Live Online Course:

Upset Recognition and Recovery Training

Aerodynamics & Limitations for Pilots

Flight Research, Inc. is now offering online live training for each of the ground school classes associated with the world class Flight Research Upset Recognition and Recovery Training (URRT). These classes will familiarize pilots with the concepts of URRT. As part of the solution to Loss of Control- In Flight, these conceptual tools are part of a larger more comprehensive program which includes in-aircraft training at the Flight Research Headquarters located in Southern California at the Mojave Air and Space Port.

URRT Aerodynamics & Limitations for Pilots

Pilots will receive in-depth, personalized instruction covering the Aerodynamics & Limitations Class for URRT from Dr. Mark Scharf in this two-hour session. Pilots will interact throughout the live course asking questions relative to their own operations. 

Pilots will learn the fundamentals of:

  • How airplanes are designed and what that means for pilots.
  • How airplane limitations are determined and how that impacts decision making.
  • Aircraft Testing parameters for certain types of aircraft and how that relates to your fleet.
  • How to use this information to confidently maneuver your aircraft in the dynamic upset environment.  
  • FRI's long history in flight testing will give you a unique and valuable perspective on how airplanes fly from a practical, operationally representative perspective. 

The course is limited to only 15 registrations to ensure quality training so register today to get an open seat.

More Information

This course is from the Aerodynamics and Limitations Training utilized in our world renowned 8+hr ground school for Upset Recognition and Recovery Training at Flight Research Headquarters at the Mojave Air and Space Port in Southern California. The information provided is unique to Flight Research Inc. as it was developed with the resources in our several Test Pilot Training syllabi to give pilots an all-encompassing view of their aircraft's capabilities and tested parameters. 

The course results include an increased confidence and competence in aircraft operations and a better understanding of how and why Loss of Control-In Flight is the number one cause of fatalities in aviation.
