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.
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.
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.

Air Austral has selected our company to train their TRI/TRE for their new company B787 Dreamliner . This new training has completed our large Airline specific UPRT Boeing & Airbus courses.
ECAIR has provided UPRT for Airlines TRI/TRE operating ATR/A320/A330/B737/
Last December the French DGAC has selected our company to provide a specific “Train the Trainer Course” for two inspectors.
This course took place in Paris and included Academic refresher and practical UPRT exercises both maneuver-based and scenario-based exercises on A330 type specific FSTD.
We have been extremely proud to provide them our new UPRT “Train the Trainer Course”.
This high level course has been specially created by our Test pilot instructor’s team including all mandatory items but also including their high test pilot experience which can definitely help to better understand a lot of “case studies” and consequently better explain how to prevent and avoid upsets… This is an outstanding course you can find only in test pilot schools!
ECAIR Aviation gives you the opportunity to be trained by experts in UPRT and can train your core group instructors to build and deliver your in house courses…
We have trained already many Airlines and Business aviation companies and developed with them an operator‘s type-specific UPRT programs for their fleet. These programs have been approved by their authority.
ECAIR Aviation has been invited by EBAA to its yearly Annual Safety conference in Copenhagen. A vast array of topical matters has been addressed and discussed amongst panels and with a line-up of specialists.
It brought together senior aviation professionals from regulators, manufacturers, business aviation operators and trade bodies from all over the world.
ECAIR Aviation was there to expose and explain the implementation of the new EASA UPRT regulation (ED-D 2015/012/R & NPA 2015/13) especially for NCC operators.
