UPSET PREVENTION & RECOVERY TRAINING – MODULE 1

UPSET PREVENTION & RECOVERY TRAINING – MODULE 1

The objective of this course is to help flight crews acquire the required knowledge, skills and attitudes to prevent or recover from a developing or developed upset. Crews need to understand the danger of ignoring these signs, as well as the importance of taking immediate and appropriate action to mitigate the threat. Training to prevent, recognise and recover from airplane upsets is about developing knowledge and the skill sets that make pilots aware of the threat and prompt them to initiate timely action. Prevention training prepares flight crews to avoid incidents whereas recovery training prepares flight crews to prevent an accident once an upset condition has occurred.

This training is in accordance with: ICAO amendments to Annex 1, Annex 6 and PANS TRAINING, EASA issued an EASA ED (Executive Director) Decision mandating UPRT for all operators as of May 04, 2016.
