Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) is hosting the 2021 Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) Safety Summit for Professional Pilots Worldwide next Tuesday via LinkedIn Live. The free virtual event aims to help reduce the number of loss of control in-flight (LOC-I) mishaps, which are currently the leading cause of fatal aircraft accidents.
APS has put together a program to be delivered by aviation safety experts from the NTSB, Airbus, Alaska Airlines, and Wyvern, among others. Session topics include extended envelope simulator training, business aviation UPRT program development, the use of lower-technology training devices, instructor qualification and training, and emerging training technologies such as virtual reality. Other topics include human factors and a safety leader’s view of LOC-I accidents and training.
More than 3,300 attendees from around the world have already registered for the summit. Professional pilots are the primary audience, but flight department managers, safety officers, regulators, and anyone else with an interest in flight safety or training can register for this event.
