Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Aviation Performance Solutions (APS), the leading global provider of comprehensive Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT), announced today its all-new lineup of recurrent UPRT programs at all four of its locations across three continents.
Effectively delivered UPRT comprehensively mitigates the loss of control in-flight (LOC-I) threat to air safety through pilot education and practical skill development. LOC-I is defined as flight that occurs outside of the normal flight envelope with an inability of the pilot to control the aircraft. In a report issued by Boeing in August 2014, the Commercial Aviation Safety Team’s statistical research identifies LOC-I as the cause of the most fatalities in jet aviation worldwide over the past 10 years, 2004 through 2013.
APS is offering thousands of its past customers the opportunity to participate in a series of alternative training pathways through recurrent training with highlighted areas of emphasis. APS graduates who have previously completed an intense 3-day initial program with at least four in-flight sessions to imbed fundamental UPRT skills qualify for the new recurrent program. That represents more than 95% of APS graduates. The core recurrent program is a single-day session to re-invigorate, refresh and update essential loss of control in-flight mitigation skills. Recent regulatory enhancements to UPRT methods are addressed comprehensively to keep APS UPRT graduates on the leading edge of eradicating the threat of loss of control in-flight to their passengers, families, fellow flight crewmembers and themselves. In addition, APS has developed five (5) UPRT focus modules that can be optionally added onto the core recurrent program for pilots wanting to advance their skill-sets in specific areas of concern for their particular operation. Focus modules include high-altitude high-mach operations, multi-engine jet glass cockpit integration, instrument flying applications, advanced manual handling and stall/spin awareness. For those wanting to step out of these tightly focused UPRT concentrations, APS even offers an add-on aerobatics module.
“The all-new APS recurrent training programs are designed to fit the upset training needs of any pilot, flight department, company or training organization.” says Paul BJ Ransbury, president of Aviation Performance Solutions, former military instructor and airline pilot, “In addition to refreshing core skills quickly and economically on a flexible schedule, APS identifies career-long training pathways for pilots to methodically expand to their knowledge, skills and awareness that go well beyond core UPRT fundamentals to permanently reduce the risk of loss of control in-flight.”
