Alsim is pleased to announce that Solent Freight Services LTD has chosen them, for the installation of their first South American based ALX simulator. The acquisition of an ALX marks the first partnership between both companies. Solent Freight Services Ltd., the largest trade-only airfreight wholesaler in the United States, bought the simulator for its Ecuador-based flight training facilities. The ALX will receive both FAA and EASA qualification certificates.
The Alsim ALX FSTD provides up to 4 classes of aircraft–from single engine piston, twin engine piston, twin turbine up to medium category twin jets (generic B737/A320). The device is designed and approved for ATPL, CPL/MCC and JOC in compliance with all current regulatory standards. The ALX offers advanced technology simulation equipment tailored to your specific training requirements. In addition, it has a proven track record for cost-effectiveness and helps save numerous aircraft hours.
Solent’s President Simon S. Milne explains his company’s choice: “After a very rigorous analysis of the simulator market worldwide, we chose the ALSIM ALX due to its wide variety of training aircraft models with a simple and smooth convertibility. This simulator is going to be a pioneer in the Latin American region and our project will be developed accordingly.”
Mr Nicolas de Lassus, Alsim’s Sales Account Manager, points out: “ALSIM is a leader in flight simulation for initial pilot training. We have recently opened an office in the US and in China as our business is tremendously increasing worldwide. We are glad to install our first ALX in South America and hope that this is the beginning of a great partnership between both companies. Our high-technology simulators will improve training quality and meet the market demand. With the ALX, Flying Pro Aviation Academy students will benefit from a state-of-the art simulator to enhance their chances to work in the best airline companies.”
