What is WATS?
The World Airline Training Symposium (WATS) is the world’s largest gathering of aviation training professionals serving airlines, regulators, training providers and training industry. The event takes place yearly and is comprised of several conferences which address the current and future training issues affecting airline related industries. In addition to networking and exhibitor opportunities, attendees can learn about and discuss the latest training technologies and techniques to improve operational safety and efficiency for pilot training, cabin crew training, and maintenance training.
APS attends WATS as a speaker and/or exhibitor to discuss the most current information on Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) and related safety issues affecting the airline industry. As a UPRT provider for airlines, including major airlines such as United and Delta, APS is an industry leader and trusted resource regarding the best practices for improving safety through mitigating the risk of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I), the leading cause of fatalities in commercial aviation.
APS Presentation at WATS 2019: Proper Upset Training for Airline Pilot Cadets
Recent changes in pilot licensing recommendations by ICAO and requirements for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) at airlines by the FAA, EASA and other Civil Aviation Authorities reflect the recognition that Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) is a growing threat for commercial airlines worldwide. Actually mitigating the LOC-I threat is impervious to minimal regulatory solutions that are essentially name changes to what has already been done for decades as can be seen in EASA UPRT solutions. Pilot training that effectively provides the ACTUAL knowledge and skills pilots need to prevent undesired aircraft states and safely recognize, prevent or recover from unexpected upset events is an essential part of any flight training program devoted to mitigating threats and creating resilient pilots with required competency beyond the normal operating envelope. Turn-key solutions exist for airlines to implement tested and proven UPRT efficiently and cost effectively.
