"We are confident, based on over two decades training thousands of pilots, that the efforts being put forth by United and others in the industry to focus on properly implemented UPRT will result in lives saved."
MESA, Ariz. (PRWEB) May 20, 2019
Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), the global leader in Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT), is speaking and participating in the inaugural UPRT Global Summit hosted by United Airlines May 21-22, 2019 in Denver, Colorado. As the UPRT provider for two of the four US Legacy airlines as well as worldwide airlines of all sizes, APS is the only comprehensive, dedicated UPRT train-the-trainer provider with proven, turn-key solutions for airlines to implement UPRT safely, effectively and economically.
New Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations in the United States required Part 121 Air Carriers to have expanded and FAA-approved UPRT training in operations by March 2019. This expanded full stall and upset training is specifically targeted to reduce the risk of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I), the number one cause of fatalities across all sectors of aviation. UPRT teaches pilots the skills to recognize, prevent, and if necessary, recovery from an unexpected LOC-I. Driven by the theme “Learn. Connect. Inspire.,” the UPRT Global Summit allows airlines to come together to discuss best practices for implementing UPRT as efficiently as possible while keeping safety as the preeminent concern both during training and after.
“Establishing the UPRT Global Summit demonstrates United Airlines’ commitment to the aviation industry as well as their concern for the safety of every pilot and the passengers who fly with them,” said Paul Ransbury, APS president. “APS has been at the forefront of demonstrating the life-saving value of Upset Prevention and Recovery Training, and we are confident, based on over two decades training thousands of pilots, that the efforts being put forth by United and others in the industry to focus on properly implemented UPRT will result in lives saved.”
All four of the US legacy carriers as well as other airlines both foreign and domestic are set to attend the UPRT Global Summit. APS will conduct a presentation on challenges to, and solutions for, airlines trying to develop and maintain a cadre of UPRT instructor subject matter experts (SMEs) charged with leading this critical training intervention within their airline. APS airline UPRT experts will be available at a company booth to answer questions about airline Upset Prevention and Recovery Training implementation.
