An Alsim AL172 simulator developed in 2017 as an exact replica of the Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk NAVIII has been installed at the Banyuwangi Pilot School in East Java, Indonesia.

Dedicated to PPL & IR training, the simulator features G1000 avionics and is equipped with Alsim’s High Definition Visual System. Head of Banyuwangi Pilot School Afen Sena hopes to use the simulator to achieve the school’s mission to meet the educational facilities and training requirements of pilots in accordance wiht the latest developments in science and technology.

Last year, the school also signed for an AL250 simulator, which became the first of its kind in the country.

The Banyuwangi Pilot School began operations towards the end of 2013 and has graduated around 100 students since. The school has grown rapidly and is currently catering to around 100 students.

Elsewhere, Alsim recently sold two AL250 FNPT II simulators to French pilot training school Astonfly.
