FTEJerez is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new simulator provided by ALSIM, the AL250-63. The AL250 simulator addresses initial phase training needs (PPL, CPL, IR/ME) and is an SEP/MEP re-configurable simulator subject to be certified as an EASA FNPT II. In addition, it offers both classic and glass cockpit instrumentation for each flight model. The simulator arrived in Jerez last week and has been successfully installed. FTEJerez will now be working with AESA to certify the AL250 as an approved Flight Synthetic Training Device (FSTD) and also for PBN (Performance Based Navigation). Furthermore, the device will allow FTEJerez to conduct Flight Instructor upgrades, for example to IRI.
Oscar Sordo, FTEJerez CEO, commented: “At FTEJerez we believe that every stage of the training syllabus is important to achieve the standards the industry demands. The AL250 is a necessary upgrade to provide our cadets with the best equipment and training experience at what is a key stage of their training course: their initial single engine flying”.
On behalf of Alsim, Nicolas de Lassus, Alsim Sales Account Manager, added that “we are very glad to welcome FTEJerez among our customers. Adding an AL250 flight simulator will enable the school to provide high-quality courses to the initial phases of the Ab-Initio training. We would like to thank FTE’s team for their trust and we hope that this is the beginning of a successful cooperation between our two companies”.
