ALSIM, the 24-year-old global flight simulator manufacturer, announced their newest and largest flight training device to date, ‘The Airliner,’ at the World Airline Training Summit (WATS) in Orlando, Florida. Developed for advanced airline pilot training programs at high-end flight schools and training centers, the Airliner is a multipurpose hybrid simulator with two configurations representative of Airbus and Boeing transport category airplanes, the airline industry’s most dominant fleets.
“With the increasing industry pressure to produce airline pilots due to the growing global pilot shortage, airline pilots entering the market will likely be in the Airbus A320 and/or Boeing 737. ALSIM hybrid technology meets that need, giving pilots representative experience in these two major fleet types and operational philosophies early in their careers. Moreover, the ALSIM Airline model improves pilot preparation for transport category type ratings and airline selection alike,” according to ALSIM.
The ALSIM Airline simulator was engineered in response to regulatory requirements, expert analysis, and 1000s of hours of customer feedback from ALX Medium Jet simulator operators. It provides medium and large Approved Training Organizations (ATOs) the ability to provide valuable experience in Airbus and Boeing operations, as well as provide other training to include the Advanced Pilot Standard Multi Crew Coordination (APS MCC), Jet Orientation Courses, Airline Selection (preparation and skill tests) and modernized Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT).
The ALSIM Airliner’s advanced UPRT capabilities are being developed in partnership with Aviation Performance Solutions (APS), the global leader in integrated on-aircraft and advanced simulator UPRT. The ALSIM Airline’s all-new industry-leading UPRT Instructor Operating Station (IOS) provides an intuitive interface and will meet and exceed technical guidance issued by the ICAO Doc 10011: Manual on Aeroplane UPRT and the FAA’s National Simulator Program. This all-new development will give instructors a powerful and informative technology tool to deliver highly effective UPRT instruction that maximizes the transfer of UPRT knowledge and skill from flight simulator to real-world operations, while at the same time eliminating the risk of negative training.
Timed to give the business jet and airline industry the robust tools it needs to economically address forthcoming UPRT mandates to ICAO member states in simulation, the APS-ALSIM UPRT IOS advancement will help pilots around the globe bring everyone home safely.
