Upset Prevention & Recovery (URP)


Duration: 01:20 hour

Exam: 20 Questions

Available: 90 days

Applicability: Flight Crew



The goal of this Airplane Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPR) is to increase the ability of pilots to recognize and avoid situations that can lead to airplane upsets and to improve their ability to recover control of an airplane that diverges from a crew's desired airplane state.
