Stall/Spin Awareness

The removal of the requirement for the testing of Exercise 13 Spin from the Flight Test Guide — Private Pilot Licence — Aeroplane does not reduce the importance of continued training in spin recovery.

In addition, a greater emphasis should be placed on the recognition and prevention of the stalls that can lead to a spin.

This document is not a replacement for the Flight Instructor Guide (TP 975), the Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH) or the Aircraft Flight Manual (AFM). It provides supplemental guidance to flight instructors and is meant to complement and expand on the procedures described in Exercises 12 and 13 of the Flight Instructor Guide.

To encourage the use of Scenario Based Training, detailed guidance is included in developing scenarios that simulate real world situations.
