ALSIM has signed an agreement regarding the distribution of its AL42 flight simulators with AXAviation in China.

AXAviation has also purchased an AL42 FNPT II, becoming the first Chinese customer for the type. The device simulates the Diamond DA42 -VI with an Austro engine and GFC 700 digital autopilot. It will be level 5-certified.

Audrey Jeffroy, Sales Director for ALSIM, explained, “ALSIM is very pleased to begin this partnership with AXAviation, as developing our presence in China is one of our main targets for 2018.”

Located at Wuhu Aviation Industrial Park in Anhui Province, Anhui AXAviation Tech. Co., Ltd. was established in April 2016 as a private limited company with the objective of manufacturing and providing flight simulator training for both international and domestic airlines.

The company joined the Anhui General Aviation Association in January 2017 and became a member of the council. It also has a research and development centre located at Wuhu Aviation Industrial Park.

ALSIM signed a similar agreement with India’s Orient Flight School in early November.
