“VR UPRT is something that has been rewarding to work on while continuing to fulfill our purpose to Help Pilots Bring Everyone Home Safely. Being chosen for the AIN Top Flight Award in the Training Innovation category is a tremendous honor,” said Paul ‘BJ’ Ransbury, CEO of APS, “While the skills pilots learn in the APS integrated UPRT program are fully transferable, our Virtual Reality UPRT allows further refinement of these skills and an opportunity to apply skills in their type-specific environment as the final stage of training.”
