ALSIM has welcomed another new member to the family with the sale of an AL172 simulator to Lanier Flight Center in Georgia, USA.
Founded in 2003, Lanier currently operates out of Lee Gilmor Memorial Airport (KGVL) in Gainesville Georgia, as well as DeKalb-Peachtree Airport in Chamblee, near the heartbeat of one of America’s major aviation centers in Atlanta.
The AL172 simulator will perfectly complement Lanier’s growing number of Cessna C172 technically advanced aircraft. The AL172 is an exact replica of the Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk NAVIII. It features real Garmin G1000 NXI avionics and is equipped with the latest ALSIM VFR Visual System (VFRVS). The AL172, due to the VFRVS matched to the accurate force feedback, provides students with the sense of motion in a fixed-base device. This immersion and depth perception allows the simulator to be used for even your most basic PPL training, cutting down time and costs required in an aircraft, in addition to instrument and other flight training. The AL172 was purchased with assistance from Sky Allies Capital, an ALSIM partner based in Las Vegas Nevada that provides airplane, simulator and aviation equipment financing.
“We see the aviation world making a strong comeback post COVID19. Now appeared to be the perfect time to purchase a high-fidelity simulator that we can cement into our curriculum and enhance the training environment and experience. It’s been a pleasure dealing with ALSIM’s USA team, as well as speaking with their growing list of clients. We very much look forward to receiving our new simulator and working with the whole aviation family for many years to come.” says Troy Wheeler, President of Lanier.
Lanier, a FAA approved Part 141 and 161 flight school, is also a Cessna Pilot Center and Liberty University School of Aeronautics Flight Training Affiliate.
