“APS has an industry-leading reputation for excellence and innovation in the general aviation upset recovery training space, both in the classroom and in practice, applying the classroom learning with customers in their fleet of aircraft in Arizona [and around the world],” stated Starr senior v-p and chief underwriting officer Kyle Sparks.
Lack of Management In-flight Prevention
APS’s said mission is to “crush the LOC-I threat globally by partnering with ‘safety champions’ to accelerate the adoption of life-saving APS upset training,” APS CEO Paul “BJ,” Ransbury stated. “Starr Insurance coverage’s Security Partnership Program is a unprecedented alternative for Aviation Efficiency Options to be on mission by partnering with Starr Aviation and its noble security program.
“We help pilots bring everyone home safely, and Starr’s solutions support aviation safety at every stage of aircraft ownership. It allows us to broaden our reach and continue to be on the forefront of saving lives.”
Providing distinctive and progressive options to its UPRT program makes APS a top-tier coaching supplier for a various set of operators. “APS is unmatched in its total integrated solution to UPRT. We have dedicated our core services for over 25 years to overcome the loss of control inflight: the number one fatal threat to every pilot on every flight,” Ransbury stated
He added, “Our solution to LOC-I has been recognized internationally for its proven, comprehensive multi-day integrated program that includes academic, on-aircraft (both piston and jet), advanced simulator, and type-specific virtual reality. APS is the only organization that has the most comprehensive solution in the industry and will contribute directly to the operational safety of Starr’s vast and differentiated customer base.”
The LOC-I risk is actual and nearly all the time deadly, APS govt v-p of requirements and compliance Clarke McNeace stated. “LOC-I is unequivocally every pilot’s number-one threat every time they are airborne. ICAO, FAA, EASA, and numerous other industry stakeholders have all acknowledged this threat and have required or recommended integrated on-aircraft, simulator, and academic UPRT to address this unique and critical skill set for every pilot.”
APS presents a complete and immersive UPRT expertise that’s adaptable to Starr’s numerous shopper base of fixed-wing plane operators starting from single-pilot piston to multi-crewed, high-performance enterprise jets. “APS provides customized fixed-wing UPRT solutions for each of the industry sectors through its ‘Every Pilot In Control Solution StandardTM,'” McNeace said. “It brings transformative, life-saving training tailored to each pilot’s operating environment and equipment. Our UPRT programs are designed with three main factors in mind: first, how the pilot operates—single pilot or crewed—and mission type; secondly, where they operate—VFR/IFR, low altitude, high altitude, etcetera; and the specific type and class of airplane they operate to minimize the gaps in their risk management of LOC-I.”

Upset Prevention and Restoration Coaching for the Enterprise Aviation Operator
In keeping with Ransbury, “For executive, corporate, business aviation, and on-demand operators (Part 135/125)—the bizav operator—the biggest challenge faced is being well behind UPRT solutions being implemented by Part 121 air carriers through the implementation of FAR 121.423 ‘Pilots – Extended Envelope Training.’”
He added, “While Part 121 operators are implementing this limited simulator-only solution, it is considerably more than what is being implemented by bizav in general. The good news is that this partnership with Starr and APS will allow far more effective and robust UPRT solutions through minor, and in some cases cost-neutral, investments in progressive, proven effective, and fully comprehensive UPRT and aviation safety.”
Decreasing danger in aviation is a precedence for insurers and operators alike. The Starr Security Partnership Program supplies a large number of choices for operators to cut back danger.
Madison stated “the program expands on their experiences and pilot skills through APS, AirCare International, and Advanced Air Crew Academy. Another benefit is in enhancing or developing our clients’ safety management system with the help of Argus, AviationManuals, or Polaris Aero to effectively manage safety and reduce losses.” Past security, Madison added, “The program will also reduce operating costs; as an example, JSSI serves to ensure standardized maintenance and reduce aircraft downtime.”
The Security Partnership Program is accessible to any Starr shopper working below Half 91 or Half 135. Starr’s Sparks stated that “a generally accepted principle is that investments in safety over the long-term lead to safer and more profitable organizations with fewer accidents, a happier workforce, and less downtime for company resources.”
He added, “Some of the Starr Safety Partners, such as JSSI, are able to deliver cost savings and expanded coverage to Starr customers due to their industry-leading capabilities. There is no premium discount for using the Starr Safety Partnership Program; the program is a Starr initiative to help the insureds and the industry foster a safer environment for operating aircraft.”
