The ALSR20 is the brand-new simulator manufactured by Alsim and is the exact replica of the Cirrus SR20 aircraft.

This Flight Training Device (FTD) Level 5 is specifically designed for PPL and IR training needs. It reproduces the Cirrus SR20 specific interior cockpit and flight deck and comes along with a Garmin GDU 1050A and GFC 700 Autopilot. The ALSR20 is equipped with a Garmin GMA 350C all digital Audio Panel and a Garmin GCU 479. The device can also simulate the Cirrus airframe parachute system (CAPS).

Cirrus South Africa is an approved Cirrus Platinum Partner which guides customers through purchase of the Cirrus SLR20 and then training and maintenance of the aircraft at the Lanseria base.

Cirrus South Africa’s Tony Forbes said: “The reliability and the quality of the product as well as the impressive in-house support structure were the key factors for our decision to buy from ALSIM”.
