Accelerated Spin Demonstrations
March 12, 2014 Leave a comment
It’s important to use the correct sequence of control inputs when recovering from a developed spin. Absent specific guidance from the aircraft manufacturer in the aircraft flight manual (also known as the POH), the PARE technique taught by Rich Stowell is a proven sequence.
- Rudder–full opposite direction of spin
- Elevator–forward to reduce angle of attack and break the stall.
This video shows what typically happens if you push forward on the stick or yoke before you apply rudder. The spin accelerates. That rapid, changing rotation can disorient the pilot and delay recovery.
