UPSET TRAINING

At AFD, our Upset Recovery Training is designed to train pilots to recover from a wide variety of situations throughout the entire attitude spectrum.

Quick recovery from any recoverable in-fight upset situation is the goal and attainable with a few hours of instruction. With Loss Of Control - Inflight (LOC-I) being the number one killer in airplanes and LOC-I mitigation a top priority for the FAA, NTSB, and others, AFD's goal is to give you the skills and confidence you need to prevent and/or recover from any LOC-I incident.

All flights include comprehensive pre- and post-flight briefs. Flights are recorded and reviewed in post-flight debriefs. Bring a digital memory device and take your video home with you.

AFD upset training is done in our Super Decathlon.

Jet Upset Training

Apply upset recovery skills to a jet platform. Practice UPRT skills at higher speeds and altitudes.

Jet UPRT is a great enhancement for pilots of high performance aircraft due to higher airspeeds, larger turn radii, and lengthened exposure to G-forces. AFD's Fouga Magisters are fully aerobatic aircraft and rated for spins.

The Fouga also provides for very economical jet operations making AFD jet training pricing very competitive. Fouga Magister type training is also available.

Jet training starts at $1,800 per flight (approximately 1 hour). Group pricing also available.
