Alsim is very proud to announce the sale of an AL 250 to Nortavia, a pilot training and flight school in Maia, Portugal. The ATO is currently using Cessna 152, 172 and 172 G1000, as well as a Piper Seminole PA44, a Beechcraft F33A and a Tecnam P2006T.

The Alsim AL250 is a generic and compact simulator for single & multi engine piston (SEP/MEP reconfigurable) PPL, CPL & IR training. The device meets all current regulatory standards and responds to training requirements of smaller and mid-sized ATOs, flight schools, and universities. With more than 30 devices installed worldwide, the AL250 has a proven track record for cost-effectiveness and helps save numerous aircraft hours.

“After many years solidifying a relationship between the companies, with multiple encounters and meeting, the decision to acquire one of ALSIM’s simulators was not a matter of “if” but just of “when” according to Gonçalo Moreira, General Manager of Nortavia. As the necessity of investing in a simulator arrived, it was just a small step for us to go for ALSIM’s product which has provided us with a guarantee of quality and adaptability, more than sufficient to advance without doubt”.

Mr Nicolas de Lassus, Alsim’s Sales Account Manager, added, “We would like to thank Nortavia's team and especially Captain Cassiano Rodrigues for his confidence in the Alsim team and product. It's another success for the AL250 simulator in Portugal and we are sure that it will enable the flight school to provide the most advanced level of CPL/IR training not only for Portuguese cadets but also for the cadets coming from abroad. We are looking forward to installing the simulator in Porto's region and to begin a successful cooperation between our two companies”.

Nortávia was founded in 1989 and is today mostly dedicated to training ATPL(A) pilots. At the very beginning of its operation, Nortávia trained private pilots and did various aerial work such as photography and banner towing. Later on, Nortavia started training professional pilots which took its operation to a new level.

Located in the beautiful area of Vilar de Luz, just off Porto, Nortávia operates more than 15 aircraft, and is committed to the instruction of an ever-growing number of ATPL(A) students to a standard of excellence. This focus on quality can be perceived by the company’s ongoing investment in infrastructures, the increase of the fleet and the inclusion of glass cockpits for the more advanced phases of instruction.
