BAA Training Vietnam is the first ATO in Vietnam to acquire Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) certification. BAA Training continues with its expansion in aviation training capacity and training range after the company’s first year of successful operations in the market. BAA Training Vietnam has received the necessary certificates for UPRT training, aligned with Airbus A320 simulators from the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) and have already had their training instructors certified for UPRT training. Until 2021, the pilots of the Vietnamese airlines are required to undergo UPRT.
The BAA Training Vietnam type-related UPRT is a separate training programme and it addresses the specific requirements of the relevant class on the type of aircraft. The key areas of focus of this specific type of training are an enhanced knowledge base of the factors leading to an upset condition, spatial orientation, unusual attitude recovery, and spin recognition and recovery. The form and content of UPRT training are approved by the CAAV, as the regulatory authority for the Vietnam aviation industry.
The new UPRT program launched by BAA Training Vietnam is aimed at enhancing a pilot‘s competencies as well as raising the level of flight safety, to ensure that aviation remains as one of the safest transportation industries.
It is important to emphasise that the new UPRT regulations have also brought new certification specifications for flight simulation training devices which have been recently updated to include guidance on stall model evaluation. BAA Training Vietnam has already received approval for two Airbus A320 full-flight simulators (FFS). This has introduced the possibility of being confident that full-flight simulators now adequately represent an aircraft’s characteristics during an aerodynamic stall.
