Instructors – Qualified for the job

Our instructors are highly qualified with a base in aerobatic flying, plenty of flying experience from ranging from world class aerobatic competition to years of flying airlines.

While UPRT is not aerobatic flying, the base in aerobatic flying ensures familiarity with extreme upsets attitudes as well as high angle of attack flying, thus providing the extra room for manuvering during training.
All instructors for the EASA 745.A, Advanced UPRT Course are qualified according to EASA part FCL.915(e)

Aircraft – Qualified for the job

LenAir use the Super Decathlon or Extra 200 for Advanced UPRT, Aerobatic and tail wheel training.
Our UPRT training Aircraft are rated in the aerobatic category.
The Acrobatic rated ensures the ability of the aircraft to safely perform all the upset maneuvres forming the program safely – i.e. with great margin to the limitations of the aircraft.
Our CAA approved training contains all the required manouvres including negative G maneouvres.
The Decathlon is the most used aerobatic trainer, capable of a full set of aerobatic maneuvres including maintaining inverted flight. The airplane has very good maneuvreability and spin caracteristics, while at the same time being easy and intuitive to fly – a real pleasure.
Seating is tandem so you, as a student, have exeptionally good view – forward, both sides and up.
The Extra 200 is our latest aquisition – world class aerobatic trainer – a two seat version of the world champion Extra 330 SC. 

Utility aircraft may be rated structurally to negative G, but practically speaking it is not realistic. One important finding: during negative G, the engine oil will leave the engine thru the ventilation tube – this could not only mean an unplesant cleaning job, but it should be considered a safety problem.
Since incipient spins are trained, the aircraft shall not only be certified for spins but also perform these safely to allow the student to perform these. It is not acceptable doing incipient spins ie. on the borderline to spins, with an aircraft not approved for spins – for safety.
