The course includes three hours of ground instruction, teaching pilots about the dangers of icing on the airframe and how it affects aircraft performance. Like all of Flight Research’s courses, the program is conducted in actual aircraft rather than simulators. Students fly a one-hour profile in a non-modified Cirrus SR22 followed by the same one-hour profile with proprietary ice structure simulations attached to the airplane. The second flight illustrates how much performance is degraded when the airflow around the wing is disturbed. The course costs $4,999 and meets FAA, EASA and ICAO compliance standards for Upset Prevention and Recovery Training.
