lancement formation UPRT APA Training

This week marks the launch of our first UPRT course! This training module is delivered as part of our ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot Licence) courses. Students will be able to train on TB30 epsilons aircraft.

The UPRT (Upset Prevention Recovery Training) allows students to experience, among other things, the attitudes of strong nose-up or nose-down, unusual bank, symmetrical and asymmetrical stall. Students will learn how to identify these situations, avoid provoking or exacerbating them, and how to recover from them correctly in order to re-establish stabilised controlled flight.

The UPRT training includes 5 hours of theoretical instruction on the behaviour of aircraft when flown at their aerodynamic limits, and 4 training flights (3 hours) of UPRT “advanced” exercise, in dual control with an Flight Instructor (FI). Since 2020, the UPRT is mandatory for all pilots wishing to start a Type or Class Rating.
