EuroPilot Center has chosen an Alsim AL42 FSTD for the ATO’s premises in Antwerp, Belgium. The device will be used in the school’s brand-new Integrated Airline Career Program in which it will fill the gap between the single-engine instrument training and the multi-engine conversion on the Diamond DA42s operated by EPC. The ATO also intends to use the device for IR skill tests and proficiency checks as well as G1000 NXi avionics and systems training.

The Alsim AL42 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 (HDVS), electronic force feedback on 3 axes, GFC 700 or KAP140 autopilot capabilities, active circuit breakers, de-ice system panel, and a semi-enclosed instructor station. The device is designed and approved for CPL IR/ME and PPL training in compliance with all current regulatory standards.

Mr Kay Vereeken, CEO and Head of Training at EPC, explains why the Alsim AL42 is a perfect match for their new program: “The decision to invest in a DA42 simulator was taken with the purpose to optimize the multi-engine phase of the EuroPilot Center Airline Career Program. We were looking for an almost 100 % replica of the real DA42 with the latest real Garmin G1000 NXi units and the GFC700 Automatic Flight Control System. The device should have little to no downtime and a reliable track record. EASA FNPT II qualification should be guaranteed and ease of performing the quarterly QTG tests automatically was an important factor, too. What finally convinced us was the positive feedback from CAAs and other Alsim customers.”

Anna Lezoray, Sales Account Manager with Alsim, is pleased to partner up with such a renowned flight school as EPC: “We are excited to welcome EuroPilot Center between our customers. It is very rewarding to know, that such an experienced as well-established school on the training market as EuroPilot Center choses the realism, quality and reliability of Alsim devices. This is a great beginning of a long and fruitful cooperation between our two companies."

EuroPilot Center is an Approved Training Organization with a campus in Antwerp (Belgium) founded in 2007 and Palm Springs California (USA) founded in 2015, offering a complete series of EASA and FAA pilot training courses, ranging from Private Pilot level up to Commercial/ATP, Flight Instructor/CFI etc.

Uniquely, the new Campus in California called SoCal Pilot Center is providing both EASA and FAA Part 141 training on US soil and is 100 % owned by EuroPilot Center. The school is staffed with full-time Belgian Flight Instructors and guarantees the highest quality standards in flight training. All facilities, including luxurious student housing, are an integral part of the organization. The US branch is also part of the Textron Aviation Cessna Pilot Center Network since 2016 and has been approved by CATS/PSI as an FAA Testing Center.

EuroPilot Center currently trains on average 30 airline pilots a year, of which around 75% are destined for the European market and 25% for the American one. EPC Alumni find jobs with airlines such as Brussels Airlines, TUIfly, ASL Belgium, Germanwings, Ryanair, almost immediately after completion of the Airline Career Program.
