Video: practicing spins

0

Spins are not a required maneuver for the private pilot certificate, but if you’re planning on earning a flight instructor certificate you’ll have to perform them for the checkride. As this video shows, that doesn’t have to be a scary experience – in fact, spins are a lot of fun. Ride along with an instructor from the Patty Wagstaff Aerobatic School as he demonstrates spin recovery in an Extra 300.

Stay tuned for a complete aerobatics course from Sporty’s and Patty Wagstaff.
