A detailed study of stall-spin in light airplanes. Written by John Lowery, highly experienced in both pilot training and aircraft flight testing, this book emphasizes NASA data on stalls and spins in general-aviation aircraft and including interviews with factory test pilots together with data from aircraft manufacturers. Added to these are the author's own extensive experience in both high-performance and general-aviation aircraft.

Coverage includes the stall and stall speed, multi engine characteristics, T-tail consideration, the effect of high lift devices, asymmetrical thrust, the effect of CG, how the stall leads to and affects the spin, inverted and flat spins, stall/spin recovery techniques and much more.

This book should be considered mandatory for any pilot who wants to, (or does not want to) explore this much misunderstood aspect of flight.
