UPRT - Upset Prevention and Recovery Training.

This theoretical course for UPRT covers revision of aerodynamics, high altitude flight and recovery from an upset. The course is developed for all types of aircraft, and operation, even for a single pilot flying an advanced single-engine or twin-engine airplane. After completing the course, a course completion certificate will be sent automatically. 

Duration: 2:00 hrs
