APS 2021 Upset Training Scholarship: Apply by April 1, 2021

Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS) is currently reviewing applications for the annual Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT) Scholarship Program, which will award the selected applicant a comprehensive 3-day APS Professional Pilot Upset Training Course. UPRT builds pilots’ foundational skills, professionalism and marketability not only by training them how to prevent or overcome an unexpected loss of control in-flight, but also by improving general manual handling proficiency and airmanship.

Mesa, AZ – February 12, 2021 – Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), the global leader in Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT), encourages current pilots in training or recent graduates to apply for the 2021 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 April 1, 2021. APPLY HERE.

The Professional Pilot Upset Training Course provides new and seasoned pilots with intense academic 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 recover should an upset develop, but also increases pilots’ ability to recognize and prevent a developing situation before it becomes a problem. Additionally, UPRT rapidly develops general manual handling skills and improves overall pilot airmanship — giving new pilots a wealth of valuable experience in a fraction of the time.

“The annual APS scholarship program is dedicated to supporting the aviation industry as well as APS’ purpose: We Help Pilots Bring Everyone Home Safely,” said Paul Ransbury, President of APS. “UPRT saves lives, and it is our privilege to train an up and coming pilot with skills that can empower them to be the best pilot they can be and mitigate the risk of Loss of Control In-flight, the single greatest cause of aviation-related fatalities, to which new pilots can be particularly susceptible.”

To be considered for the 2021 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:
