Mesa, AZ – April 4, 2023:

Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) CEO Paul ‘BJ’ Ransbury will deliver a presentation at the 2023 World Aviation Training Summit (WATS) on next-generation flight school Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT). The industry has championed properly delivered UPRT to prepare future airline pilots to comprehensively prevent the number one fatal threat they will face, Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I).

The benefits of ensuring UPRT programs meet the standards of effectiveness necessary to create resilient pilots as opposed to simply checking the boxes to meet regulatory minimums warrant consideration for every flight organization, especially during the current pilot shortage. There are dramatic differences in effectiveness between a minimum regulatory-compliant UPRT program and a truly comprehensive UPRT program that produces highly competent pilots.   

“Our breadth of multi-decade expertise teaching UPRT to pilots of all experience levels has confirmed that comprehensive UPRT is critical to pilots no matter where they are in their career,” said APS CEO Paul BJ Ransbury. “In addition, effectively delivered UPRT at the ab initio level pays immeasurable dividends throughout a pilot’s career in terms of awareness, capability, and manual flight operations proficiency, resulting in a pilot who will enter the workforce not only with advanced skills to overcome aviation’s number one fatal threat, but also with a strongly embedded sense of safety culture and excellence.”
