Alsim convertible simulator

French simulator manufacture Alsim has launched a new product, the convertible simulator AL40/42. It combines two popular Diamond aircraft, the DA40 single and DA42 twin, in one device.

What’s more, the sim reproduces the Diamond specific cockpit interior and flightdeck.

“Changing from the DA42 to the DA40 configuration is fast and easy and is performed by swapping only the dashboard and the middle console,” said the company.

“The conversion kit provides two cockpit and central panels, including all a/c system switches, Garmin avionics, as well as the specific power levers, fuel selection and yaw trim panels. The switch of the central panel can be optional as the DA40 configuration will be compatible with the DA42’s.”

The simulator includes real Garmin G1000 NXI and GFC 700 Autopilot / Flight Director, the latest VFR-VS image generator and visual system with 210-degree screen and instructor station designed for comfort.

It’s specifically designed for PPL, IR and CPL training needs and is compliant with the latest aviation standards from EASA (FNPT II) and the FAA (AATD & FTD 5) to TC (FTD2) and CAAC (FTD5).
