Astonfly, a flight training school located in Toussus-le-Noble near Paris, has purchased a AL250 FNPT II simulator from Alsim, its third in 12 months. Delivery is expected to be early 2019.
The EASA and FAA certified AL250 simulator was originally developed in 2016. The compact FNPT II version addresses initial phase training needs such as PPL, CPL and IR/ME, and is SEP/MEP re-configurable. In addition it offers both classic and glass cockpit instrumentation for each flight model at the simple flick of a switch.
Astonfly president Charles Clair explains his purchase of another simulator: “We are very satisfied with the quality of the AL250 we bought a few months ago. Alsim offers great after-sales service so we decided to renew our confidence in the company. Our business is increasing in a significant manner and we need to invest to continue meeting the demand.”
Astonfly plans on welcoming 120 students per year in the near future and apart from significant investments in new buildings it is also going to increase its fleet with 13 more aircraft over the next few months.
Alsim sales director Audrey Jeffroy adds: “We are exceedingly proud to provide Astonfly with its third AL250 in less than 12 months. The school only started working with us at the start of this year so this is a real mark of its trust in Alsim, not only in our device but also in our after-sales service.” The company has installed nearly 30 such simulators worldwide to date.
