Delta Airlines has partnered with Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) to prepare 16 flight simulator instructors to design fleet-specific UPRT for 8 jet airplane types. Delta is the first major US carrier to integrate this specialized training from APS. This training will eventually provide more than 11,000 pilots with skills and knowledge to prevent an upset from developing as well as ensure correct recovery in the event of an upset. Jon Tovani, a Delta Captain and managing director of Delta flight training, defends the necessity of UPRT for US-based professional airline pilots who believe the reliability of electronic and automated flight control systems are sufficient to overcome the loss of control in-flight (LOC-I) threat. He cites scenarios from all over the world as evidence, as well as Delta specific examples, to defend his case to pursue industry-vetted and approved training as pioneered by APS, the global leader in upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT) solutions.
