Original PRWeb release: APS 2019 Upset Training Scholarship: Last Call for Applicants
MESA, AZ (PRWEB) – Feb. 26, 2019 – Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), the global leader in Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT), invites current pilots in training or recent graduates to apply for the 2019 UPRT Scholarship. Each year, APS awards one Professional Pilot Upset Training Course, involving 3-days and 4 flights covering 5 missions, to a deserving pilot starting their professional aviation career. Pilots should apply by the April 1, 2019. APPLY HERE.
The Professional Pilot Upset Training Course provides new and seasoned pilots with intense ground and on-aircraft training focused on mitigating the risk of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I), the number one cause of fatalities in all categories of civil aviation. The goal of training is always to prevent an upset situation from occurring in the first place, and research has shown that practicing recovery techniques not only gives pilots the often counter-intuitive skills necessary to calmly recover should an upset develop, but this type of training also increases pilots’ ability to recognize and prevent a developing situation before it becomes a problem. Additionally, UPRT develops general manual handling skills and improves overall pilot airmanship.
“Now in its eighth year, the APS scholarship program is dedicated to supporting the aviation industry as well as APS’ fundamental goal to improve global aviation safety,” said Paul Ransbury, President of APS. “Each year, the industry experiences fatalities due to loss of control incidents that have been shown to be preventable through proper training. UPRT saves lives, and it is our privilege to train an up and coming pilot to be a safer pilot for himself and all of those who will travel with him.”
To be considered for the 2019 APS Upset Recovery Training Scholarship, a prospective recipient must be a current student or recent graduate of an Aviation College or University Aerospace program. The winner will be selected based on their overall GPA, flight ratings/certificates, flight experience, letters of recommendation and a personal essay. Applications for the APS Upset Training Scholarship will be accepted through April 1, 2019. To find out more and apply, please visit: https://www.apstraining.com/scholarship/
