Training Solutions for UPRT

UPRT is the method of teaching pilots to maintain control over their airplanes under all conditions. New regulations mandate this safety-enhancing training.

Through the International Committee for Aviation Training in Extended Envelopes, founded and chaired by IDT, the concept of UPRT was introduced to the world in 2009. With over 35 years experience in simulation, human factors and training, International Development of Technology b.v. (IDT) provides the complete set of UPRT services to the airline and business aviation industry.
