ALSIM Simulators announced that TEAM Aviation, part of Cirrus Aircraft flight training in Australia, has purchased the ALSIM ALSR20. The ALSR20, which will be the first of its kind to be installed in the Asia-Pacific region, will be a key element of TEAM Aviation’s flight training solution for Cirrus pilots across Australia.
The ALSR20 is a new simulator manufactured by ALSIM and is a replica of the Cirrus SR20 aircraft. This Flight Training Device (FTD) Level 5 is specifically designed for PPL and IR training 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).
Alyce Johnson, Founder and Chief Pilot at TEAM Aviation said: “We founded TEAM Aviation with one clear vision. We wanted to provide people with access to private aviation in a safe and secure way. We wanted to give people (who we call our TEAM Members) the ability to access the latest Cirrus SR series aircraft and enjoy the life that comes with private air travel. After a thorough market research, it became clear that the ALSIM ALSR20 was the only solution to allow us to provide flight training as part of an integrated flight training solution for TEAM members. We demand quality and safety in everything that we do, and it is embedded in our values and brand. Our ALSIM ALSR20 isn’t just a piece of kit that is for instrument rated senior pilots, it is for every single TEAM Member from Day 1 through to their retirement. It is integrated into every single flight and will form an essential piece of our training solution.”
Nicolas Fabriès, Sales Account Manager at ALSIM declared: “We are very pleased to work with TEAM Aviation and to launch the first ALSR20 into the Australasian market. Both companies have a very strong belief regarding the necessity of high-quality equipment that utilises the latest technology to train professional pilots and we couldn’t be happier to work with a partner that is building innovative solutions in pilot training”.
