Aeronav Academy is very proud to announce the arrival of a brand new Alsim ALX flight and navigation procedures trainer (FNPT II). In order to ensure convenience to our students we have custom-built an extension to our existing offices in order to house the flight simulator on our premises at Lanseria International Airport.
A comprehensive safety and security system, including biometric identification, has been installed to ensure our students are safe and secure during late night training sessions as the simulation facility is available for use 24/7 by prior booking.

The ALX-65 joins over 250 Alsim simulators in Europe, the USA, the Middle and Far East and South Africa. The ALX incorporates four flight models, from a basic single-engine aeroplane (similar in behaviour to a Cessna 172) to a light twin turboprop, modelled on the well-known King Air 200. Both traditional “round dial” as well as full EFIS instrumentation can be chosen, with changing from one model or instrument display to another taking only a few minutes. Live Jeppesen databases are used in the GPS navigation system, so users can train under real conditions. The simulator is fully LNAV/VNAV capable and is certified by EASA for multi-crew coordination (MCC) training and qualification. All of this along with amazingly realistic graphics, control feel and response make training on this flight simulator a truly first class experience.

A few years ago, we saw the need for an advanced simulator and an opportunity to base one at Lanseria. Aviation training is making ever-greater use of simulation devices to improve the safety of training while simultaneously reducing the cost and making training, particularly advanced training, more realistic.
The choice came down to the Alsim ALX based on its versatility, strong customer support (including internet-based linkage direct with the development and manufacturing experts in Nantes, France) and acceptance by the leading aviation authorities such as the FAA and EASA.

Aeronav sees the acquisition of the ALX as reinforcement of its commitment to providing top-level training utilising the most modern equipment. This not only gives our clients an enjoyable training experience but also gives us the ability to conduct flight training in a manner that ensures that our pilots will be ready and well equipped to enter the aviation industry of the future.
