USAIG added Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) as a member of the Performance Vector safety initiative, which delivers forward-looking safety support to policyholders who insure turbine-powered aircraft or place multiple policies with USAIG. Eligible policyholders can choose from a range of safety-enhancing programs and services, such as APS’s upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT), a program created using the latest ICAOand FAA guidance, best practices and standards. APS combines multiple flight sorties of practical UPRTinstruction with focused academics to develop pilots’ ability to recognize, prevent and recover from virtually any recoverable airplane upset, unusual attitude or escalating stall/spin condition.

USAIG will cover the tuition for one pilot to attend the course at APS’s Phoenix or Dallas location. The course includes approximately eight hours of ground school on stall and airplane upset aerodynamics; precursors; recognition, prevention and recovery techniques; spin awareness and recovery techniques and instrument upset recognition and recovery techniques. Ground training is followed by three flights in an Extra 300L with an APSUPRT instructor pilot.
