Advanced UPRT Instructor Course

Cost £2,250


We have years of experience teaching aerobatics, FI training and Aerobatic Instructor training.  We are fully certified to teach the Adv UPRT instructors.

The Advanced UPRT course demands various qualities from the instructor, perhaps the most important being safety pilot. This role demands that the instructor delivers a safe course meaning he has sufficient experience and ability to ensure the aircraft never enters a condition that makes recovery with a large safety factor, difficult. This course tests this experience and ability but having just 1 + 4 flying hours, cannot be expected to provide the foundations necessary. EASA suggest that an aerobatic rating provides that skill set but being expert in this field, we suggest that this is not necessarily the case. For example and aerobatic rating gained at our Academy will probably result in dramatically greater experience than an aerobatic rating gained elsewhere perhaps on a C150 aerobat where most of the course is spent climbing and the figures flown would be far fewer.

We are not focussed on the money. Our aim is to further aviation generally and aerobatics specifically. Before starting this course, delegates are required to pass a 1 hour acceptance flight. If at the end of this flight we believe you need some pre-course training, we will say so. We hope people coming to us will have the maturity to realise we would do this only for your benefit.
