Upset Prevention & Recovery Training

Become a Safer Pilot

Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) is the “new kid on the block” when it comes to flight training.

Now officially part of Commercial Pilot Training, it makes good sense to get to grips with unusual attitudes and their recoveries (including the theory) before it happens to you by accident!

Our Yak52 platform is an excellent teacher, since it can be encouraged to mis-behave in certain flight regimes – which we can put to good use for training in this area.


There are no pre-requisites required for this course.
