Aviation Performance Solutions delivers rigorous upset prevention and recovery training solutions to more than 1,000 pilots annually. APS primarily trains professional pilots from business aviation, government agency and airline pilot career fields. The necessity of durable, capable and accurate attitude information in the highly dynamic domain of all-attitude flight operations is crucial to both training quality and business success. The Mid-Continent Standby Attitude Module (SAM®) passed intensive quality assurance upset recovery testing profiles at APS with flying colors, outpacing the comparable instrumentation of other leading industry providers. SAM® is a solid-state, self-contained instrument that provides attitude, altitude, airspeed and slip information to the pilot during normal operation or in the case of primary instrument failure. SAM's small size and selectable orientation (horizontal and vertical) allows for flexible cockpit design and installation.

“The Mid-Continent SAM® is an impressive piece of safety equipment. We have put the device through it’s paces in several thousand unusual attitude excursions over the past two months of testing. The SAM® is the only device we tested that we can fully endorse and use without reservation or limitation in our upset recovery training program,” said Paul BJ Ransbury, president of Aviation Performance Solutions, 4-time Aerobatic Master Certified Flight Instructor, former military fighter pilot and commercial airline pilot. “Loss of control in-flight is the leading cause of fatalities in commercial and general aviation worldwide. Pilots must know and understand their flight attitude in an airplane upset event to effectively intervene and stop the situation from progressing into control loss”.
“Mid-Continent is dedicated to improving safety of flight operations at all levels of aviation. It is rewarding for our team to partner with Aviation Performance Solutions knowing the integration of the SAM® in APS training services is contributing to saving lives and reducing the risk of loss of control in-flight for many private and professional pilots,” said
