Extended Envelope Training (EET) and Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT)

Subject: Extended Envelope Training (EET) and Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT)

In response to Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) incidents and accidents, global regulatory authorities have embarked on efforts to improve the pilot training regulatory framework pertaining to upset/ stall prevention and recovery training, loss of reliable airspeed and manual flight skills. These include the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandated Extended Envelope Training (EET) and recommendations for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) by international regulators and organizations. Regulations requiring advanced simulator data packages for Flight Simulator Training Devices have been approved to insure more realistic training.

Boeing is responding to these new regulatory initiatives with a proactive strategy to update our training programs and simulators to ensure full compliance with all international training mandates. Enhanced simulator data packages incorporating manufacturer’s flight test data are being installed in Boeing’s simulators. They are being tested for aircraft performance fidelity by Boeing test pilots to insure full compliance with global regulatory training requirements within each model’s Validated Training Envelope (VTE). Boeing is incorporating the elements of EET/UPRT maneuver and scenario based training into all of its type rating and recurrent training courses.

Boeing strongly believes that a well-trained, competent flight crew is an essential component for safe flight operations. Focus on prevention and recognition skills in addition to familiarity with aircraft protective systems is essential for aircraft stall avoidance. Our EET/UPRT program places increased emphasis on human factors including pilot monitoring skills, threat and error management and crew resource management principles to ensure aircrew understanding of these prevention and recognition strategies. Maneuver and scenario based recovery training includes hands on full-stall recoveries. Surprise and startle effects are included to improve aircrew competency.

Boeing recognizes that instructor training and competency is essential to the success of this program. As Boeing simulators are updated with the enhanced aero data packages, our global flight instructor cadre is being trained and indoctrinated to teach the advanced EET/UPRT maneuvers. Our goal is to complete instructor training and curriculum development for all of our fleets by early 2018.

Committed to provide industry leading flight training, Boeing fully supports the FAA EET mandate and international UPRT objectives. Our training programs will comply with all international regulatory guidelines. Refer to the appropriate Boeing model Flight Crew Training Manual (FCTM) and Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) for specific guidance regarding stall or upset recovery techniques and procedures. Numerous additional resources are available including FAA Advisory Circulars (AC 120-111 and AC 120-109A), Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST) Safety Enhancement 196, Airplane Upset Prevention & Recovery Training Aid (AUPRTA Rev 3) and the ICAO Document 10011.

Jet Upset Recovery is an integral part of training. I personally find it the only fun part of a PPC in the Sim. I wish we could do it in a aerobatic aircraft but the sim does a good job. Moertoe and myself just had a seriously challenging two days in the Sim with some awesome Jet Upset Training and a bit more... :dance:

To say we were axhausted after two days would be a understatement :lol: Moertoe even starting sounding like Pine after a while eeeeeeehhhhh :tmi: :outtahere: :haha:
