ABOUT US - Ultimate High Academy


The Ultimate High Academy - Approved Training Organisation GBR.ATO-0494

  • The Ultimate High Academy was established in 2001 to provide high quality advanced flying and safety training using highly experienced former military and senior commercial pilots, and since then we have been providing Upset Prevention and Recovery training across the whole range of aviation sectors. 

  • Having passionately campaigned for improved training standards to address commercial aviation’s largest cause of fatalities, Loss of Control in Flight, we were selected to represent the UK on EASA’s Rule Making Group on UPRT and helped to write the regulations that will become mandatory from December this year.

Europe's Industry Leader in UPRT

  • Widely regarded as the leading aerobatic and formation training school in the UK, The Ultimate High Academy has increasingly been recognised as Europe's industry leader in UPRT. 

  • We are regularly invited to present on UPRT at a variety of leading Flight Safety events, including:

    • the prestigious International Flight Crew Training conference at the RAeS (three times),

    • the EASA Flight Safety Conference in Luxembourg

    • the GAPAN Technical and Air Safety Committee

    • the FLYER Professional Flight Training Exhibition

    • the European ATO Symposium.   

  • In 2019 we presented at the International Symposium on ‘Pilot Startle and Surprise’ at the TNO in the Netherlands, and also presented on UPRT at Europes largest and most influential Airline Industry event, the European Airline Training Symposium in Berlin.
