“Getting it Right when things go Wrong-Upset Prevention and Recovery Training” at NBAA 2016

(Kissimmee, Fla.)—Lee Lauderback will be presenting “Getting it Right when things go Wrong-Upset Prevention and Recovery Training” at NBAA Conventions on Wednesday November 2, 2016 from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm.  

For over 25 years the NTSB has recommended specific initial and recurrent training in Unusual Attitude Recoveries for pilots after studying various related accidents.  Lee Lauderback’s presentation will address the value of Upset Prevention and Recovery Training and also the importance of training in aircraft that directly correlate to the types of aircraft used by Business and Corporate aviation.

Real Time, Real Life training allows pilots to recognize and respond accurately and quickly before the situation progresses into one from which they may be unable to recover.  Lee Lauderback often states “When confronted with a crisis, you will not rise to the occasion; you will descend to the level of your training”.

Lee Lauderback, EAA Warbirds of America 2013 Hall of Fame inductee, is President and CEO of Stallion 51 Corporation located at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport, Florida. Since 1987, Stallion 51’s innovative and comprehensive curriculums have instructed thousands of pilots on the correct and safe methods of flying both the legendary P-51 Mustang and the historic T-6 Texan.

Lee is also the founder of “UAT” Unusual Attitude Training, a division of Stallion 51, that offers an FAA-approved three part UPRT program that uses a “PhD approach” to educating pilots in both the P-51 Mustang and specially modified and equipped L-39 Turbojet.  UAT will be exhibiting at Orlando NBAA at booth 4683.

Lee started flying sailplanes at age 14 and launched his corporate aviation career immediately after college with the professional golfer, businessman and pilot, Arnold Palmer. Lee was Mr. Palmer’s chief pilot and the director of flight operations for 17 years, flying several different models of Citation jets, Learjet’s and a MD500E helicopter.

Lee has been the chief flight instructor since Stallion 51’s inception amassing over 21,000 flight hours in all types of aircraft including over 9,000 hours in the Mustang. He is a certified single and multi-engine flight and ground instructor, holds an Airline Transport Pilot certification as well as instrument, helicopter and glider ratings.  His expertise and vast experience in both the corporate and private aviation has earned him the distinction of being an FAA Specialty Aircraft Examiner.  Lee is often called upon to flight test various Vintage planes, helicopters and Turbojets before they are accepted.

Currently, Lee performs his Signature Solo Mustang Routine at air shows around the country.  Lee was one of the first civilian pilots for the USAF Heritage Flight program, which showcases historic WWII military aircraft with current USAF military aircraft in unique formation flight. For many years, Lee has also instructed students at the Navy Test Pilot School in Patuxent River, Maryland and is a member of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots.

Lee has expanded his aviation knowledge and experience to include having a chance to fly the F-15 Eagle, F-16 Viper, F/A-18 Hornet and test flown the Hawker Beechcraft T-6 Texan II.  He also has over 2000 hours in sailplanes and has competed in many soaring contests and has held several sailplane records.

Lee’s decades of experience as well as his educational background as a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach with a degree in Aeronautical Science and Business Management makes him an excellent “higher education professor”.
