Video: practicing spins

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.

    One does not have to demonstrate spins on the flight instructor check ride. One does have to have an endorsement that the pilot has had the training and is able to teach spin avoidance and recovery.
