We turn you upside down.

Spins & More Flight School – UPRT is our core competence!

What is UPRT? Upset Prevention & Recovery Training, and what does it mean? Quite simply, UPRT training is specialty training conducted in aerobatic aircraft meant to prepare pilots for “loss of control in flight”.

With the publication of the regulation from 20.12.2018 the EU Commission is  stressing the importance of Upset Prevention Recovery Training. Starting in Dec 2019, UPRT in a “suitable aircraft” will be mandatory for all commercial pilots. UPRT-Training has been offered by Spins & More for more than 10 years. UPRT tries to expand the flying skills, so that pilots can better avoid or end unwanted flight conditions (Upset). The UPRT training by Spins & More is based on the EMT method (Emergency Maneuver Training) by Rich Stowell (USA). We normaly fly on our fully aerobatic Super Decathlon, but a switch to the our Extra 330 LX is possible.

When you find yourself in the following situations, the plane unexpectedly starts to spin, wake turbulences, or when you find yourself in a oberbanked situation or even inverted flight; there is no time for the textbook! You need to execute recovery procedures quickly. This is exactly what we practice with our students in our UPRT training.
The complete UPRT / Aerobatics training at Spins & More covers 12 flights (total of 10 training hours/blocktime). The contents:  Stall & Spin Awareness, Unusal Attitudes & Control Failures and small aerobatic programs. Lesson 13 is the check flight. You will also receive your Aerobatics Rating when you complete the complete UPRT training.

Other training available with Spins & More: Of course, we also offer PPL (A) training (private pilot license), Night Ratings and IFR (Classic Version, Competency Based IFR, Enroute IFR). There are also special ratings: Single Engine Turbine (Class Rating Cessna SET), High Performance Airplane (HPA) or CPL (A) and MEP (Multi Enginge Piston) or Instructor Refresher Seminars (FI / IRI).

Our Aircraft for training and charter include a DA40 Diamond Star, a Super Decathlon Aerobatic Aircraft as well as the Extra 330 LX for advanced aerobatics and a Cessna Soloy and PC-12 as High Performance Aircraft.

From Scholarship to Aerobatics

Florian (left) is one of three pilots who earned himself a scholarship with Spins & More. He liked the training so much, that he upgraded to Aerobatics. Rating checked. Very well done, Florian, we wish you lots of g-loads and always happy landings!

Enjoy the looping

It was no piece of cake, yet in the end, Andrey did enjoy his loops & rolls! Aerobatic Rating checked – congratulations! “It was definitely a hard training”, Andrey said, “but you guys helped me with your professionalism. It felt like being with friends!” Happy loops, Andrey!

Cessna SET Rating checked

Inas (right on the pic) came from Sweden to Eggenfelden – EDME – for her Cessna SET Rating. Spins & More offers Cessna SET in cooperation with Exit GmbH in Eggenfelden. Congrats to Inas from examiner Wolfgang Obermair und CRI Moni Noll from Exit GmbH.

Aerobatics Rating checked

12 lessons and the check-ride. This was the mission of Markus and he did just that. Congratulations on the aerobatics rating! Markus will keep on flying the Super Decathlon, yet his next aim is not the OE-AIM but the OE-ACE, our Extra 330 LX. Enjoy the inverted life and further g-loads! Happy landings!

Summer Training at LKHS Airfield

In July 2022 we will organize 2 aerobatic training camps at Hosin Airfield, close to Budweis in the Czech Republic. LKHS is a great training area for aerobatics since we are allowed to fly over the field – which makes it easier for the pilot AND the Flight Instructor or Judge. So join us from July 7 – 9 (on July 9 = Extra Solo only) and from

Aerobatics at Hosin

Join us for some loops, hammerheads, and rolls at Hosin Airfield in the Czech Republic. In June we will be at LKHS from June 21 – to June 25. We invited our CIVA Coach Steff Hau, who will judge your flights if you like. That means you will do a briefing before each flight, fly the individually designed program, and get immediate feedback (even when still in the
