The European Center for Advanced Inflight Recovery (ECAIR) is the first European center for pilot skills development and research relating to aircraft upset prevention and recovery (UPRT) as well as loss of control in flight (LOC-I).
While simulators effectively teach pilots to fly within the normal flight envelope, retraining is required in relation to upset prevention and recovery from unexpected situations.
ECAIR’s courses enhance a pilot’s situational awareness and airmanship by teaching them how to recognize, avoid and if necessary recover from potentially catastrophic situations. We are already compliant with the new EASA ED-D 2015/12/R (Executive Director Decision) and with the rule making process (RMP) regarding LOC-I(RMT.0581&. 0582).
ECAIR instructors are highly experienced pilots in flight envelope exploration and upset recoveries. They are experimental test pilots with aeronautical engineering degrees or airline pilots with fighter pilot background.
