|Tuesday 19th December 2017 – ALSIM is very pleased to announce the sale of an AL42 simulator to Journey Air, a Canadian flight school located in Windsor, Ontario. This will be the first AL42, a replica of the Diamond DA42, in North America.
Based at the Windsor International Airport, less than 10 miles from Detroit, MI, Journey Air is in a prime location to take advantage of Canada’s four seasons, as well as the opportunity to interact with U.S. flight controllers – something that U.S. military pilots go to Windsor for.
Journey Air works closely with the University of Windsor on their Aeronautics Leadership Program, which was developed in response to the growing demand for pilots. The AL42 will help train future pilots in this program.
Jonathan Carnie, Journey Air’s Operations Manager says, “Our aim was to find a Flight Training Device which would replicate our multi engine and instrument training aircraft as closely as possible, enabling us to maximize the transfer of training from the device to the aircraft and keep our operation running as efficiently as possible. After looking at different manufacturers, we decided on the Alsim AL42. Between the high quality of the simulation and the device itself, along with Alsim’s reputation for excellent customer support, it was an easy decision to make.”
Journey Air joins a growing list of global flight schools located throughout Asia, Europe, and the Middle East that own and operate an Alsim AL42.
