Luxembourg Flight Training Academy has acquired two of ALSIM advanced simulators, the AIRLINER, and the AL250. These next-generation simulators will enhance the training experience for students and prepare them for real-world aviation challenges. The AL250 simulator meets initial phase training needs (PPL, CPL, IR/ME) and is certified EASA FNPT II. In addition, it offers both classic and glass cockpit instrumentation. Since its introduction, this device has been having a lot of success in the pilot training market.  Over 80 simulators have already been installed and are successfully being operated worldwide.

The AIRLINER is a simulator catering for the end of the ab initio training for courses such as MCC, APS MCC, and screening preparation for Airlines (like crew resource management, jet aircraft handling, and emergency procedures). The versatile simulator is inspired by many different single-aisle aircraft. Its generic flight model is based on new computational fluid dynamics, offering a similar experience as FFS level D. On top of this, the AIRLINER represents the latest technology available in modern aircraft with similar automation and flight management systems. The simulator is equipped with a two-seater cockpit and instructor station plus observer’s seats and is the perfect training tool for students to learn how to work as a team and acquire the necessary skills in leadership, decision-making, and communication.
 
According to Patrick Kessler, Commercial Airline Pilot and Head of Training at Luxembourg Flight Training Academy, the choice was driven by the unique nature of LFTA. He commented: "As a pure non-profit organization, LFTA stands out among flight schools, demonstrating its commitment to delivering exceptional training... Ensuring the best value for money was a top priority for LFTA in choosing our new flight training equipment, leading us to select ALSIM as our provider. With the addition of these 2 state-of-the-art ALSIM simulators to our existing fleet of 13 aircraft, LFTA is now equipped to offer professional and cost-effective training utilizing cutting-edge technology. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to deliver top-notch training to our students."

Audrey Jeffroy, ALSIM Sales Director, said: “We thank the Luxembourg Flight Training team for their confidence in our flight training solutions and services. We are confident that the AIRLINER and AL250 simulators will play a significant role in the education and development of the students at Luxembourg Flight Training Academy.”
