APS Highlights Next-Generation Flight School Upset Training at APATS 2023

Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) is set to emphasize the transformative power of Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) at the 19th Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS) in Singapore. The APS CEO spotlights how comprehensive UPRT can effectively serve every professional pilot, highlighting APS’s commitment to enhancing aviation safety.


Singapore, Singapore – August 29, 2023:

Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) is poised to make a significant impact at the 19th Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS) held on 29-30 August 2023 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. Building on the momentum from their successful presentation at WATS 2023, APS will emphasize the importance of Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) in the aviation industry.

Paul BJ Ransbury, CEO of APS and Chairman of the NBAA Safety Committee, will be presenting on the first day of the symposium, sharing invaluable insights on “Effective Next Gen Flight School Upset Training.” As a former fighter pilot, military instructor, and airline pilot, Ransbury brings a wealth of experience to the table. His presentation will delve deep into the significance of UPRT, especially in light of the current pilot shortage and the persistent threat of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I).

The aviation community recognizes UPRT as a pivotal solution to combat commercial aviation’s number one fatal threat: LOC-I. Ransbury will highlight the differences between implementing ICAO recommendations versus EASA-compliant UPRT at an ab initio level. He will also show how major US air carriers and feeder schools, such as United Airlines and United Aviate Academy, have seamlessly integrated robust on-aircraft and simulator-based UPRT into their Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

“Our purpose at APS is ‘We Help Pilots Bring Everyone Home Safely.’ We deliver on our brand promise of ‘Every Pilot Trained – In Control – All The Time’ through robust, comprehensive Upset Prevention and Recovery Training,” said Ransbury.
APATS 2023, themed “New Talent, New Technologies, New Training,” is expected to bring together leading experts from airlines, ATOs, manufacturers, regulators, and the training industry. The symposium aims to promote best practices in pilot and cabin crew training, ensuring operational safety as the aviation industry gears up for rapid expansion.
