What are the height and weight restrictions?

FAQ #4 - Height, Weight & Other Options


“What are my options if I don’t meet height & weight restrictions?…
And, do you have other programs I can start with other than real airplane training?”

“As a wildfire suppression (airtanker) pilot, the APS upset training course is simply the best life assurance I can obtain … the web-based Core Upset Recovery Concepts training program allows me to review essential aerodynamics at my leisure, and brush up in preparation for recurrent training. I am looking forward to enrolling in the APS full motion simulator training course. Simulator training should provide in-depth evaluation of emergency procedures, and proficiency, beyond what I can safely accomplish in an aircraft.
