A report issued by Boeing in July 2010, and a 2011 general aviation report issued by the GAJSC, identify Loss of Control In-Flight (LOC-I) as the cause of the most crash-related fatalities in both commercial aviation worldwide and US general aviation over the past 10 Years. Summarizing 2 years of focused industry effort on systematically identifying and addressing the Loss of Control In-Flight (LOC-I) problem, the Royal Aeronautical Society's International Committee for Aviation Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE), as well as the international non-profit Upset Prevention & Recovery Training Association (UPRTA), presents a 50-minute industry update on recent advancements in commercial aviation upset recovery training efforts.

In a Spiral Dive, I've head it said to reduce g-loading prior to rolling in an 'over bank'. Does 'over bank' mean more than 90 degrees banked or does it include say 60-90 degrees of banking? The reason for the question is related to the Push-Power-Roll mantra ... does it really apply a spiral dive where the bank angle is less than 90 degrees? The Spiral Dive is a bank problem so shouldn't it be primarily a roll with aileron and rudder to fix it, not 'pushing' first?
