One of the largest causes of aviation accidents and incidents is pilots loss of control in the immediate aftermath of an emergency. EASA have now recognised this - we did years ago, and have been delivering this course since 2013! By April 2018 this training will be a mandatory requirement prior to commencing an initial multi-crew type rating, just like the MCC is! However EASA have now stated;
"In respect of issuing EASA licences in accordance with Annex I to Commission Regulation (EU) No 1778/2011, aeroplane upset prevention and recovery training commenced prior to April 2018 under the regulatory oversight of a Member State (e.g. UK CAA) may be given credit until 8th April 2019. Credit given shall be determined by the Member State (e.g. UK CAA) to which the pilot applies for the issue of a licence, rating or certificate on the basis of a recommendation from an Approved Training Organisation that provides the course."
This is excellent news for you, the customer, as charges will still be realistic before full regulatory oversight. We are in a unique position to be able to offer JOC/MCC/UPRT, all under one roof, all owned and operated by us!
Our UPRT-Aeroplane Course covers the following theoretical and practical elements;
+ Understand Angle of Attack (AoA)
+ Understand relationship of AoA to speed, attitude and control position
+ Investigate solutions for perception of AoA
+ Discuss methods to manage AoA
+ Experience attitudes not typically seen in commercial aviation
+ Develop techniques for management of high alpha flight
+ Understand implications of yaw stability through manual control
+ Understand the aerodynamic principles of large swept wing aircraft
+ Understand the theory of pitch control with under wing mounted turbofan engines
The course is delivered in our own Slingsby Firely T67M's, G-OCRM, G-ECRM or G-UCRM. All of our UPRT-Ai's are Boeing 737 type rated and aerobatic instuctors.
Our Upset Prevention & Recovery Training - UPRT-Aeroplane course will focus on keeping you safe in the air and confident to deal with any flight situation or attitude you may find yourself in.
The two day course comprises of:
+ Comprehensive ground briefings pre and post flight - totalling 5 hours.
+ 4 - 1.0 flights in the Slingsby Firefly T67M.
+ UPRT-Aeroplane Certificate of Course Completion.
We offer a Combined JOC/MCC/UPRT-Aeroplane Course that will cover all needs prior to application of a multi-crew position
PLEASE NOTE - our current price is £1495, however, when EASA implement full regulatory approvals in April 2018 it will have an impact on our charge, naturally increasing in line with regulator charges!
