Alsim is very pleased to announce the sale of two AL250 FNPT II simulators, to Astonfly, a flight training school located in Toussus-le-Noble, near Paris, France. The simulators will be delivered early in 2018.

The EASA & FAA certified AL250 simulator was developed by Alsim in 2016 in response to a strong market demand. This compact FNPT II 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. This device has been extremely well received since its creation and about 18 of these have already been sold and are in successful operation worldwide.

Mr Charles Clair, Astonfly’s President, explains the reasons why they chose Alsim’s AL250, “This device fits our needs exactly for glass cockpit training in our Integrated Airline Pilot Course.”

Mrs Audrey Jeffroy, Alsim’s Sales Director, emphasizes, “We are proud to welcome Astonfly among our customers, this is a well-known flight school that enjoys a very solid reputation in France and abroad. They are also currently expanding and we are delighted to begin a successful cooperation between our two companies.”
