IAOPA files opposition to ICAO proposal on upset training
from International Council of Aircraft Owner and Pilot Association
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has released a letter to member states encouraging comments on a proposal that will add a requirement for upset prevention and recovery training as part of the commercial pilot license. This action was taken following events involving commercial air transport airplanes which led to an examination of current training practices of several organizations. In its recommendations, ICAO is adding a requirement for upset recovery training to be included in the curriculum for the commercial pilot’s license and the multi-crew license level that must be accomplished in an aircraft, training that is proposed at the ATP level can be conducted in an approved simulator device.
