The University of Nottingham selects ALSIM's AL250 Simulator


ALSIM, flight simulator manufacturer, today announced the sale of the AL250 simulator to The University of Nottingham. The compact SEP/MEP reconfigurable simulator addresses PPL, CPL and IR/ME training needs. In addition to the simulator, the University also selected ALSIM’s Engineering Pack for research projects.

Dr Harald Pfifer, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Engineering at The University of Nottingham, explained why the AL250 simulator was chosen. He said, “We picked Alsim because it not only offered a great flight simulator, but also an engineering kit that allows our students to ‘look under the hood.’ Alsim’s unique Engineering Pack enables us to use the simulator to demonstrate the principles of flight, and further develop our work in research projects and advanced labs. The simulator will be used to teach flight mechanics and flight controls. By using the Engineering Pack, we can change the aerodynamic derivatives of an aircraft’s configuration and demonstrate in a hands-on way, how this affects the dynamics. In addition, the students can design their own autopilot and implement it through the Engineering Pack on the simulator. In advanced integrated group projects, students can develop their own aircraft, generate an aerodynamic model for it and fly test it on the simulator.”
