Warsaw-based flight academy Ventum Air recently decided to purchase an ALSIM AL250 FSTD for their IR/ME training curriculum. The private school operates a fleet of single-engine PS-28 Cruisers and Cessna 172s as well as twin-engine Tecnam P2006 aircraft equipped with EFIS instrumentation.

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.

Mr Maciej Gaweda, Accountable Manager with Ventum Air, explains why the AL250 is a perfect match for his company: “We are very happy that we finally decided to buy an ALSIM product. Due to the high demand for pilots and the increasing amount of students at our flight academy, we took the decision to invest in a second FNPT II simulator. After some research on the current market the choice quickly became obvious: only the ALSIM AL250 simulator would meet our expectations and perfectly match our modular ME/IR/CPL training program. ALSIM has been a well-known simulator manufacturer for years and the company was one of the first to offer their products with PBN capabilities. This option was one of the key factors for our decision due to the new IR procedures which will be mandatory by 2020.”

Anna Lezoray, Sales Account Manager with ALSIM, is proud to count Ventum among ALSIM’s new customers: “The sale of an AL250 to Ventum Air Flight Academy is the crowning achievement of a long-term acquaintance between ALSIM and Ventum Air. It also demonstrates the constantly increasing need for quality pilot training in Poland and Central Europe in general. We are very pleased to participate in the strengthening of Ventum Air’s position in the international pilot training market with our AL250.”
