Global Aerospace, Inc. Subsidizes Calspan Training Costs For Its Insureds

Global Aerospace, Inc., announces additional Upset Recovery Training (URT) offerings scheduled for the weeks of September 8, 2014 and September 15, 2014 in Niagara Falls, New York.

Loss of Control (LOC) in-flight is undeniably one of the leading causes of aircraft crashes and crash-related fatalities. Global Aerospace recognizes that pilots in our industry have become increasingly dependent upon automated systems and many do not have the opportunity to regularly practice and develop their airmanship skills. Calspan’s Advanced Maneuvering & Upset Recovery Training (AM-URT) provides our customers with technically advanced upset training specifically designed for business jet pilots.

In February, 2014, Calspan and Global Aerospace held their first successful training event in Mojave, CA. Pilots from six different flight departments took part in a two day URT class. The Calspan training program designed for Global Aerospace customers includes ground school as well as in-flight simulator training in a modified Learjet. The Lear is outfitted to respond to input controls with the same motions as a larger cabin-class swept wing business jet.
