Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a global flight training organization, is pleased to announce the delivery of the 2015 Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Scholarship course to Alex Johnson, a student at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and member of the accomplished Golden Eagles Flight Team.
Each year, APS donates one Professional Pilot Upset Training Course, a $4300 value, to a deserving pilot starting their professional aviation career. The course provides comprehensive Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT), integrating academics and on-aircraft instruction to reduce the risk of Loss of Control-Inflight (LOC-I). The formative years of initial pilot training are the ideal time for the integration of UPRT, which compliments primary licensing training by ensuring pilots are trained to proficiency in the often counterintuitive skills necessary to recover from an airplane upset.
“The training provided by APS is extremely beneficial to any pilot of any skill level,” said Alex, who is looking forward to becoming a flight instructor in the near future. “I would strongly recommend Upset Prevention & Recovery Training to all pilots, as the skills learned can and will make the difference between returning the aircraft safely to the ground or becoming another unfortunate statistic.” 2016 APS Upset Training Scholarship – apply here: www.apstraining.com/scholarship/
