For this week's cover story, reporter Dave Majumdar has been getting a little upset - undergoing upset recovery training over the Arizona desert with training company APS. Although it was a lot of fun, it had a very serious side. Loss of control - often a failure to recover from an in-flight upset - is the biggest factor in commercial aviation accidents.
Also as part of the pilot training package, David Learmount also looks at the lessons to be learned for the pilot community from the Air France 447 crash over the Atlantic in 2009 - and in particular whether pilots need to be trained in a different way.
Finally, Learmount asks whether the airline industry can recruit and train the new pilots it needs for a predicted doubling of the world airliner fleet by 2030.
