Alsim Partners With Mélanie Astles

First Female Red Bull Air Race Winner And French Aerobatics Champion

Alsim is partnering with the first female Red Bull Air Race winner and French aerobatics champion Mélanie Astles. While Mélanie knows her way around those pylons very well, the team at Alsim believes it can help in her train to win those few extra seconds required to stand out in this highly skilled, competitive sport.

Together with Mélanie (pictured), Alsim will develop a full-size replica of her aircraft, the Red Bull Edge 540, also known as the Formula 1 of the skies. This exclusive simulator will be composed of a single-seat cockpit equipped with central flight stick, rudder and throttles found in the standard aircraft configuration. All primary flight controls will have an active control loading system providing Melanie with the same “cues” as her flying machine, and instruments and cockpit layout will also be accurately represented.

Alsim will also design a specific aerodynamic and performance model in partnership with Mélanie, to offer maximum fidelity and provide her with an extremely efficient, competitive, training device. The visual system will be based on Alsim's seamless cylindrical screen with a 210° x 60° field of view to deliver the best immersion required for extremely fast flights.

All race tracks will be fully replicated in the visual system with pylons, terrain elevation, buildings and the surrounding areas. The simulator will provide real and post-time flight data allowing Mélanie’s team to analyze her performance, help improve her skills, and ultimately master the circuit before each race.

“We at Alsim wish Mélanie all the best and we’re sure that our joint collaboration will help her stay ahead of the field at all times,” says Alsim Global Business Development Director Mike Tonkin.

Mélanie is looking forward to a great season. “My goal for 2019 is to give my best and continue to deliver strong performances, but refine the details even more," she said. "Alsim will be a strong partner to improve my skills and work hard all along the season to reach my goals."
