ADVANCED UPSET PREVENTION AND RECOVERY TRAINING

The Advanced UPRT training meets the requirements of EASA FCL.745.A

Theory training

The theory training begins with distance learning theory, roughly 3-4h, before practical training. Then, there is a 1h instructor-led lesson followed by practical training.

Practical training

The practical training is made up of 3h of flight training, divided into 2 lessons.

Location:

Borlänge, Dalarna in Sweden (ESSD)


Prerequisites

  • Hold a valid license

  • Medical

  • Hold a valid SEP(land)-rating

Due to the nature of the flights, potential weather constraints is a determining factor of the course length. Many students finish in 1-2 days.

Accommodation is available.

Course description

The Advanced UPRT course goal is to give you the tools necessary to recover from various upset situations and create an understanding of the physiological effects of such events. The course follows the EASA guidelines for Advanced UPRT. All the necessary elements are performed during two flight lessons (3 hours) combined with a few hours of theoretical training. The instructor emphasis will be to build student resilience with regard to surprise and startle effects, as well as increasing stick and rudder skills in upset situations.

The flight training will consist of at 3 hours of flight training to allow the student to cover all the necessary maneuvers. 

Practical flight exercises:

  • Introduction flight
  • Stalls
  • Abnormal attitudes
  • Spins

 

We conduct the flight training in either our Slingsby Firefly or DA20. They both fulfill the A-UPRT requirements according to EASA FCL.745.A.

Why choose the Slingsby Firefly if it costs more? 
The Slingsby Firefly is an aerobatic aircraft which can perform maneuvers that the DA20 cannot. This will enhance your training by exposing you to significantly more advanced situations. You'll get even better skills and understanding of how to prevent and recover from aircraft upsets and undesired aircraft states.

The theoretical training portion of the course consists of a few hours of Advanced UPRT knowledge instruction (distance theory). The student also needs to complete an aircraft technical test before course completion.

Theoretical knowledge:

  • Aerodynamics and notable incidents/accidents in large aircraft

  • Aerodynamics in the training aircraft

  • Physio- and psychological effects during an upset

  • Coping strategies

  • Procedures for upset recovery

There is no skill test after course completion. The student will receive a course completion certificate and a logbook entry issued by the ATO Head of Training, proving the privileges gained by the training course.
