Tom's Aviation tries Alsim's AL172

"We've been using this FTD for the last 3 months now and it's incredible! It is very helpful to the cadet in preparing their flight activity, especially on Garmin G1000® NXi navigation. Amazingly, the visual system for VFR and navigating PBN is really smooth in changing weather phenomena. The instructor panel system allows smooth changes like a FSS and is user-friendly for a beginning FTD Instructor. Thanks for that's a great machine!"
