Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a global flight training organization, is pleased to announce completion of the 2016 Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Scholarship course by Chin-An Lin, a flight student at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University working toward a degree in Aeronautical Science. An international student from Taiwan, Chin-An aspires to become an air ambulance pilot and thereby incorporate both of his passions: flying and helping others.
Every year, APS donates one Professional Pilot Upset Training Course, a $4300 value, to a deserving pilot currently in flight school or just starting their professional aviation career. The course provides comprehensive Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT), integrating academics and on-aircraft instruction to mitigate the risk of Loss of Control-Inflight (LOC-I). The formative years of initial pilot training are the ideal time for pilots to experience UPRT. Modern UPRT compliments licensing training by ensuring pilots have a deep understanding of upset causes – with critical focus on prevention – and are trained to proficiency in the often counterintuitive skills necessary to recover from a developed airplane upset.
“The APS Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Scholarship program has armed me with critical piloting skill sets and mental preparation that will be with me throughout my aviation career,” said Chin-An. “I feel I can now confidently recover from almost any stall or upset situation, but the most important take-aways are a deep awareness of LOC-I contributing factors, perspective on how to manage startle and, most importantly, the skills to recognize and prevent an airplane upset before it develops. The very best upset recovery is to never get upset in the first place.”
“The UPRT Scholarship program is just one, but very important, way for APS to give back to the industry and the pilot community, and the training yields maximum impact in the career of a pilot to preserve the life and well being of every crew, family member and passenger they ever fly with,” said Paul Ransbury, President of APS. “Chin-An, an ambitious and dedicated professional pilot student with a firm intent to use his piloting skills to serve others in a number of ways, is the perfect candidate to receive this scholarship.”
APS offers upset prevention & recovery training to all sectors of aviation: airline, military/government, corporate, owner/operator and flight schools.
