AL42 UPGRADE FOR AYJET IN TURKEY
Le Loroux Bottereau, France – Long-term Alsim customer AYJET Anatolian Stars Flight School recently decided to task ALSIM with an upgrade of their existing Alsim simulator to the newest EASA standards. The ATO based in Istanbul, Turkey, operates a fleet of single and multi-engine aircraft by Austrian manufacturer Diamond Aircraft, as well as three simulators, one of them being an Alsim AL200-DA42 bought 10 years ago. To make this device meet the current standards as outlines in CS-FSTD (A), Alsim will provide a new visual system with detailed airport models, a new flight model as well as a G1000 firmware update allowing for GNSS approaches.
The ALSIM AL42 is an exact replica of the Diamond DA42, built using genuine aircraft parts and equipped with the latest real-world Garmin G1000 avionics suite. It comes with Alsim’s High Definition Visual System (HDVS), electronic force feedback on 3 axes, GFC 700 or KAP140 autopilot capabilities, active circuit breakers, de-ice system panel, and a semi-enclosed instructor station. The device is designed and approved for CPL IR/ME and PPL training in compliance with all current regulatory standards.
Mr Orkun Özdelice, FSTD Technical Responsible with AYJET, explains why his school chose Alsim to upgrade their device: “We decided to upgrade our Alsim AL200-DA42 simulator to increase the overall quality of the device and to meet the new regulatory requirements. Being able to train GNSS LPV approaches was another key factor that Alsim offered us.”
Isabelle Thébault, After Sales Services Coordinator with Alsim, added: “It is a good thing for this long-standing customer to upgrade their Alsim AL200-DA42 sim to the new EASA standards, which enables them to continue providing up-to-date first-class training. At the same time it shows Alsim’s commitment to our customers even long after the sales process, rejecting the notion of planned obsolescence.”
