I’ve posted several new videos shot last week while I was flying my Extra 300L near Las Vegas. You can find the videos (in .wmv format) in one of my SkyDrive folders. The video titles should be self-explanatory.
One video shows the close- and extended trail portion of a three-ship formation flight. I was number 3, working with an RV-6A and RV-8.
The area where I was flying is southwest of Boulder City, NV (61B), just south of the "substations" marked on the chart near the dry lake bed.
My friends at APS Emergency Training just posted a great discussion of AoA and recoveries from unusual attitudes. You can read the article online or download it as a .pdf. I highly recommend the articles published by BJ and his staff. You can find videos on the site, too.
I’ve also been working on a Web site for a new group of instructors who provide stall/spin/upset training—The Council for Unusual Attitude Training and Education (CUATE).
