One Air claims Spanish training top spot after choosing AL42
One Air has been putting its Alsim ALX to good use for a number of years, and when it sought a device that could accurately recreate the Diamond DA42 with genuine parts, the decision became a straightforward one.
The AL42 FTSD is a replica of the Diamond DA42 flightdeck.

Malaga-based One Air has become the first Spanish customer to purchase an AL42 FSTD from Alsim. An approved flight training centre and long-term Alsim customer, One Air has acquired the device to replicate its fleet of DA42 twin-engine training aircraft. Together with its Alsim ALX FNPT II, which is certified for MCC, medium jet, multi-engine piston, single-engine piston and PBN training, the latest simulator makes One Air the school with the largest number of next generation Alsim FNPT II simulators in Spain.

The AL42 FSTD is an exact replica of the Diamond DA42, built using genuine aircraft parts and equipped with the latest real-world Garmin G1000 avionics suite. It comes with Alsim's high definition visual system, electronic force feedback on three axes, GFC 700 autopilot capabilities, active circuit breakers, de-ice system panel and a semi-enclosed instructor station. The device is designed and approved for CPL, ME-IR and PPL training in compliance with all current regulatory standards.

One Air group director Agustín Cabanillas comments: “As most airlines do, we have trusted the same aircraft manufacturer for our large fleet of Diamond DA20-C1 and DA40 single-engine and DA42 twin-engine aircraft. For us, it is a breakthrough to improve the safety and understanding of flight procedures, minimising human error by teaching parts of the instrumental phase (IR) and other courses in a simulator such as the Alsim AL42. We consider the device a complement for better training and standardisation.”

Sales account manager Nicolas de Lassus adds: “We are very glad to continue our partnership with One Air thanks to this new AL42 simulator acquisition. One Air already owns an ALX device which it has been using successfully for its IR and MCC training. With the AL42, it will increase its capacity and continue to offer state-of-the-art training to its students. We have almost 18 devices installed in Spain already and we would like to continue participating in our clients' development by offering reliable and performing devices which exactly meet their needs.”
