Flight Research has introduced a new upset recognition and recovery training (URRT) course to help pilots understand early onset icing and its impact on aircraft performance.

“Our most safety-conscious customers requested we build a program for this specific safety concern,” CEO Bill Korner said during course development.

During the course, customers will encounter aircraft icing in a controlled and simulated environment onboard Flight Research’s Cirrus SR 22, which the company says is designed and authorised specifically for icing demonstrations.

Flight Research URRT meets FAA, EASA, and ICAO UPRT compliance standards.

Established in 1981, Flight Research owns and operates more than 40 aircraft comprised of multiple fleets from supersonic trainers to single and twin turboprop aircraft as well as many helicopters.
