Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) is the leading cause of aviation fatalities today. Our goal is to help students understand the causes of Upsets that can lead to LOC-I and to learn to recognize and avoid them and, when necessary, recover from them.

SIMCOM Aviation Training has partnered with Patty Wagstaff Aviation Safety, LLC to provide Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRTA). The UPRTA training will give pilots the skills needed to handle any upset situation that presents itself. It will instill more confidence and will help pilots gain more enjoyment from their flying. The course consists of a combination of ground school and in-aircraft training in an Extra 300L. The training is completed in 1 day (4 hours of ground school and 2 flights / 1 hour each) at Odyssey Aviation at the Kissimmee Airport in Florida.

General Operational Subjects include training in the following areas:

  • Causes of Loss of Control in Flight (LOC-1)
  • Upset Prevention
  • Upset Recovery Techniques
  • High Altitude Operations
  • Swept Wing Fundamentals
  • LOC-1 Accident Review

Upon successful completion of the training, you will receive a certificate of completion.
