Alsim has sold an ALX SEP-MEP flight simulator to the University of Kyrenia in Cyprus which will be used by the Faculty of Aviation and Space Sciences.

The ALX simulator will provide the University with access to the latest technological advances, including Alsim's High Definition Visual System.

The University of Kyrenia has also decided to make use of Alsim’s simulator operator service, which will see Alsim operate the FSTD according to EASA applicable standards and take responsibility for the overall qualification and compliance monitoring.

This way, Alsim says the University will be able to focus on its training rather than managing the compliance of its device, which will help save time and money.

Captain Koray Yilmaz, Head of Simulator Training at the University of Kyrenia, explained, “We believe that attention to detail is of paramount importance when it comes to pilot training. Dedicated to training safe and competent pilots, we aim to make adequate equipment readily available for our students throughout their training.

“Consequently, Alsim’s ALX was the optimum choice due to its technical and operational capabilities. The reliability of the device together with the remote support services offered by Alsim will inevitably provide trouble-free training opportunities for our students,” Yilmaz continued.

The contract marks the beginning of a new relationship between the two entities.

The news comes shortly after the announcements of Alsim's sale of an ALX simulator to OMNI Aviation Group.
