Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) will host its annual Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) safety summit next week for professional pilots. The theme of this year’s event—to be held on Wednesday—is “Transforming Low Experience to High Aviation Safety.”

"The 2022 UPRT Safety Summit for Professional Pilots Worldwide addresses growing challenges associated with the ever-lowering pilot experience levels in commercial flight operations as the industry faces an unprecedented global pilot shortage," said APS CEO Paul “B.J.” Ransbury. "This event, presented by experts that know, will be of immense value to pilots, flight department leaders, aviation consultants, and anyone involved with professional flight operations."

APS, which specializes in UPRT programs, will facilitate the event live on social media. Topics include a keynote session titled “Tomorrow's Professional Pilots Require Upset Training Fluency” by Danny Hull, United Airlines' senior manager of training development and support. Hull is a leader at United’s Aviate Academy in Arizona. Other speakers include USAIG director of aviation safety programs Paul Ratte and Commscope director of aviation and former NBAA Safety Committee chair Jeff Wofford, in addition to several other industry UPRT experts.

The event will also be recorded and made available to registered attendees.
