1st FAA-approved FFS for UPRT uses StallBox
Alaska Airlines' B737-800 simulator becomes the world’s first Full-Flight Simulator (FFS) to become FAA Qualified for Part 121 Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT) and Full Stall Training (April 2016).
U.S. Navy P-8 Trainers
StallBox provides enhanced aerodynamic models for all of the U.S. Navy's P-8 training simulators.
Stall Modeling Expertise
Since 1973, Bihrle Applied Research Inc has established its reputation as the industry leader in data acquisition, analysis and modeling of the most complex flight behaviors. Beginning with ground breaking work in the acquisition and application of dynamic test data for the prediction of aircraft spins, BAR has guided the commercial and military aircraft communities in the application of these data in high-fidelity, physically representative simulations of aircraft stall and post-stall behavior.

Proven UPRT Stall Model Solution
Math model upgrade solution for flight simulators
StallBox is an industry-proven hardware and software solution designed to provide airlines and training centers with the stall models and instructor displays necessary to conduct Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT). The StallBox solution minimizes computational and schedule impacts on the host device by off-loading flight model execution to an external computer that communicates with the existing host simulator system.
The StallBox Process
Model DevelopmentDepending on the aircraft type, Bihrle will provide a stall model from its existing library of models or develop a representative model for the specific aircraft type. If a model needs to be developed, Bihrle will use a process recognized by the FAA to develop the type-representative stall model, leveraging computational and empirical methods and its 40+ year experience in high angle-of-attack aerodynamics.
InstallationThe stall models are hosted on the external "StallBox" which connects to the existing simulator and requires only a lightweight code interface on the simulator host computer for communication. Using a Bihrle-provided API and check cases, the device operator will establish the communication interface with the StallBox computer and verify it's operation.
QualificationUsing a process recognized by the FAA, the type-representative (aka "Exemplar") stall model will be verified by a qualified Subject Matter Expert (SME) and adjusted as necessary. Upon successful evaluation of the model by the regulatory authorities, the simulator will receive an FAA endorsement for upset prevention and recovery training.
