NEW YORK (October 15, 2018) – FlightSafety International now offers Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Training for the Gulfstream GIV aircraft. The course is available at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia.
FlightSafety has also upgraded the Gulfstream GIV simulator to the new FlightSafety VITAL 1100 Visual System that significantly enhances training by providing highly detailed mission-specific imagery with vastly improved scene content and exceptional environmental effects.
“FlightSafety’s Advanced Upset Prevention & Recovery Training presents compelling scenarios that allow pilots to safely experience and recover from historically accurate, in-flight upset events in a way that would be far too dangerous to experience in an actual aircraft,” said Dann Runik, Executive Director, Advanced Training Programs.
During this course, pilots are able to recognize, experience, and recover from in-flight loss of control in the safe and controlled environment of a simulator. The course also helps increase knowledge of aerodynamics and develops new skills that are critical to safe operations.
The academic portion of this course consists of four hours of advanced topics including low/high speed aerodynamics, stability and control, aircraft performance, and upset recovery technique. The simulator portion of this course consists of allowing pilots to recognize, experience, and recover from full aerodynamic stall and speeds in excess of VMO/MMO.
With the addition of UPRT to the Gulfstream GIV program, pilots now have access to all four advanced courses offered in the FlightSafety Master Aviator program. They include Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery, Advanced Energy Management, Advanced Rejected Takeoff Go/No-Go, and Advanced CRM/Human Factors LOFT.
