ALSIM is proud to announce that Kanata Aviation Training has bought an ALSIM AL250 simulator. Based at High River Airport in Alberta, Canada, this will be their first ALSIM device.

The AL250 simulator addresses initial phase training needs (PPL, CPL, IR/ME) and is SEP/MEP re-configurable simulator certified as an EASA FNPT II and TC Level 2 IPC. In addition, it offers both classic and glass cockpit instrumentation for each flight model at the simple flick of a switch. This device has been extremely well received since its creation and more than 65 of these have already been installed and are in successful operation worldwide.

“The addition of the ALSIM AL250 will make a significant contribution to our students and the provision we offer, together with continuing our goal of providing consistent and quality training. We have invested in modern training aircraft using the Diamond DA20 and we see the ALSIM AL250 as the frontrunning simulator to compliment our fleet. The ALSIM will not only support our initial training provision but will be extensively underpin our IFR and multi IFR programs. The installation is set to coincide with the opening of our new purpose-built facility at the High River Airport and we are naturally very excited.” according to Gigi Shamba, Chief Flight Instructor of Kanata Aviation Training.

Dr Scott Firsing of ALSIM’s North America office adds: “We are pleased to welcome Kanata Aviation Training to the ALSIM family. The new AL250 simulator will help provide consistency and quality in their training. We are excited to see the superb pilots Kanata produces.”
