Original Release at PRWeb: Arizona Flight School Approved for Increased Wings Program Credits
Arizona’s Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) is Approved to Provide Even More Wings Program Credits for its Upset Prevention and Upset Recovery Training Courses in Arizona – A Report Issued by the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) and Safety Analysis Team (SAT) in 2011 Shows Loss of Control in-Flight (LOC-I) to be the Most Prevalent Type of General Aviation Accident Between 2001 and 2010 – Effectively Delivered Upset Recovery Training Mitigates the LOC-I Threat to Air Safety through Pilot Education and Skill Development.
Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) December 20, 2012 – Aviation Performance Solutions, LLC (APS) announced today its FAA approval to increase FAA WINGS credits for many of its loss of control in-flight mitigation courses. All multi-day APS upset recovery and emergency maneuver training courses, recurrency courses, and many specialty courses are authorized for credits at the Basic, Advanced, and Master levels of the WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program. The number, type (Knowledge or Flight) and level of credits authorized varies with each course, depending on content.
The FAA’s Advisory Circular AC 61-91J describes the WINGS – Pilot Proficiency Program objective as “… [reducing] the number of accidents in General Aviation by assisting airmen to find educational opportunities designed to help them apply the principles of risk assessment and risk management. When properly applied, these principles will help mitigate accident causal factors associated with common pilot errors, lack of proficiency, and faulty knowledge”.
“Comprehensive upset prevention and recovery training as taught using APS proprietary technologies rapidly develops knowledge and skills to mitigate loss of control in-flight for pilots at all levels of experience. ” said Paul BJ Ransbury, President of APS. “Of critical importance in any upset training curriculum is the enhancement of a pilot’s experience with transferrable concepts and strategies that can last in the long term.” The knowledge, experience and skills that APS’s courses provide consistently produce a safer, more aware pilot.
A number of aviation insurance providers recognize the effectiveness of the WINGS – Pilot Proficiency Program by providing premium discounts for policy holders that complete the various phases of the WINGS program.
