ALSIM, the global flight simulator manufacturer headquartered in France, announced its first sale in Russia. An ALSIM AL172 simulator has been delivered to S7 Aero and will be used for private pilots trainings at S7 Training. The AL172 is an exact replica of the Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk NAVIII. It features real Garmin G1000 NXI avionics and is equipped with the latest ALSIM VFR Visual System (VFRVS). The AL172, due to the unique ALSIM’s visual system matched to the accurate force feedback, provides students with the sense of motion in a fixed-base device. This immersion and depth perception allows the simulator to be used for even your most basic PPL training, cutting down time and costs required in an aircraft, in addition to instrument and other flight training. The AL172 was purchased with assistance from Mr Alexander Schaffler from Flight Simulator Trader (FST) in Germany.
Mikhail Lebedev, Director of S7 Training, said: “We have chosen the AL172 to cover our need in FNPT II simulator for the fleet of training aircrafts which currently consists of several Cessna 172S Nav III. Its reasonable price and quick availability led us to this choice. Having in mind ALSIM’s perfect reputation and also EASA certification, we’re sure the simulator will suit our needs.”
Audrey Jeffroy, ALSIM sales director added: “We are very pleased to welcome S7 Training as our first Russian customer and would like to thank Alexander Schaffler from FST who worked closely with us as a consultant for S7 Training.”
S7 Training is the largest aviation training center for flight personnel in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe. For five years S7 Training has been also providing ab-initio training for private pilots. At the moment it has several dozens of new trainees every year for this programme.
