Alsim is strengthening its presence in Germany as School4Pilots GmbH, based in Hannover, Germany, has acquired an Alsim ALSR20 simulator.
The ALSR20 is the new simulator manufactured by Alsim and is the exact replica of the Cirrus SR20 aircraft. This Flight Training Device (FTD) Level 5 is designed for Private Pilot License (PPL) and instrument rating (IR) needs. The device reproduces the Cirrus SR20-specific interior cockpit and flight deck and comes along with a Garmin GDU 1050A and GFC 700 Autopilot. The ALSR20 is equipped with a Garmin GMA 350C – all digital Audio Panel and a Garmin GCU 479. The device can also simulate the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS).
Ulf Meckbach, CEO at School4Pilots GmbH, declared: “After we decided to include a brand-new Cirrus SR20 G6 as a charter and IFR training aircraft, it quickly became clear that we wanted to use the Alsim ALSR20 simulator as an addition to our aircraft fleet. The combined use of a real aircraft and the identical EASA-certified simulator (ALSR20) ensures that customers can train in any situation under realistic conditions, regardless of the weather.
“The management of School4Pilots GmbH is so convinced of the simulator that a separate simulator building is being built for it. School4Pilots customers are already looking forward to being able to complete the first flight lessons on the youngest member of the fleet in 2022.”
