Baseline Syllabus - We Will Tailor Our Training To Your Requirements!
The Prevailance Aerospace UPRT course trains flight crews to recognize and recover from unusual attitudes and aircraft upsets. Each course includes three hours of flight academics dedicated to the following subject matter:
- The Threat of Upset and Loss of Control Inflight (LOC-I)
- Transfer of Skills from the Extra 300 Series Aircraft to Your Aircraft
- History of Upset Recovery Development
- Definition of Aircraft Upset
- Phases of Dangerous Flight Regimes & Out-of-Control Flight
- Causes of Aircraft Upset – Environmental, Aircraft and Human Factors
- Mishap Statistics & Analysis
- Upset and LOC-I Aerodynamics – High Altitude & Swept Wing Theory
- Upset and LOC-I Awareness and Prevention
- Composite Upset Recovery Procedure and Techniques
- Case Studies
Flight 1 – Intro to advanced handling characteristics. Designed to familiarize students with the capabilities and limitations of the airframe and give them an opportunity to acclimate to a dynamic flight environment. This flight includes stalls and an introduction to basic aerobatics. Aerobatic flight is an essential tool to build spatial orientation and aircraft handling skills.
Flight 2 – Review of basic aerobatics, a more detailed analysis of unusual attitudes and a demonstrated upright spin. Flight emphasis will be placed on accelerated stalls and nose high/low unusual attitudes and recovery. Unusual Attitude Training (UAT) will be both visual and on instruments.
Flight 3 – Advanced Handling Characteristics, Spins and Aerobatic Review. This flight will introduce students to spin types, spin and spiral recovery techniques and flat spin awareness/recovery. Students will hone their aviation skills in this dynamic capstone flight.One hour of flight time is anticipated to complete the full sequence of events for each flight. Each flight will be followed by a debrief focused on skills development. Wing, tail and cockpit video are also available to facilitate learning. This course may be taken as a Part 61 or Part 141 course of instruction.
Focused Skill-Set Areas
Knowledge – Our Upset Recovery and Unusual Attitudes Training introduces the aerodynamics, recovery procedures and human factors behind LOC-I situations.
Spatial Orientation – Flight training in our specialized Extra 330LX introduces and reinforces basic dynamic airmanship that can erode over time while flying automated aircraft.
Unusual Attitude Recovery – Scenario-based UAT is practiced to proficiency in our unlimited aerobatic aircraft so that the sensations associated with actual flight are transferable to your specific aircraft. Simulators cannot duplicate the associated physiological demands!
Spin Recognition and Recovery – Accident analysis proves that the skills lacking in most aviators are those required to prevent and recover from spins. We provide safe and professional ground and flight instruction that is invaluable to the recognition and recovery of LOC-I situations.
