Enhance Instruction with Upset Training
Flight schools providing initial flight training impact a new pilot’s professionalism, flight discipline, and the manual handling skills they use their entire flying career. Adding UPRT during these formative years develops a further layer of valuable safety skills the pilot will use and build upon for life. A designated Part 141 flight school and with an ATO joint venture partner in Europe, APS is familiar with the qualification requirements to achieve Part 141 approval in the USA and Approved Training Organization (ATO) certification as mandated by EASA for UPRT.
- Significantly increase manual aircraft handling and airmanship skills
- Develop disciplined skills to prevent, recognize, and correctly recover from LOC-I
- Gain long-term skills, transferable between aircraft types
- Fundamentally increase overall safety
- Augment pilot proficiency and marketability
