OUR AIRCRAFT

T67M260 Slingsby Firefly (3 Aircraft)

  • The former military T67M260 Slingsby Firefly is the largest engined (260bhp) variant of the T67, which means that the aircraft can climb very quickly so that you can maximise your time in the air.

  • With its side-by-side seating arrangement, the aircraft is far more representative of the jet operating environment than a tandem aircraft.​  

  • Although the aircraft is capable of +6/-3G, the on-aircraft UPRT exercises are generally flown using similar parameters to the delegates' normal aircraft (typically +2.5/-1G).

Extra EA 300L (1 Aircraft)

  • The Extra is a high performance (300bhp) lightweight aircraft which is sometimes used by The Ultimate High Academy for the last flight in our industry-leading UPRT programme (on request).  

  • As the techniques taught to avoid, recognise and recover from flight upsets are generic and transferable across aircraft platforms (the intention is clearly for delegates to use these techniques on their own commercial aircraft), using the Extra 300 at the end of the UPRT programme reinforces the generic nature of these techniques and enhances delegate confidence.
