This book emphasizes NASA data on stalls and spins along with interviews with factory test pilots together with data from manufacturers. With extensive experience in both high-performance and general aviation aircraft, the author thoroughly explains why there is no "standard recovery" from a spin and so focuses on those common factors which effect any aircraft in any condition.

Now published and distributed by Aircraft Technical Book Company. Formerly by Airguide Publications.
