Master Instructor Rich Stowell, FAA 2006 National Flight Instructor of the Year, has released his new book entitled, The Light Airplane Pilot's Guide to STALL/SPIN AWARENESS. The book draws on 100 years of stall/spin research as well as Stowell's two decades and nearly 30,000 spins of teaching experience.

According to airshow pilot and spin training advocate Patty Wagstaff, "We've been losing pilots needlessly to the stall/spin for far too long. It's time we did something about it! For starters, every pilot should read this book."

To that end, Stowell's 520-page book exposes twelve common stall/spin myths. The book then devotes four chapters to an historical look at the stall/spin; three more chapters make sense of accident statistics; four chapters explore the spin environment from airplane design and human factors standpoints; eight chapters form the basis for a comprehensive ground school in stall/spin awareness; and the final four chapters tackle the spin training debate. Appendixes offer a compilation of spin recovery information for more than 100 single- and twin-engine airplanes, including an in-depth analysis of the controversial Piper Tomahawk.

Jim Patton, retired Chief of Flight Operations at NASA Langley, provides the book's Foreword and guest-authors an interesting chapter about his extraordinary career as a spin test pilot.

From the back cover:

"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 stall/spin 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 & spins
  • The physiology & human factors involved with spinning
  • Stall/spin dynamics & critical flight operations
  • Important advice from experts & researchers
  • The truth about manufacturer-supplied information
  • How to take charge of your stall/spin education

  • Pros:
  • Review: The print in this book is very faint and hard to read.
    It is almost as if the printer was running low on ink and was too cheap to refill the ink hopper.
    If this faint print is the normal state of affairs then be prepared for eyestrain at more than 400 plus pages of reading discomfort.
    Very disappointing !
