Loss of Control - In-Flight (LOC-I) has been raised as an area of concern in several recent studies conducted into Airline crashes. The Upset Prevention & Recovery Training Association(UPRTA) (2012) have analysed the recent history of Commercial Aviation and identified that the biggest threat to modern Aviation safety is LOC-I (loss of control - inflight). We are not experiencing more LOC-I incidents, its just that we are not able to reduce them as we have with other causal factors. This has spawned a new range of training packages which among other skills such as manual aircraft handling, provide techniques to improve decision making in the flight deck and therefore enhancing how we process information when it counts.
