“The support we have received from ALSIM, for both our existing systems and acquisition of the new system, has been first class. We are very excited to be commissioning this new capability in Queensland Australia.”
The ALSR20 is the brand-new simulator manufactured by ALSIM and is the exact replica of the Cirrus SR20 aircraft. This Flight Training Device is certified FAA FTD Level 5 and is specifically designed for PPL and IR training needs. The device reproduces the Cirrus SR20 specific interior cockpit and flight deck and comes along with a Garmin GDU 1050A and GFC 700 Autopilot. The ALSR20 is equipped with a Garmin® GMA 350C® – All digital Audio Panel and a Garmin® GCU 479®. The device can also simulate the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System® (CAPS®).
Flight One has a long relationship with ALSIM that stretches back over a decade. Flight One declare “We have purchased two AL250 sims 18 months ago and have been very happy with the utility and reliability of these systems for use within our pilot training programs. We train approximately 100 new pilots to CPL/MEIR standard and aircraft owners to PPL.
We are an authorized Cirrus Training Centre with a fleet of Cirrus aircraft available for training within the Cirrus training program. The acquisition of an ALSR20 is a way to enhance our ability to safely and economically familiarise pilots with the extensive functionality offered by the Perspective Plus avionics system. The realism of the cockpit and the inclusion of a very convincing CAPS (parachute) emulation provides a very good facsimile of the real thing.”
Bob Tisdall, the Chairman of Flight One, said “The support we have received from ALSIM, for both our existing systems and acquisition of the new system, has been first class. We are very excited to be commissioning this new capability in Queensland Australia.”
Nicolas Fabriès, Sales Account Manager at ALSIM, adds: “We are extremely proud to bring our partnership with Flight One to the next level, with this ALSR20 simulator. The two AL250 simulators which were delivered two years ago have demonstrated their quality, fidelity, and high value for Flight One, and the addition of this new Cirrus SR20 simulator shows the close bounds and mutual trust between Flight One and ALSIM. Working with Bob Tisdall and the team at Flight One is always an absolute pleasure, and we are looking forward to pursuing our collaboration!”
