Upset Prevention Recovery Training (UPRT)
UKFlying recommends CRM Aviation for the upcoming mandatory Advanced UPRT-Aeroplane course. They have been running UPRT-Aeroplane courses since 2013 using their three T67 Firefly aircraft and have excellent feedback. The UPRT-Aeroplane regulation comes into force on 20th Dec 19. All students starting an initial Multi-Crew Type Rating, on or after this date will have to have completed an Advanced UPRT-Aeroplane course. Here are the details from the CRM Aviation website:
Advanced UPRT - Aeroplane - £1795
One of the largest causes of aviation accidents and incidents is pilots loss of control in the immediate aftermath of an emergency. EASA have now recognised this - we did years ago, and have been delivering this course since 2013! By 20th December 2019, this training will be a mandatory requirement prior to commencing an initial multi-crew type rating, just like the MCC is. EASA state;
"In respect of issuing EASA licences in accordance with Annex I to Commission Regulation (EU) No 2018/1974, aeroplane upset prevention and recovery training commenced prior to 20th December 2019 under the regulatory oversight of a Member State (e.g. UK CAA) may be given credit until 20th December 2021. Credit given shall be determined by the Member State (e.g. UK CAA) to which the pilot applies for the issue of a licence, rating or certificate on the basis of a recommendation from an Approved Training Organisation that provides the course."
EASA regulatory information on UPRT-A can be found here - UPRT-A. It is worth noting that pilots holding an EASA Aerobatic Rating, or have aerobatic experience, WILL NOT be exempt from UPRT-A training. No ruling is stated for military pilots, so it is currently to be assumed that UPRT-A will be required for all military pilots transitioning to a civilian licence.
This is excellent news for you, the customer, as charges will still be realistic before full regulatory oversight. We are in a unique position to be able to offer JOC/MCC/UPRT, all under one roof, all owned and operated by us!
