Augment core UPRT knowledge and skills with an advanced spin awareness, prevention, and recovery session.
Stalls are the leading cause of all Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) accidents. For all pilots, a comprehensive understanding of the stall/spin escalation process—and how to stop it—is essential.
The special operational missions required by some participating APS customers may take pilots into the higher angle of attack regimes where stalls and departure from controlled flight become a more prevalent occupational hazard. Intelligence/surveillance/reconnaissance, wildlife management, law enforcement, aerial application, military fixed wing operations and other special missions can entail greater exposure to the LOC-I threat than more typical civilian flight operations. For these pilots, or those interested in the opportunity to practice spin recoveries from inadvertent entries and advanced spins, the spin enhancement module specifically addresses these regimes beyond the basics of general spin awareness as is addressed in several of the APS base and recurrent programs.
The advanced spin enhancement provides a review of all aspects of spin dynamics and recovery considerations. Aerodynamic factors, dynamic properties, certification impacts, and various recovery alternatives are presented. Spin recoveries are practiced with the confidence which comes from an aircraft designed expressly for aerobatic capability and spin recovery in all situations. The advanced spin enhancement allows for a certainly level of customization to specifically consider the recovery techniques for your aircraft, whether your airplane is certified for spins or not.
