Upset Prevention Recovery Training (UPRT)
UPRT has overtaken Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) as the leading cause of fatal aircraft accidents worldwide. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) have made UPRT one of their "hot button" issues in an effort to reduce the number of fatalities. This module covers the academic principles published in the Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid developed by the Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Association.
The NBAA Management Guide (section 2.4) recommends advanced flight crew training above and beyond the regulatory requirements of the FAA as a best practice. That recommendation specifically cites Upset Recovery Training. NBAA recommends classroom (eLearning) combined with aircraft/simulator instruction.
