ALSIM announced the delivery and installation of an AL42 simulator to Leading Edge Aviation, an aviation academy located in Oxford, United Kingdom.

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 latest generation visual system, GFC 700 autopilot and PBN/LPV capabilities.

Mrs Anna Lezoray, ALSIM Sales Account Manager said: “It was a great pleasure to assist Leading Edge Aviation with their simulator purchase project. We are happy that AL42's realism and its capability to reproduce different scenarios and flying conditions, will enhance the training syllabus at Leading Edge.”

Andy McFarlane, Leading Edge CEO, said: "We want our student pilots to receive the most advanced training possible. Along with interactive learning aids, virtual reality and neuro training, they will also benefit from the most advanced simulator technology as they prepare for their future career. The AL42 from ALSIM offers sophisticated training capabilities and replicates the aircraft our students fly, making it the obvious choice for our latest acquisition.”

Created by a team with more than 200 years of combined experience in the industry, Leading Edge Aviation is a new EASA pilot training academy with a fresh approach and an emphasis on developing the whole pilot.

Leading Edge Aviation delivers integrated and modular programmes that take students from zero hours to commercially qualified at their base at London Oxford Airport. Graduates complete the final stage of airline preparation training in partnership with VA Airline Training in Cambridge.

The Aviation Academy delivers the highest standards of regulatory training while also developing the non-technical skills that airlines require through a programme of professional and personal development seminars and individual mentoring.

Leading Edge students receive the most advanced training possible. Interactive learning aids, virtual and mixed reality tech and neuro training approaches are used throughout the programmes to embed and refine new knowledge and skills, creating mature, accomplished pilots, who are truly ready for airline type training.
