Mesa, Ariz.-based APS Emergency Maneuver Training recently started offering jet upset recovery training in full-motion simulators to teach pilots how to survive in-flight loss of control. The two-day, three-mission simulator course–conducted in a level-D Embraer ERJ 145, level-C Beechcraft King Air 200 or level-C Cessna Citation device–is modeled around the recommended training procedures and training exercises specified in the “FAA Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid.” The course costs between $3,475 and $4,100 per pilot, depending on the simulator chosen. APS said it will also continue to offer upset recovery training courses in real aircraft.
