Insurance company Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has signed an agreement with flight simulation and training companies, CAE and Aviation Performance Solutions (APS), which will allow general aviation clients based in North America to increase aviation safety through a combination of an advanced training program and financial incentives embedded into the insurance purchase.
The advanced training program, addressing loss of control in-flight, has been developed by APS, a leader in upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT), and CAE, a provider of full-flight simulation training. Both companies have been collaborating to provide UPRT for business and commercial aircraft pilots.
As an incentive, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions will offer premium credits to qualifying general aviation clients, which can be used towards the price of the training courses. Both CAE and APS have discounted these courses especially for participants in this program, according to company officials.
