The Embraer Jet Operators Association is dedicated to keeping our members aware of air safety concerns and partnering with the industry’s leading training experts to reduce their operational risks.

Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) announced today that it has partnered with the Embraer Jet Operators Association (EJOA) to provide industry-leading Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) to its members. APS will be on-display and speaking at PHENOMENAL 2016 in Santa Fe, NM, an EJOA owner/operator conference combined with the Embraer Executive Jets Executive Operators Conference. On auction is a $14,000 3-day jet upset training program at APS in Arizona with multiple UPRT flights to include a culminating high-altitude, high-mach, training session with APS in the A4 Skyhawk supported by Discovery Air Defence.

Loss of Control In-flight (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 presentation delivered to the NBAA Safety Committee in January 2016 by the NTSB, LOC-I was identified as the primary category of accident in every segment of aviation including personal, instructional, business and corporate flying sectors. As the NTSB’s top aviation safety concern in its 2016 Most Wanted List, LOC-I accounts for more than 40% of all fatalities in general aviation. According to the FAA’s website, a fatal LOC-I accident occurs every four days in the United States. APS’s global network of dedicated flight schools specialize in effectively delivered UPRT which mitigates the LOC-I threat to air safety through pilot education and practical skill development.

“The Embraer Jet Operators Association is dedicated to keeping our members aware of air safety concerns and partnering with the industry’s leading training experts to reduce their operational risks,” said Mark Twombly, the association’s Executive Director. “As the established leader in providing effective, industry-compliant UPRT, APS has a variety of solutions to work within the budgets of our members. They can integrate tablet-based apps, high performance jet training and advanced simulator resources to fit the specific needs of individuals or organizations.” In addition to the auction at PHENOMENAL 2016, APS will be providing the EJOA members with fleet-relevant training and safety articles throughout the year to appear on the association’s website as well as in Contrails Magazine.

“After speaking at the Embraer Executive Jets Safety Standdown in January 2016, it was evident that Embraer is passionately devoted to the ongoing safety of its diverse customer base. APS is honored by the opportunity to establish a safety-focused partnership with the Embraer Jet Operators Association,” says Paul BJ Ransbury, president of Aviation Performance Solutions. “Together, we will take firm and progressive steps forward to maximize air safety and provide EJOA members with the information, resources and training programs necessary to ultimately overcome aviation’s leading fatal threat to air safety, Loss of Control In-flight.”
