Upset Prevention Recovery Training (UPRT) - Military Pilots

 

Details for aspiring commercial pilots (NOT MILITARY) can be found here: UPRT

 

There will a requirement to complete an Advanced UPRT-Aeroplane course before starting an initial multi-crew Type Rating (Airliner) for all TRs that start on or after 20th Dec 19. There is currently no military credit against this requirement.

Here is a useful article that explains the various UPRT stages and common questions about UPRT:  https://flyinginireland.com/2019/08/what-is-uprt/

After researching UPRT-Aeroplane providers we believe CRM Aviation, ELCAS registered, is the best option for military pilots. They have been providing the course since 2013, the instructors are either ex-CFS military or airline pilots with significant aerobatic experience. They currently only offer standalone UPRT courses to military pilots via UKFlying. If you also require a MCC then a good option to combine the 2 courses and use 1 ELC against the cost.

 

 Here are the details from their website:

Advanced UPRT - Aeroplane - £1895

EASA regulatory information on UPRT training,  Advanced UPRT-Aeroplane can be found here - UPRT-A. It is worth noting that pilots holding an EASA Aerobatic Rating, or have aerobatic experience, WILL NOT be exempt from the Advanced UPRT-Aeroplane Course. No exemption has been granted for military pilots, so it is mandatory that the Advanced UPRT-Aeroplane Course will be required for all military pilots transitioning to a civilian licence. There is no abridging course for military pilots - the full course must be completed.
