Nicholas Dunn, Managing Director, Aeros Flight Training

"We currently operate 3 DA42s across the group with FNPT II simulators but the new AL42 simulator is an exact replica of the DA42 which makes the transition to the aircraft seamless. We chose ALSIM because the company has an excellent reputation, awesome product and, from speaking to other ALSIM customers, a very good after-sales service."
