Nicolas De Lassus, sales account manager at ALSIM, said “We are pleased to welcome Cirrus South Africa in the ALSIM family. Adding an ALSR20 will enable them to provide higher quality for their simulator training courses. Thank you once again Tony and the Cirrus South Africa team for their trust, we hope it is the beginning of a long-term relationship between both our companies.”
