43 Airschool brings fifth Alsim 250 onboard
Despite the disruption currently being experienced, 43 Airschool is experiencing an even bigger need for simulation training. It has trusted Alsim for a quarter of a century, and didn't hesitate in selecting an AL250.
There is a renewed interest in learning to fly in South Africa.
Read this story in our August 2020 printed issue.

43 Airschool, a flight training organisation catering to the private, general, commercial, airline and military sectors and located in South Africa, is acquiring an Alsim AL250 flight simulator.

The AL250 simulator addresses initial phase training needs (PPL, CPL, IR/ME), is SEP/MEP re-configurable and is certified as an EASA FNPT II. 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 operation worldwide.

Attie Niemann, 43 Air school's CEO and MD, explains the reasons why he chose the Alsim AL250: “Our need for simulator training keeps expanding, despite the disruption currently being experienced. We see an even bigger need for simulation for training and have had a longstanding relationship and experience with Alsim as we operate four of these devices already at our Port Alfred, South Africa campus and have had excellent service and reliability over the past 25 years of using Alsim products.”

Nicolas de Lassus, Alsim's sales manager, adds: “We would like to thank 43 Airschool for its trust. During the lockdown period resulting from the worldwide pandemic, it was important to help customers and keep answering their needs. Even if we have to assume a very tough period ahead, we believe that this new acquisition will enhance training quality and bring hope to all those future pilots who want to achieve their dream. Alsim and 43 Airschool have worked together for years and both have already recovered from many crises. We look forward to continuing this successful cooperation between our companies.”
