Base Upset Training Programs

Base upset training programs are designed to ensure every participant develops lifesaving skills that are transferable to their specific aircraft. The training programs aim to arm pilots of every skill level to effectively and efficiently deal with any recoverable in-flight upset. APS also offers you the ability to customize your overall training program through the use of enhancement in the areas you feel to be appropriate to your experience level, the type of airplane you fly and, in some cases, specialized missions. All of the base programs include various forms of intensified training, involving different training mediums and areas of flight operation.
