Wednesday, August 14th, 2019 – ALSIM is excited to announce the sale of an AL250 simulator to Calgary Flying Club in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for its advanced training operations conducted by the Calgary Aviation College (“CFC”).
The ALSIM AL250 is a generic and compact simulator for single & multi engine piston (SEP/MEP reconfigurable) PPL, IR and CPL training. Calgary’s AL250 will use a real Garmin GTN650 and will be certified Level 2 and for IPCs by Transport Canada. With more than 40 installed worldwide, and a growing number in Canada and the United States, the AL250 is proven to be cost-effective and clearly shows markedly better mastery of flight maneuvers, procedures, and emergency procedures with students mastering topics faster. Calgary Flying Club trains their students in the Cessna 172 for single engine training and the Piper PA-34 Seneca for twin engine training. The Club, which has a year-round ground school that starts every nine weeks, is nestled in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies and only a short drive from Banff National Park. Calgary also offers its Members rental aircraft, re-current training, hangar facilities and events.
Bill Beaton, CEO at Calgary Flying Club, says, “After an extensive due diligence exercise, we very much look forward to our AL250 arriving in the Fall. The AL250 was selected to complement our single engine and multi-engine fleet of 16 aircraft with advanced simulation capabilities. Real Garmin avionics, dual seats, several configurations and the latest in graphical renderings of our most used airports tilted our decision to Alsim. The control feel of the simulator and its graphics gives our student pilots the most real-world achievable flying while on the ground. We look forward to the ease of use, reliability and latest technology for our regulated flight training from Alsim.”
