What Sets APS Apart

We Help Pilots Bring Everyone Home Safely

Modernized Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) is being adopted worldwide based on breakthrough guidance issued by regulatory agencies (see ICAO, FAA, EASA). While regulatory agencies tend to implement improvements from the standpoint of minimum change, many progressive operators want to do it right and overcome the threat of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) – the #1 fatal threat to every pilot on every flight in every type of fixed-wing flight operation. Find out how APS leads the industry on proven effective, long lasting, and universally transferable UPRT for professional pilots.


5 Ways APS Leads the Industry

Proven System

APS’s  Proven Upset Training System has Saved 100s of Lives…

APS UPRT Instructors

Elite Instructors

APS Instructors are the Most Elitely Trained and Qualified Worldwide…

Training with instructors that have vast all-attitude experience paired with professional duties as an advanced instructor pilot is just the first step. APS takes these already-top-of-the-industry instructors and runs them through an intensive 5-week APS-Certified UPRT Instructor Pilot Upgrade Program (IPUG). APS UPRT IPUG graduates are mentored by senior APS UPRT check airmen for a full year working full-time before moving on to the simulator UPRT IPUG, and then another full year before being upgraded to deliver on-aircraft high and low altitude jet upset training. There is no other UPRT provider with more experienced UPRT-specialized instructors than APS; moreover, every APS UPRT instructor is a Master CFI.

World-class Facilities

World-class Facilities are Designed to Optimize the UPRT Learning Experience…

There is simply no comparison in training value when UPRT is conducted at a training facility dedicated to solving the Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) threat for every participating pilot. APS Headquarters in Arizona represents the pinnacle UPRT training facility worldwide with academic, on-aircraft (piston and jet), and simulator training platforms for all classes of fixed-wing airplanes in one central location. While getting UPRT from a ‘traveling roadshow’ might feel easier, participants get distracted, the weather is unreliable, and the pilot availability is uncertain. APS has five locations on three continents serving the global aviation training market. Have a look at APS’s World Headquarters, where we have invested millions of dollars to ensure you and your team have optimum training experiences.

Customized Solutions

APS Provides the Widest Variety of Customized Upset Training Solutions…

Simply put; there is no single solution to overcoming the threat of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I). That is why APS integrates every industry-specified training platform in its full UPRT solutions. As specifically structured in ICAO’s recent release of Doc 10011 Manual on Aeroplane Upset Prevention and Recovery Training, the most effective UPRT solutions necessarily require the integration of academic (web-based and instructor lead), on-aircraft, and simulator resources.

APS Has 25 Years Perfecting Transferable UPRT Skills for All Fixed-Wing Pilots…
