MADRID. NOVEMBER 18TH, 2020.
Global Training Aviation is proud to announce that their ATR 72/500 Level D Full Flight Simulator (FFS), has been upgraded and has received the AESA UPRT, High altitude stall event, full stall and icing certification according to CS-FSTD (A) issue 2.
The FFS is located on the premises of GTA, in Madrid (SPAIN).
This is the FOURTH GTA simulator with this certification, joining our A320 FFS's (GTA Spain and Colombia), B737 FFS (GTA Spain). Very soon our ATR 72-600 and A320 GTA Indonesia will have it too.
Pilot training programs have further been updated to include full UPRT requirements.
UPRT stands for aeroplane ‘Upset Prevention and Recovery Training’ and constitutes a combination of theoretical knowledge and flying training with the aim of providing flight crew with the required competencies to both prevent and to recover from situations in which an aeroplane unintentionally exceeds the parameters for line operation or training (aeroplane upsets).
The simulator has level D certification, the maximum certification available. This means that one hour of flight on board equals one hour of actual flight in terms of training. The system replicates the behavior of the aircraft with complete realism.
Pilots train in situations impossible to re-create in the air, such as the failure of an engine or an emergency landing. They also practice landings at any airport in the world, in all kinds of weather conditions.
GTA has head offices in 3 continents (Spain, Indonesia and Colombia) equipped with 6 state-of-the-art Full Flight Simulators, an A320 FNPT II, an Eca Faros Flight & Maintenance Training Equipment simulator (A320 and B737NG) and a CEET A320, Cabin Emergency Evacuation Training simulator for cabin crew training.
