Chennai. 03 November 2017 . Alsim is very pleased to announce the sale of an AL250 simulator to Orient Flight School, a flight training school located in Chennai, India. The simulator will be installed this autumn.
Orient Flight School and Alsim signed a Memorandum of Understanding earlier this year: the flight school is now the official Indian Demo Center, with the objective to show all Alsim product’s range in its academy. The flight school started adding this AL250 simulator to its fleet.
