Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) Workshop for Regulators

3-7 July, 2023 Singapore

We have just concluded the five-day workshop on the Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) topic designed exclusively for Asian regulators. The goal of this course was to provide knowledge, skills, understanding, and attitude enabling participants to explain the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) provisions and EU regulations applicable to UPRT and to enhance the safety of airline operations, including Flight Crew Training in FSTDs, the UPRT requirements for Flight Crew Licensing, as well as enabling CAA personnel to assist in the development of UPRT regulations.

This activity was jointly organized by the three Aviation Partnership Projects (APPs) funded by the EU and implemented by EASA and two ICAO’s Co-operative Development of Operational Safety and Continuing Airworthiness initiatives (COSCAP-SEA and COSCAP-SA), covering North, South, and Southeast Asian region. In total, 35 participants from Asian CAAs attended this activity from 19 different countries, joined by experts from AirbusATRBoeingEASA - European Union Aviation Safety Agency, and International Air Transport Association (IATA), to share their in-depth knowledge of the UPRT topic with the participants from various perspectives.
The highlight of the activity was the visit of the Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC) in Singapore to provide the participants with firsthand experience and an opportunity to observe the methods and techniques they discussed during the workshop.
Our special thanks go to the onsite experts: Fernando Sanchidrian, for delivering the activity, Eric Denoux, Herve BartheJavier Serra Palerm, Jose Fernandez, Michelle Low, and Ascanio Russo, for the technical support onsite; the organizing team working in the background making this activity success, and lastly, all the participants that participated in Singapore and contributed to a fruitful discussion.


ADAC HEMS Study Visit, Germany

14-16 February, 2023

Safer aviation saving lives

A delegation from Thailand visited ADAC, EASA and University Clinic Bonn in Germany during a Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) study visit on 14-16 February 2023. This demonstrated how HEMS can be used to save lives under a high level of safety.

Thailand wants to bring down its number of road fatalities in particular; and is looking at the ways HEMS is implemented in Europe. EASA has been helping Thailand amend and implement its HEMS regulations, to support proper safety oversight, demonstrate partnership and nurture this fledgling industry in Thailand.

The visit was organised for officials from the Thai National Institute for Emergency Medicine (NIEM), the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) and the private operator Siam Land Flying (SLF), and was funded by the European Union under the EU-South East Asia Aviation Partnership Project.
