The aim of the Advanced UPRT training acc. EASA FCL.745.A is to equip the flight crew with the necessary skills to prevent and remedy flight conditions outside of normal line operations or training. UPRT stands for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training and is a combination of theoretical knowledge and aeronautical training.
Upset Prevention Recovery Training has been mandatory for commercial pilots since December 20, 2019 (transition period until 2021).
According to the EU Commission, Upset Prevention Recovery Training "on aircraft" is an appropriate strategy to avoid undesired flight conditions or loss of control of aircraft (which are major risk factors and can lead to fatal accidents in commercial air traffic). The training to avoid and end undesired flight conditions must be integrated into different phases of the career of professional pilots, according EASA.
Pilots who already have a CPL (A), ATPL (A) or MPL license and who have a type rating from December 21, 2019 on a model in which two pilots are mandatory (multi-pilot airplane) or a rating for an high performance aircraft.
Pilots who have already started training for CPL (A), ATPL (A), MPL or courses for classes and type ratings before December 20, 2019, will postpone this to December 20, 2021 (the current training must be completed by this time).
