All levels of pilots licensed by the European Aviation Safety Agency are affected by a Notice of Proposed Amendment released yesterday that would require aircraft loss of control prevention and recovery training. The main focus of the new training standards is for those who intend to pursue a career as an airline-transport-rated pilot.

Nevertheless, upset prevention training is also to be integrated into existing flight syllabi for light aircraft, private and commercial pilots. The newly developed upset recovery training in an airplane would be mandated for theATP training course and also serve as a prerequisite before starting multi-pilot type rating courses.

New instructor privileges are proposed for the upset recovery training course in an airplane. In addition, simulator instructor training standards will be upgraded. EASA officials said that although loss-of-control events are rare in jet operations, 97 percent of the ones occuring over the past five years have resulted in fatal accidents. The expected compliance date of the provisions is April 2018, and comments on the NPA are due November 2.
