The ATO Cannes Aviation Academy, located in the South of France, renews its confidence in ALSIM in acquiring a second simulator, an AL42.

The AL42 is the exact replica of the Diamond DA42, built using genuine aircraft parts and equipped with the latest real-world Garmin G1000 avionics suite. It also comes with latest generation visual system, GFC 700 autopilot and PBN/LPV capabilities.

“Given our forecasts, the need for a second FNPT2 simulator was certain. We naturally turned to the ALSIM AL42, which is a very representative simulator of the Diamond DA42 twin-engine we use. We have been working with ALSIM for nearly 15 years and we know the reliability of their simulators and the high availability of their after-sales service” explains Mathieu Di Costanzo, General Manager for Cannes Aviation.

“ALSIM and Cannes Aviation have been collaborating for years. We are very pleased that they chose Alsim again and would like to thank them for their confidence. We look forward to continuing this successful cooperation between our companies.” adds Audrey Jeffroy, Sales Director for Alsim.
