About Our Facility

Many 4-star hotels are located within a 2-10 minute drive of the Breda Airport and are situated in parts of the beautiful Dutch countryside. Most of the hotels are within easy walking distance to nice cafes and restaurants. Many beautiful wooded-walking paths await your relaxing stroll after a comprehensive day of training. And if you need some more excitement, an indoor skydive facility, go-cart center, 9-hole golf course, and an in-door swimming center are all located in the immediate area. For those interested in exploring outside the local area, beautiful beaches and classic windmills are within a 45-minute drive.

 

The APS Europe team works from comfortable facilities designed to maximize the learning environment with classrooms, a lounge with coffee and tea, and free Wi-Fi accessibility. The team is passionate about providing training to professional pilots who are interested in improving their knowledge, skills, and awareness in relation to Loss of Control In-flight. They pride themselves on A+ customer service, comprehensive industry-leading training, and safe quality training platforms. APS looks forward to the opportunity of working with your team of pilots to enhance air safety.

Programs

All of the upset training courses offered at APS teach every participant to recover from a wide diversity of in-flight upset situations or flight envelope excursions. Most importantly, the APS Europe training programs are focused on promoting recognition and avoidance through in-flight and simulator training integrated with a thorough theoretical understanding of the aerodynamics involved with each potential flight condition. To accomplish this, pilots are immersed in the world of unusual attitude and uncommon flight envelope conditions, while instilling participants with effective recognition, avoidance, and recovery capabilities.

Instructors

The entire team at APS Europe is devoted to making your flight training session an exciting, memorable highlight. From the moment you make your first contact with APS to the actual flight and beyond, you’ll be in the hands of professionals. Each instructor pilot’s professional flight experience spans a highly specialized spectrum of aviation that uniquely qualifies them as the ideal training providers. All have extensive experience in general aviation, aerobatic maneuvering, military instruction, technologically advanced aircraft, and commercial and/or transport category flight operations.

We look forward to flying with you!
