Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT)

Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) Course in accordance with FCL.745.A

UPRT Course Information

The British Aerobatic Academy run airline focused upset recovery courses helping to give pilots the skill to recognise and recover from unusual attitudes. From 20 December 2019, commercial pilots must have attended and passed such a course before starting their first type rating.

UPRT Course Breakdown

The advanced UPRT course is designed to meet the requirements of Part-FCL 745.A

The course comprises:

  • 5 hours of theoretical knowledge instruction;
  • pre-flight briefings and post-flight debriefings;
  • 3 hours of dual flight instruction with a suitably qualified FI(A) ref FCL.915(e)
  • On completion of the UPRT course, applicants will be issued with a certificate of course completion by the British Aviation Academy.

UPRT Course Objectives

  • To understand how to cope with the physiological and psychological aspects of dynamic upsets in aeroplanes;
  • To develop the necessary competence and resilience to be able to apply appropriate recovery techniques during upsets.
  • Emphasise physiological and psychological effects of an upset and develop strategies to mitigate those effects;
  • The recovery techniques used during the course will where possible, be compatible with techniques typically used for transport category aeroplanes.

UPRT Theoretical Knowledge

  • A review of basic aerodynamics typically applicable to aeroplane upsets in transport category aeroplanes, including case studies of incidents involving potential or actual upsets.
  • Aerodynamics relevant to the aeroplane and exercises used in the practical training, including differences to aerodynamics
  • Possible physiological and psychological effects of an upset, including surprise and startle effect;
  • Strategies to develop resilience and mitigate startle effect; and memorising the appropriate procedures and techniques for upset recovery. 

UPRT Flight Instruction

Exercises to demonstrate:

  1. The relationship between speed, attitude and AoA;
  2.  The effect of g-load on aeroplane performance, including stall events at different attitudes and airspeeds;
  3. Aerodynamic indications of a stall including buffeting, loss of control authority and inability to arrest a descent;
  4. The physiological effects of different g-loads between -1 and 2.5G; and surprise and the startle effect;
  5. Training in techniques to recover from:
    1. Nose high at various bank angles
    2. Nose low at various bank angles
    3. Spiral dives
    4. Stall events; and incipient spin
  6.  Training to develop resilience and to employ strategies to mitigate the startle effect.
