Upset Recovery Training Program Standards

UPRTA Approved training programs are based on knowledge gained from two decades of experience in the delivery of upset prevention & recovery training, enhanced stall/spin awareness flight instruction and advanced maneuvering flight training to professional pilots. These training programs are applicable to general aviation, corporate flight departments, and airline flight operations. UPRTA’s oversight role is guided by insistance on the highest standards towards the delivery of safe, effective Upset Prention & Recovery Training:

  • Course content and recovery techniques are directly applicable to the vast majority of fixed wing aircraft including GA, multi-engine, business jet and transport category airplanes
  • Training Program content is based on the principles defined by the International Committee for Aviation Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE) for a comprehensive training program to reduce loss of control in-flight (LOC-I) accidents
  • Core concepts are founded on a systematic process of refined building-block instruction techniques that universally stimulate accelerated learning and practical skill development
  • Instructional techniques, progress tracking and evaluation methodology ensures consistency of training between instructors and operating facilities.
