In the last decade, it’s been recognised that loss of control in an aircraft is one of the most dangerous risk factors, leading to fatal accidents in commercial air transport, hence a larger number of loss of human life.
For this reason, the prevention of losing control of an aircraft in one of the principal priorities in the Pilot training advanced course UPRT Upset Prevention and Recovery Training.
The training includes certain requirements in order to better prepare for certain jeopardizing situations.
In a real flight with an aircraft is it possible to expose pilots to these situations where psychological factors of losing control of the aircraft can be experienced.
It’s important to understand that the
UPRT TRAINING IS NOT ACROBATIC TRAINING.
The object of the UPRT training is to familiarise the pilots with possible situations that could arise in flight in different scenarios.
This allows the pilots to acquire the necessary knowledge and competencies to be able to anticipate and avoid loss of control in flight (LOC-I Loss of Control in Flight) in certain situations and to develop the techniques to be able to recover from adverse situations that may arise.
The UPRT course had been obligatory since 20 December 2019, as per the European ruling EASA FCL 745. All Pilots who wish to carry out the first qualification for an airline company must do this, as it’s an indispensable requirement in order to access airlines worldwide.
The UPRT training is obligatory for the ATPL, CPL(A) Courses and MPL.
The advanced UPRT course will train the candidate on theory and practical levels to:
Specific UPRT theory training:
* Upon completion of the course, the students will receive a certificate from our E-ATO 190 for successfully completing the course along with its corresponding official certificate.
