The Colombian flight school Escuela de Aviación Flying is acquiring an AL250 flight simulator from Alsim, which will become Alsim's first device to be installed in Latin America. The AL250 is FAA AATD (advanced aviation training device) and EASA-FNPT (flight navigation procedures trainer) certified.
The AL250 simulator addresses initial phase training needs (PPL, CPL, IR/ME) and is SEP/MEP re-configurable. In addition, it offers both classic and glass cockpit instrumentation for each flight model at the simple flick of a switch.
Captain Fabio Montoya, Escuela de Aviacion Flying's managing director explained the reasons why they chose Alsim's AL250: "we are proud to have a compact simulator, approved to accurately simulate PBN/LNAV, LNAV/VNAV and LPV (localizer performance with vertical guidance) operations. Keeping into account the current needs of the industry and the constant development of the world's air navigation, the AL250 is re-configurable for single or multi-engine aircraft, analogue or electronic instruments (EFIS) and last generation software."
