Enhance Safety with Upset Training
Nearly 45% of all general aviation fatalities were the result of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I), according to a General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) report. Today’s required pilot training does not include UPRT, which teaches the skills required to correctly recognize, prevent, and recover from LOC-I situations. APS offers customized UPRT programs (link to why train with APS) specific to individual owners’ and operators’ skill level and aircraft, helping you develop the critical handling skills, discipline in a crisis, and mental decision-making processes that must be second nature in the event of an unexpected upset.
- Significantly increase manual aircraft handling and airmanship skills
- Develop instinctive skills to prevent, recognize, and correctly recover from LOC-I
- Gain long-term skills, transferable between aircraft types
- Fundamentally improve your overall safety
UPRT PROGRAMS FOR
Owners & Operators
Start by selecting an Initial Core UPRT Program based on your training needs and aircraft preference. Next, if desired, you can add additional training enhancements to further strengthen your training. All available core programs and enhancement options can be viewed below. If you are an APS course graduate, we recommend viewing the Recurrent Training option.
You can strengthen and further customize your UPRT program with APS by adding enhancements, from training in a jet and gaining simulator experience in a larger aircraft to receiving acrobatics and formation training. All enhancements are offered only as add-on choices to core and recurrent UPRT programs and are not available as stand-alone courses.
