Aviation Performance Solutions (APS), a leader in upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT), has broken ground on a new 25,000 sq ft headquarters and a 40,000 sq ft support facility located on a 4.5 acre premium lot at the north end of the airfield at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport. Slated to open late 2020, the new facilities will allow APS to meet increasing demand for UPRT with streamlined operations and the increased space for aircraft and simulators necessary to continue to offer the most robust and comprehensive UPRT programmes available globally.
Features of these new upset training facilities, in addition to the expansive hangar additions, include dedicated operational training areas with expanded classrooms, briefing rooms, flight simulation, integrated multi-media technologies, indoor/outdoor lounge and deck areas for customers, and expanded centralised business areas for APS's growing team of experts.
“Our new world headquarters' facilities in Arizona expand our team's ability to accomplish our company vision to help pilots bring everyone home safely,” says APS CEO Paul Ransbury. “As demand for UPRT continues to rise, APS leads the industry with programmes, facilities, training platforms and elite instructional expertise to assure leading-edge, quality-assured and standardised upset training that comprehensively reduces every pilot's risk of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I), aviation's number one cause of fatalities.”
As UPRT provider to two major US air carriers, international airlines, military and government agencies, flight schools and corporate flight departments large and small, APS is excited to break ground on these new facilities to serve thousands of pilots annually.
