Fly-In-Spain has acquired the first Alsim AL250 flight simulator to be installed in Spain. The company benefited from the Alsim buyback offer, which was created by the manufacturer to allow customers to update their fleet with the latest generation of simulators.

The AL250 is EASA-FNPT II (Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer) certified and 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.

Mr Hans Nerlinger, senior General Manager of Fly-in-Spain - Flight Training Centre Jerez, explained the reasons why they chose Alsim's AL250: "We chose the AL250 because it's LPV/PBN approved which is, according to the new EASA regulation for Instrument Training, a mandatory requirement. The second important factor for us is that the aircraft models provided with the AL250 can be easily changed, with no required hardware changes, as this switch is only software based. Which means the simulator's instructor can propose analogue or glass-cockpit panels, depending on the student's specific training needs."
