United States Aircraft Insurance Group (USAIG) reports Aviation Performance Solutions (APS), which provides Upset Prevention and Recovery Training, is now part of its Performance Vector safety initiative.
Performance Vector is available to USAIG policyholders who insure turbine-powered aircraft or place multiple policies with USAIG. Eligible policyholders can choose annually from a range of safety programs and services, company officials note.
Eligible USAIG policyholders can select from the new Performance Vector options:
- APS-USAIG 2-day/3-flight Upset Prevention & Recovery Training course: Tuition is covered for one pilot to attend the course at APS’s Phoenix or Dallas location. Approximately eight hours of instructor-led classroom instruction are provided covering stall and airplane upset aerodynamics; precursors; recognition, prevention and recovery techniques; spin awareness and recovery techniques; and instrument upset recognition and recovery techniques. Three flights are flown in an Extra 300L aircraft with an instructor pilot.
- APS-USAIG Business Jet Upset Training Mobile Application: The app integrates information on mitigating the Loss of Control In-Flight (LOC-I) based on the Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid (AURTA). It includes an eight-module e-learning structure plus several additional modules by APS. The e-learning is augmented by tools, such as updated charts, video training and animations of more complex concepts.
