Alsim has made its first sale in New Zealand to Ardmore Flying School, based in Auckland. The school has acquired an AL42 simulator, the exact replica of the Diamond DA42, built using genuine aircraft parts and equipped with the latest real-world Garmin G1000 avionics suite. It also comes with latest generation visual system, GFC 700 autopilot and PBN/LPV capabilities.

Ardmore Flying School and Ian Calvert, CEO, are excited about introducing the Alsim AL42 FNPTII into the operation: “Alsim was chosen for their attention to detail, fantastic and open communication and the quality of the equipment. The visuals provided allow for excellent handling training as well as the IFR procedures and combined with the full IOS gives scope to challenge trainee pilots to extend their capabilities and skills. The AL42 best represents the aircraft flown and will provide an excellent platform for our student cadet training.”
