Here you can find the details of this year´s agenda. We tried hard to make it interesting to the pilot community - both General Aviation and Commercial Air Transport. We have to admit, however, that the agenda is tailored to fixed-wing UPRT.

About this Workshop

The goal of our workshop is to bring together people who are passionate about Upset Prevention and Recovery Training, experienced Upset-Prevention Trainers, industry leaders in their own sense, and the interested pilot training community - 3 days Workshop / Training


"Airplane Upset always come with a startle factor-

the very first reaction needs to be just right -

even if not intuitive"

 

(Dr. Dieter Reisinger)

Why a UPRT Workshop / Training?

Whether you fly small single engine piston aircraft or heavy transports - statistics of accidents show that pilots once in a while loose control of their aircraft and recovery is not always successful. The first reaction needs to be just right, even if counter-intuitive. Anything else will likely aggravate the situation.

This three day workshop / combined training is intended to bring together experienced Upset-Prevention Trainers, industry leaders and the interested pilot community. The workshop is equally well suited for the beginner pilot, as well as the experienced fleet chief instructor and management pilot. While we focus on high-level presentations in a classroom style scheme, there will be sufficient time to do net-working, discuss the topic and exchange thoughts with other professionals..

The workshop is complemented with field trips on the third day. Depending on your area of interest, you can choose to either visit Full Flight Simulator Training or in-aircraft training and disorientation simulators. After all, UPRT is very broad subject and it is sometimes controversially discussed with rules and regulations still in their infancy. Some of the typical questions are:

  • Why the term UPRT and what is the difference to LOC-I?
  • Why UPRT for General Aviation and how does training differ from airline UPRT?
  • What is the benefit of simulators and why should UPRT be complemented with in-aircraft training?
  • Which technology is available today to avoid LOC-I?
  • What is our position on AOA-indicators?
  • How should UPRT differ - depending on which segment of aviation a pilot covers?


OUR GOAL
To provide high level training to all participants - after course all participants will be issued a certificate which they can present to their respective training organization or the Competent Authority.

 

LOSS OF CONTROL INFLIGHT
The number One Killer in Aviation
Loss of Control-inflight (LOC-I)caused several thousand fatalities in both General and Commercial Air Transport over the last year. This accident type always makes it into the news - it usually ends in disaster when pilots loose control of their aircraft. LOC-I is typically preceded by an usual attitude, either in pitch or bank, in addition to airspeed inappropriate for the phase of flight. Apart from the startle factor spatial disorientation, unexpected g-loads and finally a lack of awareness and training play a role in this accident type.

Listen to what pilots in the field think about Upset Prevention and Recovery Training.

Capt. David CARBAUGH

Dave has been a pilot for more than 40 years, having flown a variety of aircraft, fighters and transports in different operational environments.

After graduating from the Air Force Academy, he attended Air Force pilot training in Arizona. Graduating near the top of his class he was chosen to return as an instructor pilot. He was an instructor, check airman, functional check pilot, and wing spin pilot flying the T-37, T-38, and F-5 during his tour culminating in being instructor pilot of the year. His follow-on assignment was flying F-15 Eagles out of McChord AFB, Washington. He later transitioned to the C-141 at McChord and was an aircraft commander, instructor pilot, and check airman flying worldwide missions including supporting the first Gulf War.

In 1987 Dave started his 29-year career as a pilot for the Boeing Company. He ended up being qualified in all models and variants of the 737,747,757,767,777, and 787 aircraft. For his first 7 years, he was an instructor pilot conducting simulator training and initial operating experience flying airline operations for various airlines worldwide. He also was a CRM instructor and wrote training material for CRM, TCAS, Takeoff Safety and ETOPS training.

In 1994 he was promoted to Chief Pilot Flight Operations Safety and launched into the ambitious project of bringing Upset Recovery Training to the industry. He co-chaired the Upset Recovery Training Aid industry team and wrote much of the pilot education material and training exercises. He later authored revisions 1 and 2 of the training aid. He did all of the initial training of Boeing instructors on the conduct of instructing upset recovery training in the simulator and developed course material and training videos. He was involved with industry efforts to include FAA-Industry Stall/Stick Pusher Training Working Group and International Committee for Aviation Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE). He promoted the material with presentations and magazine articles for various organizations such as the Flight Safety Foundation, Aviation Week, and the Royal Aeronautical Society.

Additionally, he co-chaired the industry training aids involving CFIT, Wake Turbulence, and produced the ALAR (Approach and Landing Accident Reduction) videos for the Flight Safety Foundation. He led the pilot support of accident investigation, audits, and customer safety visits. He has received numerous awards to include Aviation Week Laurel, Flight Safety Foundation’s President and Lifetime achievement awards.
In his last decade at Boeing he was Chief Pilot Technical and Safety for Test and Evaluation. He was responsible for all the operations and training manuals and checklists for all Boeing models. He was responsible for the safety of Boeing flight operations to include F-15, F-18, Apache and Chinook Helicopters, V-22, C-17, as well as all commercial models and variants. He conducted flight test on various Boeing aircraft to include 747-8 and 787 aircraft. Recipient of the European Flight Test Safety Award in 2013 from the Society of Experimental Test Pilots for contributions to flight test safety.
After retiring from the Boeing Company, Dave has stayed involved in the worldwide effort to prevent loss of control.

Presently he is an instructor for Boeing type specific UPRT for Aviation Performance Solutions. He deploys to provide train the trainer and UPRT instruction to pilots and instructors worldwide.

PRESIDENT AUSTRIAN COCKPIT ASSOCIATION
PRESIDENT AUSTRIAN COCKPIT ASSOCIATION
Isabel DOPPELREITER

On Nov 22, 2016 Isabel DOPPELREITER made history when she was voted into office as the president of the Austrian Cockpit Association (ACA). She is the first female ever worldwide to hold that position in a pilot´s association.

Isabell flies as an airline pilot for Austrian Airlines since 2008. She started her career as a regional pilot on Fokker 70/100 and is now type-rated on the Embraer 195. In addition she works as a CRM facilitator in the airline and is a team member of IFALPA´s Accredited Accident Investigation team.

Isabel initially worked as a flight attendant at Lauda Air and developed an early desire to get into the front seat. She started pilot training in Ottawa, Canada, and passed with flying colors in December 2007. To fund the training she worked as a Customer Service Rep at Esso Avitat at Ottawa International Airport.

Und so begann sie im August 2005 ihre Pilotenausbildung in Ottawa, Kanada, die sie im Dezember 2007 erfolgreich abschloss. Die Ausbildung finanzierte sich Isabel Doppelreiter selbst, dazu arbeitete sie während ihrer Zeit in Kanada als Customer Service Rep. bei Esso Avitat; FBO (fixed based Operations) am internationalen Flughafen in Ottawa.

Isabel´s passion is not limited to flying and flight safety. She is a five-time volunteer in the “Global White Lion Protection Trust” in Timbavali and also spent time as a volunteer in  the  Daktari Bush School & Wildlife Orphenage in Hoedspruit, Africa
