What You Do Not Know Can Hurt You

Brief Description:

The NTSB states that Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) is the greatest cause of fatalities in every sector of aviation. Existing FAA pilot licensing requirements do not require a demonstration of proficiency beyond 60 degrees of bank, and recovery only from rudimentary stalls, or approach to stalls. Unexpected upsets encountered in actual accidents can require pilot skills beyond standard licensing capabilities, which is why international authorities have recommended Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) prior to commercial licensing for all pilots worldwide. Find out what comprehensive UPRT entails, what it will teach you that standard licensing training will not, and how it can make you a safer and more confident pilot on every flight you make.
