The most effective, safe, and long-lasting UPRT solutions are accomplished through an interrelated combination of industry-approved loss of control academics, proper use of all-attitude piston and jet airplanes, and appropriately integrated flight simulation training devices. Strategic integration of these three training mediums provides an engaging learning environment for pilots to receive the training required to achieve their skill development goals. This powerful approach equips pilots with the skills and knowledge to comprehensively reduce the risk of the Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) threat, and make a lasting impact on their overall flying career.
Tri-Level Training Structure
APS’s tri-level structure, painstakingly developed over two decades, consists of structured academics, multiple on-aircraft sessions, and transfer of skill validation integrating flight simulation. In a true synergistic relationship, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. No single medium or platform provides the comprehensive skill development that integrating all three mediums provides. Any missing element within the integrated training structure causes limitations in pilot skill development, whether those limitations are in knowledge, experience, or skills. All three mediums together provide valuable, complementary lessons for the pilot.
