Learn the basics of Spins and more importantly how to avoid them! You'll learn a lot more about angle of attack and stalls, then see a full preflight brief with student and instructor before watching what they actually look like in the airplane and learning the proper general recovery techniques.

Around and around we go!

The idea of an airplane spinning may be one of the most terrifying things to a pilot, especially a newer pilot.  While spins are very dangerous and often end very poorly for pilots who accidentally get themselves into a spin, they are actually, at their core, very gentle and low stress maneuvers.  Given the danger involved in not recovering promptly at the first sign of a spin, it is a good idea to get some thorough training both on the ground and in the air on how to best recover and recognize the signs a spin is about to occur.


What’s in this course:

  • AOA and Stalled Airflow
  • Stall / Spin Briefing
  • Spin / Stall awareness and developed spins in the airplane

What you’ll get out of this course:

  • A better understanding of how the airplane behaves before, during, and after a spin.
  • A basic understanding of how to get into and how to get out of a spin
  • A better understanding of how the four left turning tendencies act on the airplane in a stall and during a spin
  • A certificate at the end of the course when you successfully pass the end of course exam!

How long does this take?

Expect to spend about 30-60 minutes on this course in total.  Feel free to spend longer and revisit the LESSONS and TOPICS as many times as you’d like.

    Great info here. I had to watch the clips a few times to absorb it all. Thank you so much to FLY8MA for putting up these courses for FREE!!! The quiz is not as easy as you might think.

    I’m a helicopter pilot working on getting my fixed wing transition and this class was just what I needed to help me understand some of the airplane specific terms and procedures.

    The information in this course was very useful. I now have a better understanding of how spins work and the concepts involved in recovering from them.

    Again an excellent course however another pathetic looking cheap and nasty certificate just about qualifies for hanging up in the outside bog.

    This was the first course that I have done on fly8ma.com. I am impressed with how well I caught on and retained the information. This is due to the sheer expertise of the instructor. Watching how he can enter a spin and not even have his voice change as he plummets to the ground shows his immense confidence. That confidence carries over to the lesson and made me confident in what I was learning.
