Long-term ALSIM customer HM Aerospace, based on the beautiful island of Langkawi, Malaysia, recently decided to go with ALSIM once again to supplement their mixed aircraft fleet with a simulator capable of replicating all of their entry-level training aircraft. The academy has already been operating three ALSIM AL42 devices since 2005.
The ALSIM AL250 is a generic and compact simulator for single & multi engine piston (SEP/MEP reconfigurable) PPL, CPL & IR training. The device meets all current regulatory standards and responds to training requirements of smaller and mid-sized ATOs, flight schools, and universities. With more than 30 devices installed worldwide, the AL250 has a proven track record for cost-effectiveness and helps save numerous aircraft hours.
Romain Chomel, Head of Training with HM Aerospace, explains why the academy has chosen ALSIM once again: “We’re glad to install the first AL250 simulator in Malaysia. The device will help us respond to the ever increasing airline demand here in Asia. Many new aircraft have been ordered by the airlines and the need for highly trained pilots can only be met by well equipped training facilities.”
Audrey Jeffroy, Sales Director with ALSIM, adds: “We would like to thank HM Aerospace for demonstrating their confidence in ALSIM once again. HM Aerospace, one of the most important flight schools in Malaysia, is rapidly growing and ALSIM is proud to be part of this development.”
About HM Aerospace
HM Aerospace Sdn Bhd (HMA) is Malaysia’s premier Flight Training Academy providing world-class training and facilities for cadet pilots. As a member of the Halim Mazmin Group, HMA has the capacity to train a minimum of 200 cadet pilots per year at their Langkawi facilities. For the last 12 years the school has been managed by its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Principal, Brigadier General Dato’ Ranjit Singh Gill, a retired officer from the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).
HMA was the first ATO in the country to use the Diamond series aircraft (DA40/DA42) for flight training. It was also the first to introduce the ALSIM FNPT II simulator featuring the GARMIN G1000 Glass Cockpit in South East Asia, which tremendously improved the quality of training and transition to type training with airlines. With its proven track record, HMA was selected by Malaysia Airlines (MAS) as one of their preferred training centers for their cadet pilots.
To date HMA has proudly trained nearly 1 300 commercial pilots who have successfully been placed into local airlines like Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Malindo Air, Firefly, MASwings and other airlines in Southeast Asia and in the Middle East like Singapore Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines, Wings Air (Lion Air), Eva Air, Korean Airlines, China Airlines, various airlines in Myanmar, Etihad Airways, Emirates, Saudi Airlines, Qatar Airways and Pakistan Airlines, just to name a few.
