ALSIM has announced the sale of a refurbished AL200 MCC simulator to Montair Aviation, a flight training school located in Pitt Meadows, B.C. This will be Montair’s second AL200.
Due to its generic configuration, the AL200 can be easily reconfigured to simulate a wide range of aircraft training, making it a crucial part of Montair’s Integrated airline transport pilot licence (IATPL) course. The course has trained hundreds of pilots that now fly for airlines around the world.
Montair Aviation’s director of flight operations, Blair Parrant, said: “We are pleased to add our second ALSIM AL200 MCC to our fleet of simulators! With the current pilot recruitment demands, being able to provide high quality, efficient simulation training is a must. After our first AL200-MCC purchase in April 2016, our team knew when it came time to acquiring an additional simulator we wanted it to be another ALSIM. Its simplified instructor control unit, highly realistic flight control functions, and diverse fleet selection make this unit a great addition for our team”.
The AL200 is scheduled to be delivered early next year, prior to the start of Montair’s next IATPL in April 2018.
