Existing training requirements have resulted in Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) remaining the leading cause of fatalities in every sector of aviation for more than a decade. Normal pilot responses in upset events based on aircraft response within the normal envelope may be inappropriate or even catastrophic in aircraft upset events. Many of the flight characteristics and behaviors seen outside of the normal flight envelope cannot be seen in-flight simulators, even with today’s enhanced aeromodels. Similarly, the human factors present in LOC-I incidents and accidents cannot be recreated through flight simulation alone.

This workshop will explain the gaps present in existing training standards leading to the existing LOC-I accident rate, and how those training standards must be elevated to build knowledge and skills that will help pilots to prevent and, if necessary, recover from unanticipated airplane upset events.
