What is UPRT?

UPRT stands for aeroplane ‘upset prevention and recovery training’ and constitutes a combination of theoretical knowledge and flying training with the aim of providing flight crew with the required competencies to both prevent and to recover from situations in which an aeroplane unintentionally exceeds the parameters for line operation or training (aeroplane upsets).

With the objective to introduce different ‘levels’ of UPRT at various stages of a professional pilot’s career, EASA has published its Opinion No 06/2017 and is currently revising the existing acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM) published with regard to the provisions of Annex I (Part-FCL) to Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011 as follows:

  • Basic UPRT will exercises to be integrated in all CPL and ATPL training courses as well as the MPL training course.
  • An ‘advanced UPRT course’ will include at least 5 hours of theoretical instruction as well as at least 3 hours of dual flight instruction in an aeroplane, with the aim to enhance the student’s resilience to the psychological and physiological aspects associated with upset conditions.
  • Class- or type-related UPRT during class or type rating training will address the specificities of the relevant class or type of aeroplane.


Advanced UPRT course
The ‘Advanced UPRT course’ as decribed in part FCL.745.A states the requiremet: 5 hrs. Theoretical knowledge instruction and 3 hrs. Flight training
Within this framework, LenAir has developed a training course complying with the EASA reguations.

We offer
A fully approved ‘advanced UPRT’ training course ref. FCL 745.A including theoretical knowledge as well as flying training on aircraft well suited for the mission
The flying part of the training course is conducted in 3 flights, taking the student step by step thru the syllabus.

After succefully completed the Advanced UPRT course, LenAir will issue a certificate of completion, stating that the student has succefully passed the training required by EASA part FCL 745.A, thus qualifying for class or type ratings on:

  • (a) single-pilot aeroplanes operated in multi-pilot operations;
  • (b) single-pilot non-high-performance complex aeroplanes;
  • (c) single-pilot high-performance complex aeroplanes; or
  • (d) multi-pilot aeroplanes;

Our instructors are higly qualified with a base in aerobatic flying, thus familiar with extreme upsets attitudes as well as high angle of attack flying.
All instructors for the EASA 745.A, Advanced UPRT Course are qualified according to EASA part FCL.915(e).

The following exercises and G-loads will be covered by the stated training methods:
Aircraft familiarzation
Steep turns up to 75°banked turn
Spiral dive
Stall, different types including all attitude stalls and slip/skid stalls
Nose high and nose low recoveries – 60°nose up and 30°nose down attitudes, bank 45°
G loads in the range 2.5 to -1G.
Spin, incipient stage. The aircraft is fully certified for spins.
The training will cover visual, Simulated IMC and two pilot crew recoveries with a train-toproficiency
concept. Surprise and startling effect will be introduced and mitigation methods trained.
Certificate of Completion
LenAir will issue a course certificate ref. FCL 745.A after successful completion of the ‘advanced
UPRT course’

The price is based on theory and flights from EKRK. Other places are certainly possible. Expences wil be invoiced on cost basis only.
