Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I), aviation’s #1 fatal threat to air safety, is over six times more numerous for single-pilot operators than for crewed airplanes averaged across the combination Part 135 on demand, executive/corporate, and general aviation business flight operations. Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a global leader in Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT), has doubled down on helping single-pilot operators bring everyone home safely by investing in adding a 1-hour simulator upgrade for the first 50 single pilots to sign up for any initial APS on-aircraft UPRT program by November 29, 2019.
Mesa, Arizona – Monday, November 25, 2019 – Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a global leader in Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT), announced today a special week-long safety initiative aimed at investing in single-pilot operational safety. For single-pilot operators, APS will include a 1-hour advanced simulator session with and of its initial multi-day on-aircraft UPRT programs. apstraining.com/single-pilots
50 Single-pilot Slots Open for Five Days – Up to One Year to Fly the Program:
- Who: Exclusive to single-pilot operators. Piston, turboprop, turbofan, and turbojet operators are all included.
- What: First 50 on-aircraft UPRT programs booked receive a 1-hour advanced UPRT simulator upgrade on APS ($1500 value).
- When: Submit your name online from 9 am EST Monday, November 25 through 9 pm EST Friday, November 29, 2019 — apstraining.com/single-pilots
- Where: Training must be accomplished at APS Headquarters in Arizona within 1-year.
- Why: You are at risk. Comprehensive UPRT offers an unparalleled training experience that could one day save your life.
Because recent NTSB data reveals that single-pilot operators account for more than six times the number of fatal LOC-I accidents over the past 10 years compared to crewed operations, mitigating this threat through properly conducted UPRT is a critical safety goal for the aviation industry. Moreover, overcoming this risk is integral to APS’ purpose to help pilots bring everyone home safely.
While it is well-established that on-aircraft UPRT is highly effective and significantly superior to simulator training, there are still critical UPRT scenarios that cannot safely be practiced in an airplane. This upgrade allows single pilots, who are generally less likely to add simulator training to their UPRT program, an opportunity to get comprehensive training and reduce their risk of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I).
“This unprecedented upgrade and investment by APS in single-pilot safety, allows our team to provide single-pilot operators critical training that they need to enhance their operational security. My strong advice for every single-pilot operator is to get one of APS’s 50 slots immediately and transform your skills to an all-new level in just 2.5 days,” said APS CEO, Paul ‘BJ’ Ransbury. “APS is dedicated to the safety of every pilot and their passengers. We are committed to leading this initiative to substantially reduce the number of lives lost due to preventable LOC-I related accidents.”
