Upset Prevention and Recovery Training

12th of July, 2023

NTU has provided technical and logistical support to the EASA for the delivery of a workshop for regulators on the Upset Prevention and Recovery Training topic.

The five-day workshop on the Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) topic designed exclusively for Asian regulators was delivered from 3rd to 7th of July 2023 in Singapore. The goal of this course was to provide knowledge, skills, understanding, and attitude enabling participants to explain the ICAO provisions and EU regulations applicable to UPRT and to enhance the safety of airline operations, including Flight Crew Training in FSTDs, the UPRT requirements for Flight Crew Licensing, as well as enabling CAA personnel to assist in the development of UPRT regulations.

This activity was jointly organized by the three Aviation Partnership Projects (APPs) funded by the EU and implemented by EASA and two ICAO’s COSCAP-SEA and COSCAP-SA, covering North, South, and Southeast Asian region. In total, 35 participants from Asian CAAs attended this activity from 19 different countries, joined by experts from Airbus, ATR, Boeing, EASA, and IATA, to share their in-depth knowledge of the UPRT topic with the participants from various perspectives.

Besides the theoretical part, a highlight of the activity was the visit to the Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC) in Singapore to provide the participants with firsthand experience and an opportunity to observe the methods and techniques they discussed during the workshop.
