Newsletter 77 – April 2015

Students of Pipistrel Academy can now simulate flights using ALPHA Trainer on one of the best flight simulators available, the X-Plane 10. The accuracy of the flight model achieved is about 95% of the real ALPHA, providing a useful training tool, of course if used correctly. The simulator has been tested and verified by experimental and production test pilots of Pipistrel and instructors of Pipistrel Academy. We have focused on developing the flight dynamics and the cockpit, providing the students with the environment they encounter in their Pipistrel airplane.

Interested in pricing? No need, as the simulator is available for free to all registered users of Pipistrel Academy! Download it, install it and enjoy!
