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.
