A Revolutionary Idea – Advanced Pilot Training in High-Performance Aircraft

Share Article

Flight Research is an established authority for testing and certifying airframes. Now they're offering high-performance jet training options as well. Actual stall, spin, and upset recovery experience in jet, turboprop and piston aircraft make pilots safer than simulator training alone.

Flight simulators are a very popular and cost-effective option for providing training for pilots. However there are flight situations that cannot be duplicated in a simulator and lack of experience and upset training in the actual aircraft can have consequences.

The NTSB and FAA reports that the leading cause of fatal accidents that occurred in the commercial jet fleet throughout the world between 1994 – 2003 was due to loss of aircraft control in flight. This resulted in 32 accidents and over 2000 fatalities. The recent Air France 447 and Colgan 3047 accidents are examples of this.

Properly trained pilots can recognize and properly recover from a loss of control incident. Flight Research specializes in providing advanced training for pilots enabling them to recognize and recover from unusual attitudes, spins and stalls in high performance aircraft, including jets and turbine aircraft.

Instructors are all former military flight instructors with thousands of hours of experience. Some are also former astronauts, test pilot school graduates, combat veterans and test pilot school instructors.

Aircraft used include the MB-326 jet trainer, Sabreliner, DHC-1 Chipmunk, T-67 Firefly and NDN-IT Turbine Firefly.

The course duration is 2 to 4 days depending on customer requirements and can usually be done over a weekend at our training facility in Mojave, CA.
