Passionate aviators behind this project

Owners of Mirus, an independent aircraft seats manufacturer based in Norfolk, U.K., Calvin Lau and his brother, William, are active and experienced licensed private pilots for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. Calvin and William are passionate Private pilots who engage in daily flights on their private Airbus AS350 and Robinson R66 Helicopters. Calvin also flies Cessna 172s and is working towards Multi and Instrument Rating qualifications.

Calvin Lau said: “We choose ALSIM SAS to provide this simulator after comparing many other similar devices for the purpose. We are excited and proud to take delivery of this high-quality simulator which will be the first one in Kuala Lumpur to provide such advanced training.”

With his firm conviction that high quality and realistic training in IFR is key to safe and competent flight operations, the owner has appointed a team of highly experienced airline pilots, led by Captain Siva Raman, to create a progressive syllabus of flight training. Captain Siva is a highly experienced Airline Pilot and Instructor who has clocked more than 35,000 flying hours in more than ten different types of Airline Jet and Turboprop aircraft including Boeing 747, 777 and 787 Dreamliner aircraft. He has also flown and instructed on more than fifty types of single and multi-engine General Aviation and Light Sport aircraft, and has sent more than five hundred pilots on their First Solo flights. He has trained pilots from all parts of the World ranging from China, Japan, India, Russia and the USA as a Commercial Flight Simulator Instructor.

Captain Siva stated: “This simulator will be made available to pilots who wish to equip themselves with skills provided by a comprehensive and professional flight training environment relating to 21st Century Aviation.”

“This is a great pleasure for ALSIM to welcome Charter Group Aero among our customers. We are looking forward to installing the simulator before this summer and to starting a fruitful cooperation between our two companies.” added Audrey Jeffroy, Alsim Sales Director.
