Advisory Circular for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training and Advisory Circular for Stall Prevention and Recovery Training Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed Advisory Circular for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training and proposed revision to Advisory Circular for Stall Prevention and Recovery Training, request for comment. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is announcing the availability of proposed Advisory Circulars (AC) 120–UPRT and 120– 109A. AC 120–UPRT provides SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:13 Mar 10, 2014 Jkt 232001 Advisory Circular 120–UPRT The primary goal of this proposed AC is to provide recommended practices and guidance for academic and flight simulation training device (FSTD) training for pilots to prevent developing upset conditions and ensure correct and consistent recovery responses to upsets. This AC was developed based on a review of recommended practices developed by major airplane manufacturers, labor organizations, air carriers, training organizations, PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 simulator manufacturers, and industry representative organizations. This AC provides guidance to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 121 air carriers implementing the regulatory requirements of § § 121.419, 121.423, 121.424, and 121.427. Core principles of this AC include: • Enhanced instructor training on the limitations of simulation. • Comprehensive pilot academic training on aerodynamics. • Early recognition of divergence from intended flight path. • Upset prevention through improvements in manual handling skills. • Progressive intervention strategies for the pilot monitoring. Advisory Circular 120–109A The primary goal of this proposed AC revision is to provide guidance and best practices for training, testing, and checking for pilots to ensure correct responses to impending and full stalls. This AC was developed based on a review of recommended practices developed by major airplane manufacturers, labor organizations, air carriers, training organizations, simulator manufacturers, and industry representative organizations. Core principles of this Advisory Circular include: • Reducing angle of attack is the most important pilot action in an impending or full stall. • Pilot training should emphasize teaching the same recovery technique for impending stalls and full stalls. • Evaluation criteria for a recovery from an impending stall should not include a predetermined value for altitude loss. Instead, criteria should consider the multitude of external and internal variables which affect the recovery altitude. • Once the stall recovery procedure is mastered by maneuver-based training, stall prevention training should include realistic scenarios that could be encountered in operational conditions, including impending stalls with the autopilot engaged and at high altitudes. • Full stall training should be led by the instructor, but must allow the pilot to experience the associated flight dynamics and execute a recovery. The agency will consider all comments received by May 12, 2014. Comments received after that date may be considered if consideration will not E:\FR\FM\11MRP1.SGM 11MRP1
