ETC NASTAR GL-4000 Upset Recovery Device Assessed by APS


Nastar LogoAs an integral subject matter expert for the International Committee for Aviation Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE) and the Upset Prevention & Recovery Training Association (UPRTA), Paul BJ Ransbury (the APS President) had the unique opportunity to evaluate several loss of control in-flight (LOC-I) mitigation devices at the National AeroSpace Training and Research (NASTAR) center in Southampton, Pennsylvania.
NASTAR GYROLAB 4000 SimulatorOf particular interest is the capability of NASTAR to additionally address high altitude physiology and spatial disorientation challenges directly related to the LOC-I threat. This augments the measurable value offered by their GYROLAB® 4000 simulator in supporting upset recovery training efforts across the aviation training industry. The on-command presence of G forces during upset recovery profiles with the Environmental Tectonics Corporation (ETC) GL-4000 ground-based simulator offers an elevated stress level to the pilot in training, both psychologically and physiologically. This adverse stress condition during airplane upset scenarios moves toward preparing participating pilots for the real world LOC-I performance challenges not witnessed in traditional full flight simulator implementations.
