit window for our Corporate Flight Attendant training. We were going to purchase a 747-100 door for the Air Force 1 Flight Attendant training, but we cancelled out.

So the answer is, yes, it could be.

How does a Door help in training apart from being a static training aid.
How is it used.

I feel Majority of Rotables are removed & sold as spares,Hence the Doors too.

Nope, our doors are fully operational. They cut out the door & the surrounding assembly, this way everything works, we then built a support structure & made a trainer out of the doors.
