Jet Pilots Address Rusty Manual Handling Proficiency Head-on

Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) is offering a ½ day in-flight jet pilot training session focused on improving manual flight operations proficiency. This course offers a turnkey solution to the COVID-induced decline of manual handling skills, a growing industry safety threat.

In response to professional jet pilots’ reduced operational activity due to COVID-19, APS announced today a ½-Day Jet Manual Handling Skills Course. This single-flight safety training course directly addresses the threat of declining manual flight operations proficiency for jet pilots across the aviation industry.

Leveraging the SIAI Marchetti S211 swept-wing, complex, glass cockpit, all-attitude-capable jet, the flight profile is focused on a diversity of manual handling operations to include slow flight, clean and configured approach to stall and stall conditions, flight path management exercises, and low/high speed energy management, combined with essential Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) fundamentals.
