UPSET PREVENTION
RECOVERY TRAINING

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.

Tailored for business or commercial aviators

The “startle factor” and increasing G-forces hinder and progressively degrade pilot responsiveness during an upset, reducing the likelihood of an effective recovery. By incorporating a G-producing business jet simulator into the training curriculum, the NASTAR Center provides a physiologically taxing environment for pilots to identify their individual stress response and apply the correct techniques to recover an aircraft quickly and safely

Upset prevention and recovery training for Part 135 and Part 91 pilots

The NASTAR Center's ATFS can simulate any phase of flight
                    and features a realistic, two-seat commercial cockpit

Full flight envelope of an aircraft

Using our ATFS, trainees actually get to feel what it is like to recover an upset airplane and apply their skills within the full flight envelope of the aircraft. The ATFS can simulate any phase of flight and features a realistic, two-seat commercial cockpit.
