Cirrus Aircraft has acquired a new ALSIM SR20 Advanced Aviation Training Device simulator for its new flight training operation in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is Cirrus Aircraft’s second ALSIM device for the SR20, with the company currently operating an ALSIM SR FTD at its Vision Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. The new SR20 AATD is a training replica of the Cirrus Aircraft G6 SR Series aircraft. It is equipped with Garmin Perspective+, Garmin GDU 1050A, and GFC 700 Autopilot. Additionally, customers can practice deploying the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System. The new simulator acquisition comes just over one year after Cirrus Aircraft and ALSIM announced its first acquisition of the SR flight simulator.

Dr. Scott Firsing of ALSIM’s North America office commented: “It has been a pleasure working with the various members of the Cirrus Aircraft team over the past 18 months. They have provided comprehensive feedback on the SR FTD in Knoxville, to make it the most realistic device possible. In fact, it has been great to work with all Cirrus Aircraft Flight Training and Cirrus Training Centers from around the world that have recently purchased ALSIM’s SR range. This includes flight training organisations from Australia, China, Germany, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States.”

Rob Haig, Cirrus Aircraft’s Chief Pilot and VP of Flight Operations said: “Our instructors had extensive time testing the ALSIM SR AATD while the simulator was at our booth during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh and Cirrus CX. This, and having used our FTD in Knoxville and working with the ALSIM team in general, made the AATD purchase a logical choice for our Scottsdale Flight Training operation.” 

Over the coming months, ALSIM will add the Cirrus SR22 and SR22T flight models to both SR simulators to help meet Cirrus Aircraft’s global training demand.
