UPSET PREVENTION AND RECOVERY TRAINING

Our Upset Prevention and Recovery Training course (UPRT) helps flight crew to prepare for the skills training in the simulator by learning about recovery techniques. Type specific add-ons for Boeing 737 and ATR 42/72 are also available.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

Flight Crew
Instructors

DURATION

The course is designed to be completed in average of 3 hours.

Causes and contributing factors to upsets

  • Environmental (CAT, mountain wave, wind shear, micro bust, thunderstorm, wake turbulence, icing)
  • Pilot induced
  • Mechanical (airplane systems)
  • Safety review of accidents and incidents relating to airplane upsets

G load and energy awareness

  • Positive/negative/increasing/decreasing G-loads
  • Lateral G awareness (side slip)
  • G load management
  • Negative G
  • Flight envelope
  • Kinetic energy vs. potential energy vs. chemical energy (power)
  • Relationship between pitch, power and performance
  • Performance and effects of differing power plants
  • Manual and automation inputs for guidance and control
  • Management of go-arounds from various stages during the approach
  • Automation management
  • Proper use of rudder
  • Full versus small control input
  • Counter intuitive control inputs
  • Center of gravity and mass

 

 

Recognition

  • Upset cues
  • Pitch/power/roll/yaw
  • Effective monitoring and cross check
  • Stall protection and cues
  • Criteria for identifying stalls and upsets

System malfunctions

  • Flight control defects
  • Engine failure
  • Instrument failures
  • Loss of reliable airspeed
  • Automation failures
  • Fly-by-wire protection degradation
  • Stall protection system failures including icing alerting systems

Human factors & CRM

  • TEM
  • Situational awareness
