Award-winning flight instructor and aviation video host Rich Stowell has condensed eight years and 2,000+ hours of experience teaching recoveries from spins and other unusual attitudes into a 240-page manual sprinkled with 128 illustrations. Touted as the "definitive work on an important subject," the book provides a common sense treatment of many subjects inadequately addressed during the course of normal flight training. Several topics critical to safety are covered in detail: basic aerodynamics, turn dynamics, stall/spin dynamics, roll dynamics, glide performance, and off-airport landing scenarios.

Stowell unravels such perennial aviation mysteries as the intricate relationship between pitch and power, the significance of the V-g Diagram, the real cause of spins, the behavior of wingtip vortices, and the human factors influencing aeronautical decision-making. In the process, the reader learns simplified emergency strategies to cope with a host of in-flight maladies, including: spins and spirals, inverted attitudes, wake turbulence, control failures, and engine failures.

The timely information in this book is applicable to pilots at all levels of experience.

“Rich Stowell has the unique ability to dissect complex topics in a way that all pilots can understand. His message is safety and his approach makes sense.”
Rod Machado, aviation speaker, educator & author

“In recent years, the airlines have begun to realize the critical importance of preparing their pilots for the need to employ emergency maneuvering in the case of attitude upsets. Rich Stowell, who has been in the forefront of such training for years, has just written a book that provides similar advice for general aviation pilots. Emergency Maneuver Training is destined to contribute significantly to general aviation safety, and I recommend it to all who want to keep their airplanes out of the scrap yard.”
Barry Schiff, author, video host, retired airline pilot
