Springbank Air Training College (SATC) purchased an AL200 simulator to train their over 200 students at their facility in Alberta, Canada. They are located at Springbank Airport just ten minutes west of Calgary.
As one of WestJet’s newest official Flight Training Partners, Springbank Air offers a career path through WestJet’s Flightpath Program. Flight instructors in this program are offered opportunities to engage in various training platforms including Crew Resource Management (CRM) classes and simulator training sessions.
When asked why they chose ALSIM’s AL200 simulator, SATC President Jayme Hepfner said, “With the increased demand for pilots, it’s becoming more important to utilize advanced simulation to provide the necessary training to meet the standards of the Airline industry, such as with our Westjet partnership.”
SATC General Manager Jade Jewell added, “The AL200 offers multiple benefits above and beyond aircraft training. We are not limited by weather, we have more control over flight parameters and emergency scenarios, Multi-Crew Training, and very realistic layout and graphics, to name a few.”
SATC joins other prominent Canadian flight schools that purchased an ALSIM simulator over recent months including Journey Air and Montair Aviation.
