Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a global advanced flight training organization, announced today at the National Business Aviation Association Convention and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE 2017) that one of its SIAI-Marchetti S211 sweptwing jets used for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) will be displayed on the static line at Henderson Executive Airport for viewing and cockpit tours (static display location: SD33). The all-attitude S211, part of APS’ integrated and comprehensive UPRT solution, gives professional jet pilots the ability to target high performance Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) training solutions at both medium and high altitudes.

According to a report issued by the Commercial Aviation Safety Team in July 2017, Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) is the leading cause of fatalities in commercial aviation worldwide. Effectively implemented UPRT programs mitigate the risk of LOC-I through integrated training methods including hands-on, in-flight training that allows pilots to practice the often counterintuitive skills necessary to quickly recovery from an unexpected upset. In addition to its S211s, APS training platforms also include Extra 300Ls, Slingsby T-67s, and multi-engine business jet and transport category advanced simulators, all designed to provide the most effective and comprehensive UPRT available while adhering to strict operational standards and safety margins. The versatility of the S211 allows a robust and customized option for the condensed APS recurrent upset training recommended biennially.

The APS Marchetti S211 has been designed with the modern business jet cockpit in mind to include: front and back Garmin glass cockpit, multi-axis autopilot, digital and selectable angle of attack integration, fully hooded jet upset instrument recovery, HD audio/video recording, in-flight-selectable control feel options and other UPRT-focused training features.

“The flight-deck technology integration and transferrable jet performance handling characteristics of the SIAI-Marchetti S211 exceed the capabilities of other UPRT jet upset training platforms in its class and offer unmatched value for our customers,” said Paul Ransbury, president of APS. “We are looking forward to exhibiting the S211 on static display at NBAA-BACE 2017.”
