Alsim is very pleased to announce their client, flight academy Fly-In-Spain, acquired the first AL250 flight simulator to be installed in Spain. Fly-in-Spain benefited from the Alsim buyback offer, which was created by the manufacturer to allow customers to update their fleet with last generation simulators.
The AL250 contains the best, state-of-the-art technology and is EASA-FNPT II (Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer) certified. It addresses initial phase training needs (PPL, CPL, IR/ME) and is SEP/MEP re-configurable. In addition, it offers both classic and glass cockpit instrumentation for each flight model at the simple flick of a switch.
Mr Hans Nerlinger, the Senior General Manager of Fly-in-Spain – Flight Training Centre Jerez, explains the reasons why they chose Alsim’s AL250, “We chose the AL250 because it’s LPV/PBN approved (Performance Based Navigation) which is, according to the new EASA regulation for Instrument Training (IR), a mandatory requirement.” He adds: “The second important factor for us is that the aircraft models provided with the AL250, can be easily changed, with no required hardware changes, as this switch is only software based. Which means the simulator’s instructor can propose analogue or glass-cockpit panels, depending on the student’s specific training needs.”
Mr Nicolas de Lassus, Alsim’s Sales Manager, emphasizes, “It’s a great pleasure to work with Fly-in-Spain again, who has been our client for over 10 years, and we’re delighted they renewed their trust in our brand. This AL250 is the first of its kind in Spain among the many other Alsim devices installed in this country.”
Fly-in-Spain Group is an association of partners providing an optimal, integrated service for commercial and private flight training, under EASA regulation. The school has a significant fleet of Cessna 172, 152, 150, Piper PA 28 and Piper Seneca. Fly-In-Spain also has an Alsim AL100 flight simulator. Fly-in-Spain offers PPL, ME, IR, MEIR, CPL and ATPL flight training as well as flight instructor training to European and worldwide customers. More than 200 pilots are trained and examined every year in the school.
Fly-in-Spain flight training center Jerez is also certified for new PBN-training which they will be able to provide now using the new Alsim AL250 simulator. Students will benefit from the new glass-cockpit layout of the AL250: it can simulate various aircraft models, analogue or glass-cockpit.
