The 12 most popular Stall/Spin myths exposed. Don't fear the stall/spin - Master It!

The Wright brothers gave us the gift of powered flight more than a century ago. But the gift has its limitations: potentially dangerous stalls and spins lurk beyond the critical angle of attack. This book combines 100 years of light airplane research with practical knowledge about the post-stall environment into one of the most comprehensive guides to stall/spin awareness available

You'll learn:
* Who's most at risk of a stall/spin accident.
* What your instructor may not know about stalls and spins.
* The physiology and human factors involved with spinning.
* Stall/spin dynamics and critical flight operations.
* Important advice from experts and researchers.
* The truth about manufacturer supplied information.
* How to take charge of your stall/spin education.
