Alberta, Canada-based Springbank Air Training College (SATC) has purchased an AL200 simulator from Alsim to train its 200+ students at Springbank Airport.

Talking about the order, SATC’s President Jayme Hepfner said, “With the increased demand for pilots, it’s becoming more important to utilise advanced simulation to provide the necessary training to meet the standards of the airline industry, such as with our WestJet partnership.”

As one of WestJet’s official Flight Training Partners, Springbank Air offers a career path through WestJet’s Flightpath programme. Through the programme, flight instructors are offered opportunities to engage in various training platforms including Crew Resource Management (CRM) classes and simulator training sessions.

Other Canadian flight schools that have purchased an ALSIM simulator include Journey Air and Montair Aviation.
