ALSIM is happy to celebrate the milestone of its 100th ALX simulator sale.
It was in 2008 that we presented a new and innovative training concept that combined various aircraft types in one single simulator, the ALSIM ALX. This was no accident.
The purpose of this simulator, in contrary to our type specific devices, is to act as a training tool to provide skills for a wide range of aircraft: single piston, twin piston, twin turbine and medium category twin jet. The principle involved is to have students trained to the logic and procedures common to each class of aircraft.
Since 2008, the ALX has evolved as technology and training has evolved, enabling us to offer our customers an advanced, up to date, end-to-end turnkey solution. This has been possible due to our development process being designed on an open platform, giving us the flexibility to evolve and branch out from the original blueprint.
Since its creation, 100 ALXs have been sold in 44 countries around the world. The very first ALX ever produced was purchased by UK based CRM Aviation, and it is still in operation today. Rob Howarth, CEO of CRM Aviation recalls: “We initially chose the ALSIM ALX as it offered the perfect platform to deliver MCC training. To this day, it is still an exceptional tool for teaching the non-technical competency requirements of the MCC course. We find our customers are able to focus on the core non-technical competencies of MCC rather than become bogged down in complex type operation.”
“Our annual usage is nearly 2000 hours and our ‘in serviceability’ times are pretty much 100%. The ALSIM ALX is a great product that the CRM Aviation instructional team have enjoyed training our customers with.” adds Rob Howarth.
For Jean-Paul Monnin, CEO of ALSIM, “ALSIM has been known for providing advanced, innovative simulators and services in the simulation field. This 100th ALX delivery is an important milestone for the company as it proves that our concept keeps attracting customers. But even more significantly, our greatest achievement is to see how our customers remain satisfied with their ALX and keep using it thanks to the ALSIM’s reliability, upgradeability and versatility.
