Egnatia Aviation, based in Greece, has renewed their confidence in Alsim with an unprecedented order of six simulators: four AL250s and two cutting-edge Airliners. The first AL250 was installed in October, and three AL250s and the first Airliner will be installed in 2019. The final Airliner will complete their simulator fleet in 2020.
Egnatia Aviation is experiencing a huge growth spurt after signing contracts with Aegean Airlines, Wizzair and Iraqi Airways. They once again turned to Alsim to expand their modern fleet and state-of-the-art facilities. Having operated an Alsim ALX for over 10 years, which had been newly-released at the time, buying two Airliners pre-release is a testament to their faith in our products, making them the launch customer of the new model.
The Airliner has been designed to address medium to large ATOs needs for advanced training. Its competitive price and high training capabilities will maximize business opportunities and guarantee the best return of investment in this simulator category.
The AL250 is EASA-FNPT II (Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer) certified. It 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 Dimitris Lymperakis, Egnatia Aviation’s Director, explains the reason for choosing Alsim’s AL250 & Airliner: “The AL250 is a proven training device for the initial stage of the Commercial license, however, the “Airliner”, will boost our capacity and capability.”
Mr Jean-Paul Monnin, Alsim’s co-founder and CEO, commented, “It’s a great pleasure to continue our collaboration with Egnatia, which has lasted 10 years already since their purchase of the then newly released ALX. We congratulate Egnatia on this exciting expansion which is equally rewarding for us.”
