"For an aerobatic pilot, there are no unusual attitudes."
More and more time is spent during training on learning today's sophisticated avionics. Therefore less and less time is spent on basic flying. Simulators work well for teaching and practicing aircraft malfunctions as well as flight characteristics of aircraft up to and at stall conditions. Only in actual aircraft can a pilot encounter true stall and spin characteristics. Proper feedback is necessary for establishing muscle memory actions for safe reaction in actual emergencies.
Why are we here today?
A variety of previous aviation accidents prove the need for UPRT exists, not only for airline pilots but for pilots of any kind.
Captain's Training Faulted In
Air Crash That Killed 50
"The captain of a commuter plane that crashed Feb. 12 near Buffalo, N.Y., had flunked numerous flight tests during his career and was never adequately taught how to respond to the emergency that led to the airplane's fatal descent, according to people close to the investigation".
Increase pilot's awareness for LOC (loss of control) situations and prevent an LOC situation more effectively. Recover from a LOC situation faster, safer, and with a minimal passenger inconvenience.
Air France Crash Report
Likely to Alter Pilot Training
"French accident investigators are expected to release a report confirming their initial findings and offering new details of how pilot errors, combined with a fluke of cockpit automation, led to the 2009 crash of an Air France jet into the Atlantic Ocean".
The courses will provide:
Advanced Aerodynamics ground school and in-plane instruction (actual flights). Simulators lack the accuracy of unusual attitudes and turbulent air flow (i.e. advanced stalls and spins).
