e. Upset recovery

No duration

Nowadays, one of the most important skills for an airline pilot is the ability to manually fly the airplane, especially the ability to recover from unusual position. The most important recent accidents in the history of commercial aviation have shown that pilots had to be able to control their aircraft in any conditions.

This is precisely why we are now offering a special "Upset Recovery" training program. This small course allows candidates, holders of a private pilot license, to perform a set of acrobatic maneuvers, and learn to master the airplane in (almost) all situations.

Loss of instruments and spatial disorientation can cause loss of manual flying skills and the inability to escape from a situation yet recoverable! These are the specific skills that will be practiced and reviewed during the "Upset Recovery" training!
