Professional Pilot Upset Training

Course Description

Developed for professional instrument-rated pilots, this course immersively ingrains the vital skills to recognize, prevent, and correctly recover from LOC-I to include all-weather environments, through improved manual handling, aeronautical decision making, risk management, and overall proficiency. Through ground, flight, and post-flight instruction, you’ll receive a deep understanding of stalls, unusual attitudes, and fully developed spins, and how to solve these conditions through proven prevention and recovery techniques in both VMC and IMC conditions.

Course Elements

  • 3-Day Course
  • 4 Flights (including an extended flight addressing instrument recovery and spin awareness)

Available Enhancements

High-Altitude Jet Enhancement

Fly the S211 or similar jet to gain upset training augmenting core UPRT skills in a high-speed, swept-wing jet environment while integrating modern flight deck technologies. Available as a substitute for flying the Extra 300L in your UPRT course or as an additional add-on UPRT flight in a jet.

Advanced Spin Enhancement

Augment core UPRT knowledge and skills with a customized advanced spin awareness, prevention, and recovery session focusing on aerodynamic factors, dynamic properties, certification impacts, various recovery alternatives, and specific details related to the aircraft you typically fly.

Advanced Simulator Enhancement

The advanced multi-engine jet simulator session for crew members or single pilots is designed to transfer UPRT skills learned in aircraft sessions to transport category aircraft, taking into account the aircraft’s limited visibility, heavier control forces, lower pitch and roll rates, and reduced structural margins.

Formation Enhancement

This introduction to formation principles, techniques, and flight discipline is ideal for pilots of any aircraft type who perform flight test chases, air-to-air photography, cross-country ferry flights with multiple aircraft, or those who want to experience the manual handling challenges inherent to maneuvering relative to another aircraft.

Aerobatics Enhancement

Enhance your UPRT skills with basic aerobatics instruction designed to increase aircraft handling. Typical maneuvers include various rolls, loops, half Cuban eights, and spins, as well as the hammerhead turn, Immelmann, split S, tail slide, avalanche, and other optional freestyle aerobatics.
