ALSIM is celebrating the milestone of its 100th ALX simulator sale.
The France-based company introduced the ALX sim in 2008. It was different from its previous products: Rather than a type specific simulator, the ALX combined various aircraft types into one single simulator.
The idea was to create a training tool to provide skills for a wide range of aircraft ranging from single piston, twin piston, twin turbine, and medium category twin jet, according to company officials.
“The principle involved is to have students trained to the logic and procedures common to each class of aircraft,” they explained.
Since its creation, 100 ALXs have been sold in 44 countries around the world. The very first ALX ever produced was purchased by UK based CRM Aviation, and it is still in operation today.
“We initially chose the ALSIM ALX as it offered the perfect platform to deliver MCC training,” said Rob Howarth, CEO of CRM Aviation. “To this day, it is still an exceptional tool for teaching the non-technical competency requirements of the MCC course. We find our customers are able to focus on the core non-technical competencies of MCC rather than become bogged down in complex type operation.”
ALSIM has been developing and manufacturing FAA and EASA certified flight simulators since 1994. Today the company has more than 400 certified flight devices installed with 350 clients worldwide in more than 50 countries.
