FAQ n.44873

To which extent flight simulation training devices (FSTDs) can be used for upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT)?


Training of UPRT exercises within the validated training envelope of the particular FSTD will be possible. In this context, it needs to be highlighted that the revised Part-FCL requirements mandate the conduct of ‘approach-to-stall’ exercises only, with no obligation to conduct ‘post-stall’ exercises. For the conduct of stall or post-stall UPRT exercises, FSTDs need to be qualified in accordance with special evaluation criteria (see Section A, point 18 of Appendix 9 to Part-FCL).
