EPIC-S2An immediate and accurate pilot response is critical to prevent an airplane upset that can quickly lead to Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I). Unfortunately, general pilot training requirements do not cover the counter-intuitive and time-critical skills necessary to prevent and overcome LOC-I. For more than three decades, we’ve collaborated with aviation’s key industry leaders, safety organizations, and regulatory agencies as we have tested and refined the best practices for effective Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT). The Every Pilot in Control Solution Standard (EPIC-S2) is the resulting practical UPRT methodology incorporating the six Critical UPRT Program Implementation Factors necessary to produce an unparalleled and effective UPRT solution for every fixed-wing pilot.
