Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT)

Short (Certificate) Courses for Pilots-in-Service

Min. Academic & Professional Level

Intermediate & PPL,CPL, ATPL Holders & Flight Instructors

Course Designed for:

PPL,CPL, ATPL Holders, Airlines & GA Pilot-in-Service, Flight Instructors of Flying Clubs & Flight Simulators

An Overview:

Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) is a specialized aviation training program designed to equip pilots with the skills and knowledge necessary to recognize, prevent, and recover from unusual flight attitudes and aircraft upsets.

 An aircraft upset refers to a situation where the aircraft’s attitude (pitch, roll, and yaw) and flight path deviate significantly from the intended or normal flight parameters. UPRT is crucial for enhancing flight safety by preparing pilots to handle unexpected situations that could lead to loss of control, one of the leading causes of aviation accidents.
