Alpha Aviation Group, a Philippines aviation training solutions school, have purchased an ALSIM AL172 flight simulator.

The AL172 is an exact replica of the Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk NAVIII. Equipped with the ALSIM High Definition Visual System (HDVS), it features Garmin G1000 NXI avionics. The AL172, due to the HDVS, provides students with the sense of motion in a fixed-base device.

The simulator can cater for the most basic PPL training because of the immersion and depth perception, ALSIM said. It cuts down time and costs required in an aircraft, in addition to instrument and other flight training.

Alpha Aviation Group, based in Pampanga, specializes in cadet assessment and selection, type ratings and flagship ab-initio cadet programs. It also has the only EASA-certified Level D Airbus A320 Full Flight Simulator in its Philippine platform.
