Aeronav opts for Alsim to help boost training capabilities

Posted 24 April 2017 · Add Comment

South African training academy Aeronav has bought an ALX Light Turboprop simulator from manufacturer Alsim.


The Lanseria-based school that has students from across Africa and the Middle East says it has seen an increasing trend to make maximum use of simulators in flight training and testing and saw it needed to offer simulator training to complement tits theory and flight training and to extend the training offer to include advanced topics such as RNAV and TCAS.
To meet this demand, the flight school considered several FSTD manufacturers and eventually chose Alsim and its ALX flight simulator.
Aeronav’s managing director Donald O’Connor, said: “The ALX can be configured for different uses, from single engine aeroplanes for early training such as for the night rating, to advanced training such as MCC and radar, in the light turboprop twin. Panel layout is consistent with modern design and emphasis on “glass cockpit” -as in our DA42- and graphics, control feel and response are amazingly realistic.
“Certification and acceptance by leading aviation authorities such as EASA and the FAA make it acceptable for the widest range of our international students. And, last but not least, Alsim is well-known for its progressive improvement in its technology and strong user support.”
