Smoke On Go

Alsim ALX flight simulator

In order to ensure absolute convenience to our students the simulator is housed in a custom-built facility at 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 simulator facility is available 24/7 by prior booking.

The ALX-65 joins over 250 Alsim simulators in Europe, the USA, the Middle East and South Africa. The ALX incorporates five flight models from a basic single-engine aeroplane (similar to a Cessna 172) to a light twin jet, modelled on the well-known Cessna Citation II. Both traditional “round dial” as well as full EFIS (Electronic Flight Information System) 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, RNAV and GNSS capable and the turbo-prop and jet models are certified for multi-crew coordination (MCC) training and qualification. All of this along with the amazingly realistic graphics, control feel and response make training on this flight simulator a truly first class experience.

Aviation is making ever-greater use of simulation training devices to improve the safety of training while simultaneously reducing the cost and making training, particularly advanced training, more realistic. Aeronav Academy recognised the need for an advanced simulator and the choice came down to the Alsim ALX due to its versatility, strong customer support (including internet based linkage direct to the development and manufacturing experts in Nantes, France) and acceptance by leading aviation authorities such as the FAA and EASA.

Aeronav keeps its ALX-65 fully up-to-date with upgrades, as reinforcement of our commitment to providing top-level training utilising 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 our pilots will be ready and well equipped to enter the aviation industry of the future.

  • Fully approved for GNSS & RNAV training on all flight models from single-engine to twin-jet so you can train on an aircraft type you are familiar with.
  • Approved for MCC training and RNP certification.
  • Turbine models approved for ATP initial tests.
  • The Alsim ALX-65 and the Diamond DA42 are the basis for our accelerated multi-engine IFR upgrade course.
