Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Stall-and-spin accidents have killed or seriously injured more pilots than any other type of accident and, despite improvements in aircraft design, they remain one of the most serious safety threats in general aviation. Instructors aren't required to teach spin recovery techniques, and many don't because of the stigma surrounding such maneuvers. This book raises the awareness of students and pilots to the importance of practicing stalls and spins as a crucial component of flight safety. A sudden loss of power in the air that leads to nose-down rotation can be an extremely disorienting, sometimes paralyzing, ordeal for pilots who haven't been properly trained in stall and spin procedures. Here, Paul Craig demystifies stalls and spins, helping readers prepare for the experience through a better knowledge and understanding of the aerodynamic principles involved, the psychological effects of stalling and spinning, the actions necessary to avoid disaster, and the spin characteristics of specific aircraft. At a time when the FAA is making stall/spin proficiency a top priority, this important guide will give thousands of reluctant pilots the motivation and confidence they need to meet industry training requirements.
