What is the Importance of UPRT in Pilot Training?

Share this article:
UPRT stands for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training, which is a type of training that helps pilots learn how to handle and recover from unexpected situations or “upsets” in the aircraft, such as stall, spiral or unusual attitude.

UPRT is becoming increasingly important in pilot training as it is designed to help prevent the loss of control accident, which is the leading cause of fatalities in commercial aviation. It is also important for the industry to comply with the ICAO and IATA regulations that require airlines to provide their pilots with UPRT.

UPRT training typically includes both ground instructions and hands-on training in the simulator or an actual aircraft. Pilots will learn the causes and dynamics of upsets, as well as the proper techniques for recovering from them. They also practice recognizing and responding to upsets in a safe and controlled environment.

UPRT is designed to teach pilots how to think and act quickly and correctly in emergency situations, and to develop the skills, knowledge and judgement they need to prevent and recover from upsets safely. It also helps pilots to better understand the limits of the aircraft and how to operate within those limits.

UPRT is considered an essential part of a comprehensive pilot training program and is required in many regulatory bodies as part of pilot’s licensing and recurrent training.
