Our experience indicates that recurrent training on an annual basis maintains and re-affirms upset recovery training skills learned during your initial training with APS. As with many aspects of aviation, skills and learning deteriorate over time because of disuse. Upset Recovery / Spin Training is not an exception. Typically, pilots returning for recurrent training want a thorough review of previous techniques, practices and aerodynamic knowledge.
Recurrent Training Options
If it's been 2-years or more since your last training session, experience has shown us that the best training value is for clients to complete a full course as opposed to a recurrent program. If you are within the 2-year window and are just looking to hone your recovery skills, then one of the following programs is highly recommended:
Recurrent Client Testimonials
"Excellent three day training program! We regard this training highly as demonstrated by our second cycle through the program with all of our pilots."
"Still in awe even after my 3rd visit. I just finished attending for the 3rd time and I am still in awe of all I have learned and how instinctive it is for me to perform these maneuvers no matter how my 'inner ear' feels and regardless of being under the hood or visual, slightly upset or fully inverted and losing altitude fast. I am confident that APS has equipped me with the tools to recover the aircraft should I get into an upset position. My amazement doesn't go away despite my growing familiarity with the course content. This training SAVES lives and it is made possible through the most professional group of instructors and staff members that I have been associated with. It's a pleasure to visit your facility and to be integrated into your training. See you all again soon. Thank you again."
"This is my second time attending training at APS for emergency maneuvering and recovery. It is no exaggeration, this is the best flight training I have received in my career!!! The skills that were taught and reinforced have given me the confidence to handle an aircraft in an unusual attitude and recovery it safely and within airframe limitations."
