Flight Simulator and UPRT Device

AIRFOX UPRT is the genius and cost-effective solution for MPL, ATPL and UPRT


LOC-I is one of the highest threats in aviation and is the reason for the majority of fatalities due to aircraft accidents.

Proper pilot training helps pilots to avoid consequent upset condition after LOC-I can significantly increase airline safety.


AIRFOX UPRT provides unique training capabilities for MPL cadet pilots up to phase 3, for CPL (A) and ATPL (A) cadet pilots and for special recurrent UPT (Upset Prevention Training) of pilot already in line-operation.

The validated out-of-the-envelope aircraft characteristics combined with a most advanced motion cueing algorithm forms the heartbeat of such training. Additionally SD (Spatial Disorientation) could be trained and demonstrated very effectively and sharpens the senses of pilots for misinterpreting conflicting human sensory input.


AIRFOX UPT combines the capabilities of a conventional Level D simulator, but in a class specific configuration.

Thus the AIRFOX UPRT is a very cost-effective solution for valuable pilot ab-initio and recurrent training due to low investment costs and reasonable operation effort. A wide range of training applications could be performed on AIRFOX UPRT:


The AIRFOX UPT covers ab-initio training up to MPL Phase 3, CPL and parts of ATPL in basic configuration.

Visual System

A 9ft cross-cockpit collimated optical system in combination with a three high-resolution projectors provides a wide-angle field-of-view (FOW) and meets highest FSTD standards. The cross-cockpit technology allows an out-of-the-window (OTW) view for both pilots without any parallax like in real aircraft.

Image Generation for OTW

The Out of the Window (OTW) view, technically spoken the image generator (IG), is a brand new development allowing the highest level of details and effects. The realism of the IG gives the pilot the impression, like flying in the real aircraft rather than in a simulator. Even effects like clouds, reflections on water and snowfall and rain are extremely realistic.

Motion System

The motion system consists of six independently controllable motion axes. The hexapod motion system provides motional sensations/cues to the trainee. The motion system is capable of operating at sub-threshold motion in all seven axes, so discontinuities in linear and angular motion are not perceptible by the trainee.

Cabin and Cockpit

Two pilots, one instructor and one observer may seat in the lightproof cabin at their comfortable and adjustable seats. The cockpit is a full replica of the simulated aircraft with all control elements and instruments realistically simulated as in aircraft.

Control Loading System

All primary controls are active control loaded using a force-feedback system, which fulfils the highest requirements for FSTD. The control reaction forces are calculated within the flight model and those are precisely replicated by the control loading system (CLS).

Aircraft Types

There is no limitation regarding the aircraft type simulated by the FSTD. For class-specific upset prevention and recovery training predominantly Boeing B737 NG and Airbus A320 are used.


The AIRFOX UPT is also a perfect platform for situational awareness training.

Motion System

An additional unlimited yaw can be added, which will allow to demonstrating all spatial disorientation (SD) phenomena. The additional turntable is capable of operating at sub-threshold, so angular motion may not be perceptible by the trainee.

Spatial Disorientation (SD) Illusions

Demonstration of passive illusions and active illusions (vestibular, visual or combinations). The training aims to raise awareness for situations, where pilots are facing misleading human sensory signals (incapacity human attitude perception system while flying) and to train proper reaction. SD is most often a cause for a/c entering an upset condition.
