Advanced UPRT course

Advanced UPRT course

Your Advanced UPRT training will need to be carried out with an Air Training Organisation (ATO) which holds the respective approval for the type of licence you require. Wings Alliance works with a network of ATOs who specialise in Advanced UPRT and hold single and multi approvals for either or both the UK CAA or EASA.

Advanced UPRT course objectives include:

  • 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
  • The recovery techniques used during the course will where possible, be compatible with techniques typically used for transport category aeroplanes

Pre-entry requirements:

There are no pre-entry or licensing requirements to commence this course.

We would recommend you complete this course after your Commercial Pilot’s Licence (CPL) course, as the Advanced UPRT is the prerequisite for the Airline Pilot Standards Multi Crew Cooperation (APS MCC) course.

Course outline:

There is no difference between the UK CAA or EASA Advanced UPRT certificates. The course involves 3 days of training typically compromising of:

  • At least 3 hours of flight instruction with a qualified instructor on an appropriate training aircraft
  • At least 5 hours of theoretical instruction
  • Pre-flight briefings and debriefings

Flight instruction content:

  • Understanding speed, attitude and angle of attack relationships
  • The effect of g-load on aeroplane performance, including stall events at different attitudes and airspeeds
  • Aerodynamic indications of a stall including buffeting, loss of control authority, and inability to arrest a descent
  • The physiological effects of different g-loads between -1 and 2.5G and the surprise of the startle effect
  • Training in techniques to recover from:
    • Stall events
    • Incipient spinning
    • Spiral dives
    • Nose high at different bank angles
    • Nose low at different bank angles
  • Training to develop resilience and to be able to employ mitigation strategies of the startle effect.
