Panamedia, the international flight school with more than 40 years of experience in training professional pilots, incorporates the new UPRT course.

Training objectives

UPRT stands for airplane ‘Upset Prevention and Recovery Training’ and constitutes a combination of theoretical knowledge and flying training with the aim of providing the flight crew with the required competencies to both prevent and to recover from situations in which an airplane unintentionally exceeds the parameters for line operation or training (airplane upsets).

New aerobatic airplane

With the objective to provide the Advanced UPRT course in the most authentic way, Panamedia has purchased an aerobatic airplane, which allows the most acrobatic flying experience and allows our instructors to give a high standard of training.

Airlines have started requesting candidates to have this courses completed for the selection processes of new pilots. For this reason, Panamedia has worked quickly to be able to include the UPRT course in the training of its students.
