A: Yes. The training you experience in an Extra 330LX is fully transferable. If you can maneuver and recover this high-performance aircraft, you will be able to correct your aircraft's unusual attitude or upset situation inflight. If you can safely execute basic aerobatics, you will be familiar and prepared for every unusual attitude.

The 3-flight syllabus includes stalls, spins, aerobatics, upset and unusual attitude recognition and recovery. Each flight is videotaped and available for use in the debrief.
Our Unusual Attitude Training (UAT) program includes a 1-hour brief, a 1-hour flight and a 1-hour debrief. The UAT program covers a full stall series, basic aerobatics and unusual attitude recognition and recovery. The UAT program can also be conducted as a two flight syllabus.
