ALSIM is very pleased to announce the delivery and installation of an AL42 simulator to Leading Edge Aviation, an aviation academy located in Oxford, United Kingdom.

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

Mrs Anna Lezoray, ALSIM Sales Account Manager said: “It was a great pleasure to assist Leading Edge Aviation with their simulator purchase project. We are happy that AL42’s realism and its capability to reproduce different scenarios and flying conditions, will enhance the training syllabus at Leading Edge.”

Andy McFarlane, Leading Edge CEO, said: “We want our student pilots to receive the most advanced training possible. Along with interactive learning aids, virtual reality and neuro training, they will also benefit from the most advanced simulator technology as they prepare for their future career. The AL42 from ALSIM offers sophisticated training capabilities and replicates the aircraft our students fly, making it the obvious choice for our latest acquisition.”
