At SAW, our UPRT is designed to train pilots to recover from a wide variety of situations throughout the entire attitude spectrum. Quick recovery from any recoverable in-fight upset situation is the goal and attainable with a few hours of instruction. With Loss Of Control – Inflight (LOC-I) being the number one cause of fatalities in airplanes and LOC-I mitigation a top priority for the FAA, NTSB, and others, SAW’s goal is to give you the skills and confidence you need to prevent and/or recover from any LOC-I incident.
All Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT), aerobatic and spin courses are done in SAW’s Super Decathlon. Flight profiles are listed below course descriptions (click on Learn More below). We may also be able to provide custom courses as needed. If you are looking for something different than what is listed here, give us a call.
Pilots in Training (PT) who successfully complete SAW courses earn a course completion certificate and a letter that describes the training received. This may be useful for those pilots seeking jobs and to provide a record of training. Some insurance companies provide a discount on premiums for completion of an UPRT course.
All of our UPRT courses are approved for FAA Wings program credits.
