UPRT iPad App

This App provides the academic foundation for the development of the practical skills necessary to prevent an upset or recover an airplane to controlled flight amidst a developing high-stress, time-critical airplane upset situation.

Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a USA-based flight school with training centers in Arizona, Texas and Europe, announced today, in partnership with International Development of Technology BV (IDT), a Netherlands-based company, the release of a new airplane upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT) application for iPad. The training content of this dynamic, interactive iPad experience is founded upon the industry-accepted Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid (AURTA) with modernization for the iPad format. Eight modular chapters cover an introduction to UPRT, aerodynamics, causes of upsets, recovery techniques, and sample training programs.

This UPRT iPad App provides the information included in the Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid in a format that is easy to navigate and provides individual progress tracking. The state-of-the-art presentation includes enhanced high-quality embedded graphics, videos and animations that make this vital information accessible and comprehensible for all pilots and instructors. Throughout 150 pages divided into eight modular chapters, the UPRT App has examination questions for each module and real-world examples from accident/incident data. The APS-IDT UPRT App provides correct, industry-endorsed and accurate information on UPRT in a package that is useful for both Business Aviation and Commercial Airlines. http://www.apstraining.com/apps

“This App provides the necessary academic foundation for the development of the practical skills necessary to prevent an airplane upset or, if necessary, to recover an airplane to controlled flight amidst a developing high-stress, time-critical airplane upset situation,” says Dr. Sunjoo Advani, Chairman of the International Committee for Aviation Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE), a body of over 40 organizations and 80 aviation industry experts dedicated to the standardized global delivery of UPRT, “Use of material from the Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid ensures that all information is thoroughly vetted and applicable to high performance multi-engine jet airplanes.”

The UPRT iPad App is being demonstrated at the Aviation Performance Solutions' Booth (N527) at the 2013 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Las Vegas, NV - 23-24 October, 2013.
