Upset Prevention & Recovery Training

“NO ONE RISES TO THE OCCASION, EVERYONE SINKS TO THE LEVEL OF THEIR TRAINING”

OUR TRAINING COURSE USES THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE TASK…. A CORPORATE JET IN THE FULL AEROBATIC ENVELOPE.

The Patriots Jet Team  upset prevention and recovery training course provides training for pilots of all experience levels at our training facility in Byron, California approximately an hour north east of San Francisco. We’re the only training center in the United States that provides upset training in a corporate jet (Sabreliner) in the FULL AEROBATIC ENVELOPE.

Using simulators for UPRT falls short of preparing a crew to properly recover from a real life upset in a corporate jet. Simulators just cannot replicate what the crew will physically experience during a real life upset encounter.

Many Upset Training Courses use small aerobatic aircraft that really don’t perform or recover like a corporate jet. Corporate jets have a much greater mass and much slower roll/pitch rates than light prop driven aerobatic airplanes. Here at the Patriots Jet Center we use two training aircraft – The Aero Vodochody L-39 and the North American Sabreliner 60.


Upset Prevention & Recovery Training Course Details

Our Two Day Course   consists of academics, two L-39 flights and one Sabreliner flight.  It is designed to teach pilots to effectively recognize departure from controlled flight as well as upset scenarios and methods to properly and safely recover from these conditions. An advanced stage of learning which includes on-aircraft training is vital to developing the life-saving skills and discipline of proper upset prevention and recovery while airborne.  Custom courses are also available to meet your needs and requirements.
