On-Aircraft UPRT for new ATPLs - FCL.745.A
All pilots studying for new ATPLs and pilots undergoing their first type rating course in multi-pilot operations, will be required to undergo the new advanced UPRT course FCL.745.A. This will be mandatory from 20 December 2019.
Existing commercial pilots (ATPL/CPL/MPL) will not be required to undergo the advanced UPRT course. However, some organisations will choose to have some or all of their existing pilots undertake this training.
The requirements for FCL.745.A have now been formalised. Guidance Material (GM) and Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) were published in February 2019. Ultimate High represented UK ATOs as part of RMG.0581 which established these regulatory guidelines.
The training requirement under FCL.745.A will be 3 hours of actual UPRT. Any activities not directly associated with UPRT such as taxy, transit, circuits, approaches etc will not count towards this 3 hours. Most delegates will require 5 hours of airborne time.
Pilots with aerobatic experience have no exemptions from the advanced UPRT course. Whilst such pilots may be less impacted by the physiological aspects of the training, the UPRT Syllabus is materially different and in fact includes no standard aerobatic manoeuvres.
