Its not easy flying in the NAS... and its only gotten more complicated over the years -- especially if you are a busy commercial pilot. But Lee Lauderback's Stallion 51 operation believes that they can ease the life of today's commercial pilots... and keep them from harm when one of the most disabling emergency scenarios goes from being postulated to being real...
Just a few days ago, Stallion 51 announced that it will now offer real-time, real-life Unusual Attitude Training in a specially equipped L-39 turbojet. The new program is the next evolution in Stallion 51’s 25-year heritage of offering training in high performance aircraft.
“Our new Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Program definitely raises the bar even higher for pilots who fly for a living and under all types of conditions,” said Lee Lauderback, Stallion 51’s president. The former chief pilot for golf legend Arnold Palmer noted that the unique curriculum has been five years in the making. “We now have a comprehensive program that covers all areas of prevention, recognition and recovery from unusual attitudes of flying.”
The UAT L-39 is outfitted with a state-of-the-art Electronic Flight Instrument System with the design capability to withstand extreme flight attitudes. The EFIS equipment closely simulates current corporate and executive aircraft cockpit layouts. The UAT L-39 is also equipped with specially-designed onboard cameras that allow for accurate visual and audio debriefs of the training from both inside the cockpit and outside the airplane.
