FINAL UPRT EASA DECISION 2019/005/R THE NEW UPRT PILOT REGULATION

 The objective of this Decision is to address a safety and regulatory coordination issue related to aeroplane loss of control in-flight (LOC-I). The following initiatives are linked to this Decision:
— various accident safety recommendations (SRs);
— safety actions deriving from the European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS); and
— amended International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs).
The specific objective is to improve the level of safety by ensuring that pilots have the competencies to prevent LOC-I and the resilience to recover from aeroplane upsets.
On 20 December 2018, Commission Regulation (EU) 2018/1974 entered into force. Said Regulation amends Commission Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011 (the Aircrew Regulation) by introducing new requirements for upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT) for pilots in its Annex I (Part-FCL). This Decision contains the related acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM) as well as revised AMC & GM to Annex VII (Part-ORA) to the Aircrew Regulation regarding the implementation of UPRT in type rating training programmes of approved training organisations (ATOs). Additionally, this Decision amends the AMC & GM to Annex I (Definitions) and Annex III (Part-ORO) to Commission Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 (the Air OPS Regulation) in order to align the existing UPRT provisions for operator-related training with the new UPRT regulatory framework in Part-FCL.
The Annexes to the Decision are the following:
— Annex I: Amendments to the AMC & GM to Part-FCL of the Aircrew Regulation;
— Annex II: Amendments to the AMC & GM to Part-ORA of the Aircrew Regulation;
— Annex III: Amendments to the GM to Annex I (Definitions) to the Air OPS Regulation; and
— Annex IV: Amendments to the AMC & GM to Part-ORO of the Air OPS Regulation.
The amendments will be applicable from 20 December 2019 and are expected to increase safety and ensure alignment with ICAO standards. They outline the detailed content of basic, advanced and type-specific UPRT to be provided at various stages of a professional pilot’s career. The qualification requirements for instructors to provide each type of UPRT are also described.
Passengers will benefit from an improved level of safety and, specifically, from a reduction in the frequency of aeroplane accidents caused by LOC-I.

Dassault selects ECAIR to train its top Falcon instructors (TRI/TRE)

Last month Dassault company has chosen ECAIR aviation for the second time to train its top Falcon instructors (TRI/TRE).

They have received “UPRT Train the Trainer courses” during one week and has been trained to deliver both theoretical and practical UPRT.

The FSTD training was made on the latest Falcon Jet version Falcon 8X and Falcon 2000 LXS.

NEW » TRAIN THE TRAINER « ADVANCED UPRT » COURSE FOR FLIGHT INSTRUCTORS

Our new Train the trainer « Advanced UPRT » course for ATO ‘s Flight Instructors is available.

The objectives of the course is to train Flight instructors to deliver training on the « Advanced UPRT » course according to FCL.745.A using the train-to-proficiency concept.

Training should be both theoretical and practical. Practical elements should include the development of specific instructor skills, particularly in the area of teaching upset recovery techniques and strategies, whilst exploring the associated physiological and psychological aspects.

See the course page for more details.

NEW UPRT REGULATION FOR 2018

This is the executive summary of the EASA OPINION N°06/2017 concerning the new UPRT regulation for 2018.

This Opinion proposes to integrate upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT) requirements and provisions into the EU pilot training regulatory framework.

The proposed pilot training aims to deliver enhanced pilot competencies through additional upset-prevention- and upset-recovery-related theoretical knowledge (TK) and flight instruction for  the commercial aeroplane licences.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Opinion addresses a safety issue related to aeroplane loss of control in-flight (LOC-I). The following initiatives are linked to this Opinion: various accident Safety Recommendations (SRs); European Aviation Safety Plan (EASp) safety actions; and amended International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs).

This Opinion proposes to integrate upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT) requirements and provisions into the EU pilot training regulatory framework. The proposed training requirements aim to provide pilots with competencies to prevent upsets or to recover from developed upsets. The main focus of the new training standards is on pilots who intend to pursue a pilot career with a commercial airline. Such pilots would likely complete either an aeroplane airline transport pilot licence(ATPL) or a multi-crew pilot licence (MPL) integrated training course, followed by training to act as a pilot in a multi-crew environment on respective aircraft.

The proposed pilot training aims to deliver enhanced pilot competencies through additional upset-prevention- and upset-recovery-related theoretical knowledge (TK) and flight instruction for  the commercial aeroplane licences.  The newly developed advanced UPRT course,  which  is to be mandated as an addendum to ATP and MPL training courses and also to serve as a prerequisite prior to commencing the first type rating course in multi-pilot operations, is seen as an important step towards enhancing a commercial pilot’s resilience to the psychological and physiological aspects often associated with upset conditions. In support of the new standards, the proposals place greater emphasis on the training of instructors involved in the flight and synthetic training who are foreseen to deliver the various UPRT elements. For training towards non-commercial licences.
