ALSIM announced the sale of an AL250 simulator to Calgary Flying Club in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, for its advanced training operations conducted by the Calgary Aviation College (“CFC”).
The ALSIM AL250 is a generic and compact simulator for single & multi engine piston (SEP/MEP reconfigurable) PPL, IR and CPL training. Calgary’s AL250 will use a real Garmin GTN650 and will be certified Level 2 and for IPCs by Transport Canada. With more than 40 installed worldwide, and a growing number in Canada and the United States, the AL250 is cost-effective and shows better mastery of flight maneuvers, procedures, and emergency procedures with students mastering topics faster. Calgary Flying Club trains their students in the Cessna 172 for single engine training and the Piper PA-34 Seneca for twin-engine training.
Bill Beaton, CEO at Calgary Flying Club, says, “After an extensive due diligence exercise, we very much look forward to our AL250 arriving in the fall. The AL250 was selected to complement our single engine and multi-engine fleet of 16 aircraft with advanced simulation capabilities. Real Garmin avionics, dual seats, several configurations and the latest in graphical renderings of our most used airports tilted our decision to ALSIM.”
