ACS Flight Training, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cloud Global Group Ltd, has signed a contract regarding the purchase of an AL42 flight simulator – an exact copy of the Diamond DA42 – from Alsim.

The contract was signed at AeroExpo UK, which took place at Wycombe Air Park from 1-3 June 2017. The purchase signifies the implementation of ACS Flight Training’s new business plan, which includes the acquisition of a DA42 Twinstar aircraft.

The ATO also wanted to comply with new EASA requirements such as LPV approach training and the demand for more ‘airline orientated pilots’ with glass cockpit training.

ACS Aviation is based at Perth Airport, the hub of general aviation in Scotland, located centrally between Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow.
