SIMAERO confirms certification of A320 & A330 Full Flight Simulators for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT)
SIMAERO has put a special focus on the preparation of comprehensive UPRT training tools and programs on its large range of aircraft training platform.
Airbus A320 and A330 Full Flight Simulators have been upgraded and received EASA certification in December 2019. Boeing 737-300 and Boeing 737-800 Full Flight Simulators, as well as ATR 72-500, will receive UPRT certification in Q1 2020. Pilot training programs have further been updated to include full UPRT requirements.
SIMAERO is committed to offer a high quality UPRT and help flight crews to acquire the competencies to prevent airplane upset. Loss of Control Inflight has been the main cause for aircraft accidents during the last decade. Mitigating loss of control occurrences has therefore become a priority for regulators and airlines. FAA and EASA included UPRT as a requirement in both the academic and simulator-based training required for the Airline Transport Pilot rating. The International Civil Aviation Organization has also published the manual on Aeroplane UPRT, and has recommendations for UPRT during commercial pilot licensing and type rating training.
Nicolas Mouté, CEO, said “We continuously invest in our simulators and develop our training programs so as to keep our training capabilities at the best possible standards. UPRT has been an important milestone for us and the industry in that respect.”
UPRT sessions are available on A320 and A330 Full Flight Simulators in the state-of-the-art SIMAERO’ training center of Paris. Further information and bookings on www.sim.aero.
