Mesa, Arizona (PRWeb) – May 24, 2018 – Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a global provider of Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT), is pleased to award the 2018 Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Scholarship to Jake Ribbe, a student at LeTourneau University.
Jake is working toward a B.S. in Professional Flight, Maintenance Concentration. He currently works as a dispatch manager for LeTourneau University, and he has also recently completed an aviation internship with a major corporation.
Every year, APS offers its UPRT scholarship to a deserving pilot currently in flight school or just starting their professional aviation career. The Professional Pilot Upset Training course provides comprehensive UPRT, integrating academics and on-aircraft instruction to mitigate the risk of Loss of Control-Inflight (LOC-I), the number one cause of fatalities across all sectors of aviation. Properly delivered UPRT compliments certification training by ensuring pilots have a deep understanding of upset causes – with critical focus on prevention – and are trained to proficiency in the often-counterintuitive skills necessary to recover from a developed airplane upset. Moreover, this training greatly improves overall handling skills.
“Training in upset prevention and recovery is critical for pilots to be fully prepared for any unexpected, time-critical flight situation that could occur in-flight,” said Paul Ransbury, President of APS. “Providing this yearly scholarship opportunity allows us to give back to the aviation industry and accomplish the core APS purpose: to help pilots bring everyone home safely.”
