Helicopter Upset Recognition and Recovery Training

Flight Research, Inc. is launching a free live online training session for our customers who are unable to travel to train with us during the recent travel restrictions. This class will start our customers down the path of Upset Recovery Training for Rotary Wing while waiting for their courses to be rescheduled by their training directors.

If you would like to take advantage of this online training, but are not an existing customer, Flight Research is also opening participation to all pilots for free during these weeks of "shelter in place" directives throughout the world.

Pilots will learn the basics of HURRT from Patrick Kelleher in this two-hour overview session. Pilots will have the ability to interact throughout the live course and ask questions relative to their own operations. 

The course has limited registrations to ensure quality training so be sure to register today to get an open seat.

More Information

This course is the introductory material 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.
