The objectives of the Advanced UPRT (FCL.745.A) course are to train the candidate to:
- Understand and manage the psychological and physiological aspects related to aircraft upsets
- Develop the required competencies and resilience in order to apply the appropriate recovery techniques in an aircraft upset
This course focuses on training the candidates on the physiological and psychological impacts of Aircraft Upsets in realistic scenarios. Even with the light and agile aircraft used during the course, the training covers all aspects of the flight and acquaints the trainees with everything that occurs within the flight envelope.
This allows trainees to gain the required knowledge and competencies to ANTICIPATE and AVOID loss of control on inflight (LOC-I) situations and to develop the necessary techniques to recover from upsets should they occur.
Please note that UPRT training is NOT aerobatics training.

Who should take and Advanced UPRT course?
From 20th December 2019, the Advanced UPRT course becomes mandatory for all pilots who wish to enroll in a Type Rating (MPA or HPSPA) course.
Why was the Advanced UPRT course introduced?
Since the last decade, aeroplane upset or loss of control have been identified among the major risk factors that could lead to fatal accidents in commercial air transport operations and its prevention became a strategic priority in Europe and on a global level. This included new training requirements to better prepare pilots for adverse situations of aircraft upset and loss of control.
