Upset Prevention & Recovery Training

Why Train with APS

APS Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) is comprehensive pilot training designed to help you prevent the #1 fatal threat to air safety – Loss of Control In-Flight (LOC-I). Our comprehensive courses ingrain the time-critical, counter-intuitive skills necessary to prevent or, if necessary, recover from life-threatening airplane upsets. Where few specific industry upset training provider guidelines or standards exist, APS provides evidence-based training that adheres to the Every Pilot In Control Solution Standard (EPIC-S2), providing the safest, most effective upset training available today.

EPIC-S2An immediate and accurate pilot response is critical to prevent an airplane upset that can quickly lead to Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I). Unfortunately, general pilot training requirements do not cover the counter-intuitive and time-critical skills necessary to prevent and overcome LOC-I.  For more than three decades, we’ve partnered with aviation’s key industry leaders, safety organizations, and regulatory agencies testing and refining the best practices for effective Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT). We put it all together to provide pilots with the critical skills required to prevent or, if necessary, overcome an airplane upset. Our Every Pilot in Control Solution Standard (EPIC-S2) is the resulting practical UPRT methodology incorporating the six Critical UPRT Program Implementation Factors necessary to produce an unparalleled and effective UPRT solution for every fixed-wing pilot.
