USAIG Performance Vector UPRT Benefit
The APS-USAIG Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) program generates durable, life-saving skills by developing pilots’ ability to recognize, avoid and recover from virtually any airplane upset, unusual attitude or stall/spin entry condition. The customized 2-day/3-flight course is available for USAIG customers through USAIG’s Performance Vector safety initiative, available to qualifying USAIG policyholders. Through the program, APS instructors deliver a proven academic curriculum integrated with three flights in an Extra 300L aircraft to embed core pilot skills that translate directly to any fixed-wing aircraft.
