Upset Prevention & Recovery Training

Loss of Control In-Flight (LOCi) is by far the biggest cause of fatal accidents in aviation. You have taken the first steps to not only reduce your risk of becoming another LOCi statistic, but by completing this training, you will become a better, safer, confident, and more competent pilot.

Contrary to belief, Upset prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT) is NOT Aerobatics. In fact, apart from spins there are no aerobatic manoeuvres performed at all during the training. (Well ... we might have a little bit of fun after the training is completed).

The purpose of the training is to educate pilots what they need to do should their aircraft’s state be outside pre-determined "Normal" flight regimes. This is technically referred to as a "Loss of Control In-Flight" or "LOCi".

If you think it cannot happen to you, then think again. LOCi started before the Wright Brothers first flight on the sand dunes of Kittyhawk and remains today, the greatest killer of pilots and passengers across ALL types of aviation including heavy passenger jets.

The skills and knowledge you will obtain from this training will enhance your understanding of the aircraft and how it moves through the air and most importantly, give you the skills to be able to recover the aircraft from any attitude.

Strike Aviation Training provides UPRT for registered aircraft utilizing our 8KCAB Decathlon which is approved for intentional spinning. We also provide a dedicated training package specific to RAAus aircraft.

During your training you will receive a CASA Part 61 Spinning Flight Activity Endorsement (if applicable)
