Loss of control in flight is a number one cause of fatal accidents in aviation.

Our Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) was developed to assist flight crew with their training.

The UPRT e-course is case-based aiming  to stimulate the learners’ interest and to help them link the theory to real situations in high altitude environment.

Interactions and applicable examples make the content easier to understand and to remember.
