Learn to avoid stalls and spins, the #1 cause of general aviation accidents Most pilots learn the basics of stall recovery during their private pilot training. But uncontrolled stalls and spins still plague pilots each year, resulting in unnecessary accidents and injuries. This book gives a clear and concise presentation of not only stall and spin recovery, but more importantly, stall and spin avoidance. Planned stalls or spins are rarely the cause of accidents. It's when pilots fail to notice the warning signs of an imminent unplanned stall or spin that problems occur. These mistakes are normally associated with takeoffs and landings. But accidents can be avoided if pilots learn to recognize the warning signs that indicate that a stall or spin is about to take place. This book teaches pilots to pick up on these warning signals--and discusses many of the improper piloting techniques that cause them. You'll learn how to: Avoid slipping and skidding turns that may lead to stalls and spins; Recognize and deal with a variety of stall/spin situations that require different recovery techniques; Effect spin recovery in true emergency situations; Orchestrate control imputs for spin recovery; Spot the warning signals of an imminent stall; Make the crucial distinction between a spin and a spiral; Avoid or recover from inverted and crossover spins; Avoid secondary stalls. This book gives you in-depth understanding of stall and spin situations, including many exotic spins that most pilots never encounter--but critical knowledge for those who do meet them. This information in conjunction with the ability to recognize and avoid inadvertent stalls, taught by this book, can help you be a safer, more competent pilot.
