Upset Prevention and Recovery

How the ALX can help you

What is Upset Prevention Recovery (UPR)?

Aircraft upset is a dangerous condition in aircraft operations in which the flight attitude or airspeed of an aircraft is outside the normal bounds of operation for which it is designed. This may result in the loss of control (LOC) of the aircraft, and sometimes the total loss of the aircraft itself. LOC may be due to turbulent weather, pilot disorientation, or a system failure.

Since the decline of Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) accidents due to technological breakthrough, Loss of Control – In flight (LOC-I) has become the number one cause of fatal aircraft accidents. Consequently, in pilot training it has become a very important subject and one that you cannot do without.

How ALSIM can help you?

ALSIM believes that you can’t learn everything from books, which is the reason why we decided to develop this functionality in order to raise future pilots’ awareness of unusual flight situations.

Upset recovery is a core subject that will soon be integrated in the initial training.

The ALX UPR functionality allows you to submit your student pilots to the dangers involved. This experience will help with identifying and be alert to the various warning cues.

Security awareness is an essential key to top-notch pilot training.

The ALX, as always, is one step ahead.

ALX UPR Functionalities

How does it work?

  • The selected pre-set will act as an autopilot, gradually setting the plane in an unusual attitude and/or bank.
  • It can be triggered at any speed and altitude. The pilot will not counter the loss of control until he/she manages the proper flight parameters.
  • The pre-set scenario is applied at the current aircraft position and altitude, and will affect speed, bank and attitude depending on the selected scenario.
