Pilots practice recovery techniques under exposure to G-forces.

The Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT) course increases pilot skills in recognizing and avoiding Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) situations that lead to aircraft upsets, the No. 1 cause of fatalities across all levels of aviation. Using our unique G-producing flight simulators, pilots apply their skills by using the aircraft’s full flight envelope for that once in a lifetime maneuver.
This 1.5-day course is specifically tailored for business aviators and those pilots wishing to seek a career in business or commercial aviation.
