If you have travelled across different time zones, you are probably familiar with the discomfort of jet lag. This imbalance occurs because our internal clock (our sleep habits) has a hard time adapting to the new time zone, especially the light-dark cycle.

UPRT

The technological sophistication achieved by commercial aviation has allowed a large part of the pilots’ workload to fall on computerised systems, which allows for greater reliability, immediacy of response and greater comfort during flight. Implementing new technologies and knowing how to adapt to them is essential, just as it is essential that they have the right resources to deal with any situation when a failure occurs. For this reason, since April 2019, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has made it mandatory for all pilots engaged in commercial aviation to hold a UPRT rating. The UPRT (Upset Prevention and Recovery Training) course has been taught at EAS Barcelona since 2018, being the first ATO (Aviation School) to receive authorisation from EASA to teach this course in Spain.

The problem with the current approaches is that they are only a stopgap until the technology arrives that will allow the industry to complete the revolution towards sustainability. Read more
